This year a team of educators from our school district has been fortunate to participate in year-long work with Powerful Learning Practice (PLP). We’re at the point in our work that we are doing an Action Research Project. One of our goals is for each of us to further develop our Personal Learning Networks (PLNs). I’ve written about this in the past on this blog.
As we explore the power of PLNs, we’re curious about how others have noticed the relationship between having a PLN and a possible impact on student learning. How has being a connected educator changed or transformed what takes place in the classroom (or school, library, etc.)?
Perhaps this can’t be measured with data from standardized tests. But surely there are anecdotal stories about how the connections we’ve made through Twitter, blogs, and other social networks have influenced schools, classrooms, student engagement, or has been transformational in any way.
If this is something you are are willing to share, please do so in the comment area below or get in touch with me @bonniebird on Twitter.
Thank you! We’re happy to share the results!
