Any chance you get to meet your PLN in person is something you need to take advantage of. The human connections you make allow you to grow and evolve as an educator and as a person. A 140 character tweet or a pin on a Pinterest Board cannot replace these connections. The opportunity to speak with people about areas of education and/or life is vital. Do not sell short the importance of human connections.
My next few blogs will be about my experiences at two recent conferences: Ohio Educational Technology Conference (#OETC14) & the National Association of Secondary School Principals (#NASSP14). I will be discussing the importance of Tweet Peeps, the significance of great session presentations and how they can improve your schools, and what conferences should really be marketing. Stay tuned.
