What is a PLN?
Watch this fabulous 2 minute interview of Steven Anderson explaining the difference between a PLC and PLN, and its power.
In the past year, almost 70 AJUSD educators joined Diigo to start sharing resources. Approximately 100 AJUSDers subscribed to blogs in Google Reader, and roughly 30 educators started Twitter accounts, including me.
We started moving to a one-to-one environment at Cactus Canyon Junior High (CCJH). Our professional development (PD) throughout the year focused on pedagogy, which naturally included differentiating instruction with technology. Therefore our PD modeled our beliefs.

As I reflect on this past year, I'm encouraged by our progress and look forward to seeing where we will be this time next year!
- How has your experience with growing in a PLN made an impact?
- How do you move beyond the four walls of the classroom?
- What else would you like to add to this discussion?
Special thanks to Nick Sauers for coming out for 1:1 training and getting AJUSD teachers hooked up on Twitter & RSS in Google Reader amongst all the other things you did. Special thanks to Jonah Salsich for going above and beyond to help others out!
