Hoping this facility will soon be available to use on aggregators other than Tweetdeck (which I don't use).  Looks useful, particularly for themed storytelling. #socmed #curation

Ise Tweetdeck? Then this is for you.

I realize this is old news but it is still relevant and new to a large number of teachers and pre-service students.

David Bramley's curator insight, November 20, 2013 2:01 PM

Changing your behaviour to develop a personal/professional learning network will be essential to thrive in an era of perpetual change.  The old focus on Continuing Professional Development is no longer fit for purpose and this video delivers  advice on creating a network  based on research

CedricBorzee's curator insight, January 22, 2:01 PM

The author points 3 criteria for Learning Networks to emerge :

- user ownership

- user independence

- user self-determination 

 

Then 3 "values" - that could also be defined as "Attitudes"
- Trust 

- Openness

- Integrity

 

Last part is on how to "nurture" the right climate for Learning Networks to thrive.
