PLN at work in the class
We talked quite a bit today at a tech meeting about what classrooms need to look like. We hit upon a major theme that we termed audience. Everyone in our group chipped in about how we can make student work relevant by bringing an audience to them. It is no longer an audience of one (the teacher) for our students. It struck me how important it was for me to build a robust PLN to bring these audiences into the classroom. I can now see that if my network is really strong my role as a teacher will have changed. I am starting to think of myself as a conduit as much as a facilitator.
