Great piece! Really difficult to change the habit of some teachers and students who like to be handed the photocopied piece of research though. Would love to see more of this!
John Rudkin's comment, February 26, 2013 3:16 AM
I has to change though. The continuation of the tardy old ways has to be swept aside. That approach can have its place - there needs to be a blend (of course), but attitudes need to change.
Deborah Owen's curator insight, February 26, 2013 9:19 AM

Help students become more engaged in their learning by directing their own learning, at least to some extent.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Teacher 's Guide on Creating Personal Learning Networks

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Teacher 's Guide on Creating Personal Learning Networks | Learning in Libraries | Scoop.it

As social media become more and more predominant as platforms of connection and collaboration, the need for creating and maintaining a PLN ( Personal/Professional Learning Network ) becomes more pressing. As teachers and educators we are expected to be on top of the latest trends that can inform and enhance our classroom teaching as well as our professional growth.We are also expected to know the web tools that our students use and the new ones we can use with them in the future; but this is not always possible and because not all of our time constraints it becomes difficult to keep up the the new releases . It is at times like these that you can call upon your PLN.
