Blog Post #7

The Networked Students did a good job on the video.The video demonstrates how students no longer have to hand in their information anymore. Teachers now found ways to make learning effective, by demanding students to take the knowledge and apply it.I loved how they use pictures to get their points across. They talked about how students can be their own teachers. I like that networking gives students the time to build their own way of learning and meet other people. Teaching is changing everyday and technology is becoming more reliable. But in my opinion teachers will always be a key resource.

"Why does the networked students even need a teacher?" Because students need some guidance. Teachers are the one who give them the opportunity to build their information on their own. As teachers also help students make a way for themselves to become more open to different learning was through technology and  other resources. Teachers are here to make sure that students are making the right decision. Teachers can only help so much. They can make a difference if the student lets them. Networking can give students a more hands on based and having fun. Not just staying in the books because there is more to learning then just a book.I can say I am ready to become an networked teacher. I am willing to go the distance to become a great one.

A 7th Grader Personal Learning Environment (PLE)

This video has taught me a lot.. I really was not sure what a PLE or PLN was till I saw this video. PLN can keep you more organized and its an easy way to obtain information. It is a quicker way to get to favorite web links faster, and a great way to organized information about a certain topic or subject. The 7th grader showed me a way to be more organized and she was very creative with her PLE. I think I can get use to using a PLN from now on.


  1. Jeanette,

    Your grammar, spelling and sentence structure looked very good.

    The only punctuation problem that I found was very minor. In the last sentence on this post you said, "I think I can get use to using a PLN from now on"
    -You should have added a period on the end of your sentence.

    On the assignment, Dr. Strange said to leave 3 or more paragraphs in the section titled "The Networked Students". You probably should have put in a little more detail about what the videos you watched were about. That would have, most likely, given you more paragraphs.

    Overall, you did very well! Keep up the good work!

  2. Jeanette,

    I noticed a few minor grammar issues but nothing major. Just be sure to proof read before posting. As Lauren noted, I noticed you only have one paragraph for "The Networked Student" section. You do need three paragraphs for this section as it says in the Instruction Manual. Developing a PLN can be very helpful as you will find out.
