The Innovative Educator: The 5 Cs to Developing Your Personal Learning Network | Personal Learning Networks for Educators | Scoop.it

In the 21st century teachers are no longer the sole imparters of information. Instead their role shifts to empowering students to learn independently in part by developing personal learning networks in areas of passions, talents, and interests. Not only are these real-world connections valuable, they enable learning to move from the preparation for life to the living of life by providing individuals with access to learners, leaders and experts around the world bringing together communities, resources and information impossible to access solely from within school walls.

Free Technology for Teachers: 10 Ways for Teachers & Students to Build Websites

The lines between blogging platforms, website platforms, and wiki platforms are not always clear. I have a somewhat simplistic explanation that I give to teachers who don't have a web presence yet, but want to create one for their professional work. Here's the explanation: websites are good for providing a static resource of information, blogs are good for frequent updates and communication, and a wiki is great for collaborating on the creation of a reference site. For the teacher who wants to create a website, here are ten good platforms to try.
