Project PLN Call for articles

Project PLN is an idea that @thenerdyteacher cooked up and asked if I would help with.  Of course I said yes!  If you are unfamiliar with Project PLN, you can read more about it and view the first issue here.  The second issue of Project PLN is set to come out October 12.  We would love to have your participation in it.  Take a look at October’s topic: The start of the school year can be crazy for teachers, so we would like everyone to share how they manage the start of school. These could be posts about classroom organization and management or fun lessons that get the students ready for the rest of the year. If you have a post you would like to see published in the October issue of Project PLN, you can do so in a few ways. You can tweet out your post using the hashtag #ProjectPLN, you can email it to us directly at ProjectPLN10@gmail.com or you can post a link on our Facebook page. The deadline for the October issue is Saturday October 2. For those of you who like to plan ahead, the November issue is going to focus on the Administration side of education. If you are an Administrator, we would love to feature your posts. We will have more details in October. We look forward to reading all about your best practices.

What it is: Web 2.0 resources are amazing, I love the potential for connecting students and teachers in a new way. edu 2.0 is an incredible free tool that allows teachers and students to connect and interact outside of the traditional classroom. This is, in essence, a virtual classroom.

How to integrate edu 2.0 into the classroom: edu 2.0 allows teachers to add a new dimension to teaching. Post private classes online, upload daily lessons, keep a student roster, student attendance, a calendar, assignments, grade book, graph scores, start a class forum, chat, wiki, polls, and feeds, create surveys and quizzes that can be completed online. This is a great way to extend teaching, teach students how to use web 2.0 tools, offer tutoring and out-side of school teaching, and offering courses to home school students or small schools who may not have the resources to offer specialized classes.

Tips: This is an amazing FREE resource, be sure to participate in the edu 2.0 forum. Graham, the creator, is extremely open to new ideas from teachers and often creates new features and implements them quickly based on user suggestions.
