Today I have been searching for subject area teachers who use twitter, especially those who teach in the disciplines I am concerned with. In doing so, I came across Brad Ovenell-Carter, who teaches in British Columbia. His remix of Will Farren’s graphics from his “Insulat-Ed” post is fantastic. Below is a copy of the message I sent to my Connections teachers:
Hope you all are preparing for a great New Year’s Eve Celebration. I wanted to pass this along to all of you to see what you make of it:
- What is networked learning?
- How can we help our student create their own networks?
Over the last year or so, the network I have set up teaches me more and leads me in more interesting directions than I ever could have found on my own. It’ not just about resources and websites, but rather ideas and learning when I want, and where I want. Our students deserve this. You deserve this.
