Blog Post #5

PLN's are an important part of growing as a teacher. PLN's, or Personal Learning Networks, are the people and tools you use for help or collaboration. While Twitter is a great tool for networking, I recently discovered Symbaloo Edu and I soon after became obsessed. Symbaloo is a website and an app for you phone where you can have all of the resources you use in one spot and with one click. You can make "Webmixes" which are basically categories for grouping websites or other resources. Thousands of teachers have already made Webmixes that they have shared and that you can add to your collection as well. This is a great way to keep track of all of you personal resources and a way to discover and share new ones. It is also easily accessible from any computer as long as you sign in with your username. I will most definitely continue to use this extremely helpful site.
