"There is little doubt that Social Networks are the backbone of an educators [PLN] personal learning network ... the challenge is that it is becoming confusing when deciding which to join. In addition we are also drowning in all the digital data being generated by them.
In this session we'll look at the myriad of social networks available and why you might choose one over the other and how you might survive the potential overload.
This session will be of interest to all lifelong educators k-to-grey ... although I will attempt to keep the illustrative content relevant to those with a language interest.
It is hoped you will come to the session willing to share your own experiences in and about Social Networks."
