We started News and Notes to update everyone on all the exciting things that are going on in education in general. We want to keep you abreast of great blogs, interesting discussions, and new developments we discover from members of our PLN. 

The Power of the PLN!

The Twitterverse has changed my life!  Each day I come across committed educators who make a difference in classrooms everyday. Additionally, they find the time to share their perspective and practice with teachers around the world. I am committed to using the Quick Key Blog to highlight these educators. Keep an eye on my twitter feed for the hashtag #teachermade to follow the contributions of these amazing frontline educators.

I connected with Bobbi Capwell through Quick Key, she brings a well rounded perspective from a frontline educator. I was honored that she included me in one of her blog posts about her PLN, and I recommend you follow her blog with all deliberate speed. You rock Bobbi!

From Bobbi Capwell’s Blog:

Things I do now that I have a PLN

It is funny how your perception changes once you start really communicating with the people you follow on any Social Media. These folks I am talking about are some of the most incredibly brilliant and creative people in the world. My PLN reminds me of the Nursery Rhyme with the Butcher, Baker and Candlestick maker- I have Educational Consultants, Educators of all subjects and ages, Preachers, Musicians, Chefs, Programmers, and Authors. What a support system it has become! I thought this would be a great way to express what I have learned from them. Sometimes, it might be a quick status, tweet or a direct message that means something to me or that makes me think “I want to learn more about that” or “How Cool! I could share that with my teachers!”
