I feel that participating in an online community and a PLN are great ways for teachers to learn innovative ways to incorporate new ideas into their lessons. I have found that students respond positively in their learning when technology is incorporated in interesting ways. Personally, I enjoy sharing my thoughts publicly. I find it is a great way to get feedback from other professionals in my area of teaching.
