Learning to Network . . . Networking to Learn

Dean Shareski
Prairie South School Division

There’s always new web tools, but it’s more important to become part of an online learning network than to master any specific tool. Learn how tools such as blogs, social networks, social microblogs (like twitter), and more can all support personal learning. This session focuses on the overriding importance of making connections and making contributions, regardless of the tool being used. Leave with concrete steps for building your own personal learning network.
