Personal Learning Networks

Developing one's personal learning network is greatly facilitated by the access and participatory nature of the Read/Write Web ("Web 2.0"). The following educators blog regularly about the shifting nature of education and the classroom. You will find issue-oriented posts as well as practical applications of emerging tools and ideas. I've tried to give character to the blog links, and I hope you will explore these writers and engage in the conversations they stimulate (via comments on their blogs or writing on your own blog).

Note: One of the best ways to "read" on the web is to set up subscriptions to sites using a "reader." Two of the simplest tools to use are Google Reader and Bloglines. Make it a daily/weekly practice to log onto your reader and read! If you'd like to set up a reader, please let me know: ldeisley@lovett.org
