Great # 2

I am going to acknowledge another edublog that I visit frequently for ideas and to keep on top of things as a teacher.

Look out, it’s amazing.

This is a blog created by Kelly Tenkely who is an educator and leading technology consultant when it comes to integrating technology in education.

Kelly is not someone I know personally but is someone that is a part of my PLN – my Professional Learning Network.

I follow her on twitter and her blog posts when I can, where she is always updating her learning community to new events, key learning concepts and resources for teachers when it comes to integrating technology in the classroom. She provides access to lesson plans online (for a small fee) and e-zines about news in education in relation to technology. (The e-zines are really quite amazing and rich with information.) Furthermore, she is always posting new and exciting apps, web 2.0 tools for the classroom and information from worldwide conferences with educators around the globe.

Kelly is a teacher but of late has left the classroom to pursue her dream of being a technology consultant as well as starting her own school! Yes, she has just recently opened a private school for students: where technology is an over-arching tool in learning for the students.

It is very worthwhile as an educator in the 21st century to be connected with people like Kelly and the work they are doing for/in education. I suggest you check out her blog post on “Ideas to Inspire” specifically just to get a taste of what is happening or can be happening in the classroom from educators throughout the world.

Beware though, it can be a little intimidating and overwhelming so buckle in and enjoy the ride.
