The current Victorian PLN course is now winding down as participants begin reflecting on their course through digital stories and catching up on any units that they may have missed during the term.
Over the 12 units of the course participants have discovered great web tools, written blogs, explored curly issues like digital citizenship and discovered the wonderful community of educators that exists online. You can connect with the participants and the wider VicPLN community at the Facebook group, which now has close to 200 members.
A major feature of the course were the regular web conferences which covered a range of topics. You can access the recordings below. The sessions were:
Organising information online (Twitter, Blogging, IGoogle)
Integrating technology into schools (featuring Tony Richards)
Online databases and search skills (featuring Andrew McConville from the State Library of Victoria)
Gaming in Education (featuring Paul Callaghan)
All of the recordings will open in Blackboard Collaborate (or Elluminate). For help getting started with this web conferencing tool, have a look at the web conferencing guide on the Victorian PLN blog.
