Students Build Their PLN’s!
As Marketing & Business Management students prepare for the upcoming Social Media & Web 2.0 Trade Show, many have been researching various technology tools teachers can use for organization, professional development, and communication with colleagues and students. One tool in particular that my student, Lindsey Mote, has been researching and is excited to demonstrate to teachers at the trade show is the tool Planboard.
Lindsey took the initiative to reach out to the co-founder of Planboard, Suraj Srinivas (@srinivassuraj), in an effort to gather primary data on this tool. She engaged in a dialogue with the co-founder through the website’s chat feature, learned about the benefits of the tool, including how to create lesson plans which can be easily connected to Common Core State Standards, and she is ready to conduct a hands-on demonstration on how to create an account and start using Planboard.
Lindsey will be receiving a free Planboard t-shirt from Mr. Srinivas to wear the day of the trade show. This is an excellent example of how students can connect with and learn from industry professionals. Great job Lindsey! Excited to give Planboard a try!
