What is a PLN?.....Professional/Personal Learning Network

When you connect and develop relationships with other educators, through a variety of ways, to support each others ongoing professional learning and create a dynamic and vibrant learning environment for all. You probably already have a personal learning network and didn't even know it!! ;)

Goal Setting.........from now on......


SMART-Goal-Setting.jpg



Begin with your Action Plan from session 4 and set some team goals to keep you moving forward with IWBs. Make sure your goals are SMART!

We will use the Shared Goals gadget in iGoogle to share and monitor our goals. iGoogle is your own customisable, personalised Google homepage. To learn more about iGoogle, visit my Debs Place wiki here.





About your goals:
  • What are our goals, team and/or personal, around using the IWB in your numeracy classroom?
  • What will your classroom look like? Numeracy lessons look like with the IWB as part of your tool set? [Visualise your classroom. What will the students be doing? What will you be doing? How will the classroom programs be organised?]
