  1. These link lists you prepare and share are so packed with ideas and possibilities – thank you for them. Much appreciated. I’m showing just one of them in my staff development day presentation tomorrow (on personal learning networks) to show colleagues how just one blog post packs a bunch of professional development possibilities.

  2. This is so timely. We have been discussing whether or not to block Facebook in my school. This will give us lots to keep the discussion going. Thanks!
