Why build a Personal Learning Network? 'Inside the Black Box’ was written by Black and William in 1998 and in it they describe the classroom as a black box with inputs and outputs but what occurred inside was a mystery.

Why build a Personal Learning Network?

For many teachers the reality has been that what occurs in their classroom has been both private and isolating, a matter between the teacher and his or her students but a task largely tackled alone. But this isolationist view is, in the age of the social media and networking increasingly challenged and more and more teachers are finding their voice, sharing their ideas and gaining valuable insights from a global community of connected educators. Understanding the value of the collective knowledge teachers have is a critical step towards understanding the role of a Personal Learning Network.

The flip side of access to this collective knowledge is understanding that you also have valuable knowledge to share.

From a reading perspective, images are important as they break up long articles and make it easier to digest information. Finding images for posts on Elegant Themes has not been difficult for me as I have been reviewing a lot of plugins and services. Therefore, I have been using screenshot images.

With many other topics, a screenshot cannot be used; however it is still important to include relevant images where possible. One of the stumbling points for many website owners is the uncertainty over whether an image can be used or not. You should therefore avoid searching for images using tools such as Google Images, as many of the images that you will find through the service have been used illegally.

We’ve been through a lot of ups and sideways with this site.

Too many baseball analogies? Sorry, had to think of baseball, think of baseball…oh yeah.

We were even accused of being a porn site by Google. Times have changed and changed drastically. Alterati.com will be archived and merged into Incunabula/Greylodge by the end of this month. We’re merging sites for editorial reasons. We’ve had a blast serving up nuggets of alternative goodness and will be continuing to do so on the new Inc/GL site into the foreseeable future.
