2. What has Inspired YOU to Connect?
3. The world is changing because of social web technologies. Our kids are using them. No one is teaching them how to use them to their full learning potential, and ultimately, as teachers and learners, thats our responsibility. To do that, we need to be able to learn in these contexts for ourselves.

4. Personal Learning Network
Personal learning networks are not new. We have long relied on our families, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances to supplement our knowledge about the world.
