Final Post on PLN
I have continued using Twitter to build my personal learning network. I've added several educators from around the world and enjoy reading their posts just as much as reading the stars of hollywood's posts. Some of the people I have added and continue to follow include Karl Fisch, Nicholas Provenzano, Mr. Chamberlain, Web Wise Kids, and several other educators and educational groups around the world. I found most of them after I added Dr. Strange on the network. I really enjoy the links the Web Wise Kids post. Today is Earth Day, and they posted a link to the website of the whitehouse. The link included an article entitled, "A New Foundation For Engery and the Environment," and I encourage everyone to read the article. It includes some very interesting ideas for the future. I intend to continue building my PLN for the remainder of my college career so that by the time I graduate, I will have many connections to look to for advice with my teaching. I had never considered using Twitter or any other form of social networking to help benefit my career, but I'm excited to see where all this will be going!
