Social Bookmarking

 

Social bookmarking applications allow

users to share their favorite online content

with one another while also creating onlinebookmarks that the user can refer

to in the same way he would a bookmark created offline in his web browser.

What does your PLN look like?

Tuesday, July 20

In class:       The focus of this class will be on using Twitter to establish a personal learning network (PLN) and how social bookmarking can be used as a tool for both teaching and learning.

Homework Assignment:

1.  This week's blog post should be about your experiences setting up your PLN (personal learning network), the people you connect with, any positives or negatives that occur, and any questions or revelations that you have while in search of global colleagues. 

2.  Prepare to present your final project to the class next week.  Choose an application that you think would enhance the learning in one of your classes.  Present it to our class explaining why you choose this particular application, how you plan to use it, and what you believe the positive outcome and challenges to be from incorporating this in your lessons.  Your final blog post next week will be to document your presentation.
