Using a Personal Learning Network for Professional Development

I’ve been absent awhile and its good to be back. I started a new degree program (Master in Educational Technology) and I just haven’t had a lot of extra time to do other things. Why, you might ask, am I getting yet another degree (will be my 4th)? When I developed my online course in EBM for the medical school I became very interested in online teaching which then led to an interest in mobile teaching which then led me to use a variety of tech tools for teaching. I realized I had no real reason to use one tool over another except for its “coolness factor”. I then decided I wanted formal training in educational technology. All this rambling is to set up the fact that I learned about educational technology through my personal learning network. I made the video below explaining what this is and how to develop one using social media. While I focus on education I do list some EBM thought leaders you should follow on Twitter (in addition to me of course!).
