Vicki- you are a great inspiration for a new PLN’er that is trying to transform his staff to utilizile mobile learning and PLNs. I am a principal of a middle school and I attended a session you had last year at ISTE in DC. A total game changer for me-so many useful ideas and strategies! Since then, I have expanded use of mobile technology (particularly cell phones)in our school with great success. I even visited an old post as a resource (spies like us? Brilliant and forward thinking for 2007). We’ve been using cell phones for three years now and I even wrote a book on cell phone activities that could be used in the classroom based on activities we’ve done. Currently I am looking increase capacity of my staff starting their own PLN (for professional development) beginning with Twitter and using a blog as a means of weekly communication with my staff. Thanks again for being a great inspiration for me and for educators–When I grow up…! I hope you are feeling better. Here are my two blogs that are really really new. Any suggestions would be appreciated
For my staff:
