A visualization of my Personal Learning Network. I used http://popplet.com/ to create it and link everything together. The five main ways I connect with people are around the outside, with smaller categories on the inside.
I like the idea of having my PLN having a permanent home in the cloud. At my school all the math teachers are in the same hallway so there is a lot of hallway chat going. We share assignments on paper , and for tests we email the documents. With the blog I could see myself posting the documents with brief explanations about how I used it. Also getting some feedback from the other teachers that used it would be awesome. Next year, I am going to have hashtags for each of my classes so students can interact with with me and with each other.

  1. Hi Ray,

    Great reflection! I appreciate that you identified how each of these pieces in your PLN work as well as the visualization with the lines notating further connections. Are there any areas that you wish you utilized more or that you could see a benefit to improving? I am glad that you found the hashtags as something you can implement in your classroom!

  2. I wish I could get more teachers in my department work electronically together. At department meeting, and collaborative time, I'm the only teacher that brings my computer with me. If I don't have my computer with be that basically mean I don't plan on working, which is true. There are so many meetings where we leave with, "OK some type that up and email it to everyone" and we should have just all been working on it together as we did it. What I'm saying is that I need to upgrade the people in my network so we can all work together better.
