Social Networks Are the R&D Teams of the Future
During the ASCD annual conference session "Professional Learning Networks Using Web 2.0 Tools," presenter Meg Ormiston shared networking tools and big ideas. She covered a variety of professional learning networks and emphasized that harnessing the wisdom of crowds is the future of improving educational practices. An ASCD blog post highlights some of her ideas as well as the session's Wikispace. The post also asks readers how they are using Web 2.0 to network with colleagues, and what benefits, resistance or challenges have they witnessed among educators.
