PLN Progress Report
So far I have encountered many valuable resources that have ideas and new ways of thinking regarding education. What I have yet to consider is the way to streamline my sources. I have not yet chosen anything like Symbaloo, but I realize now is the time. I definitely want to include some of the blogs I have read through this class. I really like Mrs. She's class blog. This New Zealand second grade class is very special. I see how parents are responding with the pride of viewing their children's projects online. I also like Langwitches. I need to create a "one stop shop" as I find blogs or sites that I want to use in the future, rather than back track to find them. Of course, there are the standard YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook.
I want to seek out a mentor that will help me along the way. I have a few teacher friends that may be good mentors. It may be that my mentor is someone I have yet to meet. Either way, I know I will need one. I am really enjoying blogging as well as discovering what tools Google offers. At the end of the class, I want to have a PLN that will serve me beyond this class.
