PLN revised

PERSONAL LEARNING NETWORK An infographic: this was created through Easel.ly http www.easel.ly/ Reflection of the PLN APLN is a very important vessel for most profession and the same is mine as a part-time teacher and student, currently teaching, on part-time basis, at Landmark Christian School and the same time a student at Walden University. Through my personal learning network above I have managed to make healthy friendship, professional and religious relations and engaged in constructive mind opening engagements through sharing knowledge, experiences and other relevant information.
In the past years I used to teach at East Coweta High School. During my time at East Coweta High School I made connection with my former colleague with whom we still share through twitter, emails and messages on career related issues and on the state of the school since I left. To boost my depth in my career and general knowledge I am also subscribed to journals which includes. American Education Research journal, Electronic journal of e-learning and The Journal which help me keep in touch with trending issues in the world of educational technology (Richardson &amp. Mancabelli, 2011). As an upcoming education technologist, these platforms plays a very crucial role in sharpening ability of applying technology at my current place of work, Landmark Christian School. I also engage in social media for further information and through this platform follow authors like. Alan Januszeuski, Michael Molenda and Dr Darci Harland. To keep tabs with my peers I also involve myself in social media revelation through different media platforms, such as twitter, edmodo network, text messages, Diigo networking tools and emails.
At Landmark Christian School I am taken in as trained professional education technologist and thus falling in the vast area of Education. The educational technology has been effective at building my career through sharing of experiences, knowledge and information from various social backgrounds. With such advances in technology, one is able to learn that education technology alters on the outcome of both teaching and learning, and altering on processes of teaching and learning (Januszewski &amp. Molenda, 2007). Engaging in seminal arguments helps at underlying different experiences and after putting these experiences differently. Experiments with technology combined with different teaching and learning experiences are different from the traditional forms of learning and teaching (Siricharoen, 2013). The personal learning network (PLN) has been effective at necessitating on my studying experiences with the media and technology through understanding on the in-depth of their role in both learning and teaching. Through engaging in the social media PLN, I have been able to realize that ICT can have many benefits to the daily lives of people and the society as a whole.
