Educator PLN Ning

Very cool! I just watched my first video at I’m digging the social networking opportunities for educators. We truly are lifelong learners and never before has there been such an opportunity to learn from so many other people. I highly reccomend watching this video, I remember when I first became a teacher in 1996 when I joined Teach for America. I felt like I was completely alone. I busted my butt for two years without any outside collaboration; and while I taught my students, I was clearly not an effective educator. Today, there is no excuse for not being an effective educator given the web-based tools with which we are all provided freely. Up until last week, I thought that one had to be an internet guru to do this stuff, but now I realize that I can learn any of the applications and use them to help my students acheive. Thanks Al Gore!
