Blog Post 10
I found watching the video Welcome to my PLE very helpful. This video was from a 7th grader giving a tour of her personal learning environment. Since I have been kind of stuck on what to do with my own PLN i found this video both interesting and useful. I have been just using my web browsers bookmarking or top sites and then searching for connections on twitter, but I noticed that the student was using Symbaloo. I went to that website and checked it out and I do think I will definitely be using this in addition to my delicious account.
I am proud to say that I have learned something from this 7th grade student and will be applying what I've learned for my assignments for this class.
Two Questions That Can Change Your Life by Daniel Pink was a very thought provoking video. In this video two questions were posed: 1. What's my sentence? and 2. Was I better today that yesterday? These two simple questions are very powerful. I can come up with so many sentences that I hope can be mine some day in the future as well as am always hopeful that I am always better today than I was yesterday.
My sentence : "I am trying to become the best teacher possible and impact the lives of every student that I teach."
