Gifu JALT:

Personal Learning Networks - The What, Why and How

Date: Saturday, February 19th, 2011 Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Speaker: Darren Elliott

The idea of the Personal Learning Network (PLN) is not, in itself, new. However Web 2.0 and mobile technologies are enabling teachers to connect as never before. This presentation will explore various issues surrounding the construction of a PLN, starting from the theoretical and moving to the practical. The presenter will discuss the new democracy of PLNs and connectivism, advise on how to build and maintain a PLN, and will also touch on the dangers of the "dripping tapÔ" of irrelevant information and ways in which to integrate the strands of a PLN across virtual and "real" worlds.
