Summary of eT@lking: Your PLN and life-long learning: a model for students

March 17, 2011

In this session for Wednesday, March 16th, Jo McLeay capably presented on building a PLN, demonstrating how she developed her network over the past 5 years. Her presentation stimulated some rich discussions in the chat on  life-long learning, the importance of using twitter and other social networking sites and the place of web conferencing in building networks. Thanks to Jo and the participants for a very powerful session.
