2. My PLN before thiscourse I had ZERO understanding of creating a social network not on facebook, never saw a tweet, never heard ofweb 2.0 I was known by my friends and family as the personwho NEVER knows the latest news because I was sothe opposite of in the know not on facebook,twitter, etc. My PLN was chatting with another teacher something I often didnt even do on a daily basis My circle was so small home and classroom and ona good day, the teachers in my hallway/pod 3. Twitter This is a reallynew conceptfor me I hadnever evenread a Tweetbefore I still feel alittle unsureaboutparticipation I think Ill feelbetter after Iobserve for alittle while 4.

Google Groups - joiningLove the Google tools education group so helpful for someone just learning tointegrate this into my classroom. Most essential tip for form tests make the firstquestion the students name. 6. Google Groups - creating I plan to also use google groups once schoolbegins to give the same permissions to agroup of people for some of my google docs For example: I created a google group for mygrade level partners/PLC team to use forcollaboration For example: I think it would be useful to makea classroom parent group for sharinginformation 7. Professional SocialNetwork Classroom 2.0 Joined Classroom 2.0 as my first professionalsocial network Posted an introduction, updated my profile,and tweeted my membership to get started 8.
