On a recent trip to Disney World, I was reminded of how I  loved fairytales growing up, both the original stories aw well as the Disney adaptations. I even tried my hand at writing fairytales!

Back-to-school resources on the Trading Post

Posted by Danielle Abernethy on Aug 10, 2016 8:17:28 AM

A Personalized Learning Network, or PLN, is a term used to describe a collection of social media connections, blog subscriptions, online forums, and other online resources that an educator has selected to to support their professional growth. A PLN is a place to find and share ideas. It may be as simple as reading a blog for new formative assessment ideas or exploring a series of lesson plans for a new idea to implement in your classroom. If you use Wixie, the Tech4Learning Trading Post is a must have for your PLN!
