Keep on Moving!

PLN's are growing! The networks are sharing and we are very excited about all the opportunities that lie ahead.  Just to give you some perspective, in two months we have had over:
  • 4000 views on this blog
  • 160 educators join the Google+ community
  • 270 followers on the @cbeilt Twitter community
We've been following, responding, and listening attentively to what CBE educators have to say. Here are just a few ed tech transactions that have taken place in the G+ community:
  • All things Maker
    • Maker Kits are being piloted in some CBE schools in the hopes of being offered to all schools in the near future. Brian Simmon's at Twelve Mile Coulee has shared some of his experiences with Maker Kits in the Classroom.
    • Maker Stations are popping up everywhere and Mike MacKenzie at Keeler School is on it.  He shares his school's Learning Commons story and explains how students come to build when the tools are offered.
  • Google Apps
  • 64 Days of Learning
  • Using social media to connect with the world
There is so much more learning ahead and that's why ILT will be offering more PLN sessions in May and June.
