Social Networking

I have blogged in the past about social networking and its vast possibilities. Today I am sitting back and thinking how did I get here! I am going beyond basic networking and implementing ideas from my Professional Learning Network (PLN). Today I am attempting to make a home made Interactive Whiteboard. All I need is a software download, a Wiimote and an infrared pen!
I sit here shaking my head at the prospect of moving from simple chit-chat with other teachers to making a home-made version of a board which costs in the 4 figure range...Holy cow!
I cannot thank my PLN enough for broadening my horizons and challenging me to step further into how technology can be ever changing and impact all learners!

I'm always amazed at what I learn and implement too! My younger sister asked me yesterday, how did you learn all of this stuff? I just smiled.
