I NEED TO SPEND the month of September convincing third level creative multimedia students in the Tipperary school of LIT to develop effective Personal Learning Networks.
I'm mentioning this important undertaking on my blog in hopes of getting feedback from virtual advisors who wish to share their knowledge. I'm looking for resources and links as well as opinions about Google tools (desktops or apps) and clever mobile apps (any operating system). It would be a big win if I can take these recommendations and empower students with networking skills that help them learn to learn. For example, user-generated tag clouds are a Pinboard resource that has improved my ability to aggregate ideas more efficiently. I can also use warnings that readers think I should share (i.e., about realising how the web remembers things you believe you've deleted). I also think it would pay to inform new students about the need to follow some form of checklist discipline about how they interact online.
