Take charge of your own professional development and model learning for colleagues and students. By developing a PLN, you can investigate best practices and target your needs and interests. Anytime, anywhere. Our students are networking and we need to understand the spaces created by social media as well as how to engage kids. We need to see ourselves as curators and creators of content. 15Thursday, November 3, 2011 16.

Less focus on tools, more focus on teaching, learning and processes. Teachers and students alike need to take more control of their own learning. Educators must participate in learning communities in order to truly understand the dynamics and implications for students. Students should be participating in age appropriate networks across grade levels from early grades through high school. Schools should have a plan for providing safe networked learning opportunities for students and teachers. 53Thursday, November 3, 2011 54.
