Transforming Personal Learning Networks through Web 2.0

Description: In traditional Personal Learning Networks (PLNs), educators generally have been limited to those colleagues in close, physical proximity or available via phone or email. PLNs of the 21st Century utilize Web 2.0 tools and create a global network of opportunities for educators to grow professionally. Educators are enabled to participate in global discussions about best practices in education. In this session, participants will be introduced to proven web 2.0 tools and will evaluate those tools to use for their own PLNs.
