Notes:»

We teach in a time of rapid change, when, for the first time in history, we are preparing our students for a future that we can not clearly describe.  To accomplish this, education must become more adaptive to change — and for this to happen, “learning” must become a fundamental part of what it is to teach. Educators around the world are engaging in daily and self-directed professional development, utilizing an emerging family of  interactive and collaborative web applications.  With these tools, we are able to cultivate personal learning networks of people and information sources that help us do or jobs. Learn how to grow your own learning network and knowledge garden by connecting with other professionals, mining the greater global conversation, and mapping out libraries of ideas and content. Topics may include blogs and micro-blogging, social networks, social media networks, RSS, and publishing and data visualization techniques.
