February 2013

Develop your Personal Learning Network

I have been following a lot of blogs and learning. I have not contributed. I am still in the lurking stage. I am looking around, trying to find what all is there. I will read and follow them. I follow some on Twitter, some groups on Facebook.
I am also in a Science Collaborative at Region 4. Meeting educators from all over Houston, sharing lessons, tips, techniques and growing and learning has been an eyeopener for me this year. The Collaborative has great workshops that are offered free to us. Lots of free resources and materials are provided. And more importantly the support from all the teachers. 
Being an eTrainer has been an enriching experience for me. Learning new technology and then using it in our classrooms as well as teaching it to our campus teachers has been great. I feel so good to see all the teachers trying some tools in their classroom.
I am trying to Connect ( reach out), Contribute (share, post),Converse (sharing and responding and building relationships) and Request (for support, will be fruitful).


  1. LOL! I am (at times) a lucker still! It is hard to find the time to always meaningfully contribute to the collective wisdom! Sometimes I feel like what am I going to say that is any different. However, I think I have learned that sharing is a good thing so I have tried to slow down and be somewhat thoughtful!

    Not all learning has to take place online! The Science Collaborative sounds like a great learning opportunity. Unfortunately in teaching, there isn't a lot of time during the year devoted to such endeavors!

    Keep learning (and then teaching me)!

  2. Love the images in this post - really very appropriate! Of the four tasks that you have set yourself (Connect, Contribute, Converse, Request) which do you feel is going to be most fruitful and rewarding?

  3. You have a strong PLN already. It will only get stronger through all of your connections. So...when are you going to take the leap and post.
