What is a GLN?
Your global learning network or GLN is important to ensure you have necessary resources at your finger tips. There are many tools that can be used to build your GLN. You brought knowledge of some tools you used before beginning this course. After reading articles from experts on building a GLN that works for you, you will have a greater familiarity with other tools such as Delicious, Diigo, Twitter, Facebook, Ning, Skype, Blogger and Google. At this point in your learning process, you know that you can link any resource to the tool of your choice as long as it has RSS feed capabilities.

The tool you select should be one that meets your needs as an educator.

Watch a video to learn about RSS feeds.

Classroom 2.0

A resource that I use as part of my PLN is Classroom 2.0 . This is a NING that was created by Steve Hargadon . It is for anyone that is interested in learning more about social media and Web 2.0. One of the features that I try to take advantage of, when time allows, is the scheduled web casts that are attended by educators or others from all around the world. Many different topics regarding educational technology are presented by very knowledgeable people. They are participatory and encourage people to ask questions. They use Eluminate Live and even provide instructions for how to use Eluminate so that you can host your own webcast.They use an iGoogle calendar to schedule the events. I was even able to add the events (there are several daily) from their calendar to my personal iGoogle calendar with a click of a button. Also in the NING are connections to other PLC's on various topics. Hope you try it out!

This website makes coordinate geometry a fun, albeit irritating, game for students. It helps them recognize the equation of a line through repetition and the joy of killing the cockroach when the correct answer is given.
