I have to admit that I do feel guilty, very guilty for always taking and using things from PLNs, but never contributing to them. In accordance to the Getting Smart article by Dr. Mark Wagner on PLNs: Getting Smart PLNs, educators need to not only connect with others on PLNs, but they need to contribute to the network. Educators can use blogs, twitter, Google+, and many other avenues to produce and contribute their own information to their network.
With that being said, I want to become a real member of a personal learning network for educators. My goal is to try and contribute something for everything that I use from someone else. I know of course this will be difficult, so maybe I will start with 5 for 1, for every five things I use, I will contribute one thing to my PLN.
Here is a link to the video if you want to listen to Will Richardson again: Education Leadership: Will Richardson TEDxMelbourne I always find him very interesting and this is just another video I will use to help encourage my fellow teachers to use more technology in their classrooms.
