Another day of learning

Yesterday was our second session at #MESPA in Marlborough, the class, Using Web 2.0 and Social Networking in the Classroom. I started the day by direct messaging Pat Larkin on twitter (@ Burlington High School Principal, blog) to connect with our class for a discussion on Professional Development and building a Personal Learning Network/PLN.  Little did I know, Pat was presenting in New Jersey and had a ustream session setup.  We connected with Pat's session via ustream  joined the discussion and the chat in google docs. Later in the day, Pat skyped with us while on his train ride back home.  While skyping with us, Pat continued to tweet late into the evening.  I hope everyone enjoyed the opportunity to connect with Pat and the conference.

On another note, I enjoyed all the presentations by everyone yesterday and look forward to our next class on  3/19.   I will keep you posted on my "adventure video" thanks to a tweet and some inspiration from Burlington's #ntcamp last week with @ and @ . Greg's Social Studies blog post about his class adventure and how to setup the process.
