PLNs (Personal Learning Networks) or PLCs (Professional Learning Communities) are becoming very popular and useful for teachers today. PLCs allow teachers to collaborate ideas, lessons, and techniques through social networks and media. This app “Teachers Tech PLN” for iphone and ipad demonstrates how to build a professional learning community. This app furthers the technological advances in education. It was created by award winning educators and Apple’s distinguished educators whose job it is to assist teachers in the use of technology in the classroom. This app will help teachers bring more technology to their classroom in order to captivate their students.
It offers features such as:
Resources and news for teachers, students and parents.
Instructional videos demonstrating how to build a PLC
The Teachers Tech news channel that offers hundreds of articles on technology in education
and an “in-app” twitter box allows tweeting right from the app!
I think this app would be an awesome tool for teachers to help them begin using a PLC! For more information on this great app check it out HERE!
