Today I was watching Ken Shelton present about the Power of Professional Learning Networks at the CLMS Conference via UStream. Ken did a great job of sharing how effective and broad reaching your network can become in just a short amount of time. Those of us who use Twitter and Plurk are very familiar with giving shout outs during presentations so that people can see the far reach of these types of learning networks. As Ken was sharing, he mentioned that he thought that he had people in his network from almost every state. That got me thinking. Wouldn't it be cool to build a visual using Google Maps to show the far reach of the Ed Tech PLN? I have set up an editable Google Map where you can add your name, location and links to your website, wiki or blog and also your Twitter/Plurk name. The goal will be to see how many places we can represent in this way. Can we get all of the states? All of the Provinces? How many countries? Please share this link to our PLN map with as many of your connections as you can. Please also feel free to share this map, when sharing with others the power of our PLN.
Share this link with others.
