I have looked at the blogs from several colleagues and commented on a few. I am impressed that some of them are already finished! Several others are almost finished. Most, however, are right about on pace with me! I can see how PLNs will be helpful. I actually use PLNs already in finding plans/ideas for my subject matter. I have used Social Networking sites on my own for a while now, but just for fun...Facebook, Pinterest, Linked In, etc. I am planning on subscribing to the TAJE (Texas Assoc. of  Journalism Educators) site/serve list (are they still called that??) soon. I use their site all the time now to find lessons/Power Points that I use in Journalism I. I don't have a problem sharing my thoughts on PLNs, as I think the more people share, the better teachers we will become. Since I am the only person on our campus that teaches the courses I teach, I rely a lot on teachers from other schools in our district and across the state for ideas.

Tool One

Managed to create this blog pretty quickly b/c I have a personal blog with Blogger, so I already know how to use it. There is some major confusion b/c I have other email addresses registered with Blogger, but I think it will be fine. I hope. No other challenges, but I can see how this would be hard for teachers who have never used Blogger or created a Voki.
