Why should educators use a social networking site?

Posted on Sunday, October 27th, 2013 at 1:46 pm

To build a Personal Learning Network:


1. Learn with others: Realize you are not alone in the your classroom!

2. To serve your students: Access new resources and ideas to incorporate into your curriculum in hopes of reaching all learners

3.  To access a dynamic resource: The ability to gain knowledge and insight in a fluid world; we no longer by texts that assist in teaching, we lean on one another

4.  Extend your learning base: Professional development from multiple resources

5. To stay engaged in education: To maintain that spark, that passion for reaching/teaching others

    I know it seems like more on your plate, but trust me – if you can even devote 15 minutes a day to scanning resources in your personal network, in the end, you will end up saving yourself hours and hours of research time, your students will be thrilled with all of the new engaging ideas you bring to them, and you will develop rich relationships that would not otherwise be possible –even with the experts. Added bonus: you have a better understanding of what it means to learn in this environment. Our kids know about it – I think it is essential their teachers know too. 🙂
