From Information to Knowledge

Posted by Nik Peachey

This posting is to follow up an online presentation I gave on Friday 6th November 09 for AVEALMEC at the Social Networking - Thriving as a Community of Practice online conference.

The title of my presentation was 'from Information to Knowledge' and during the presentation I tried to look at a range of online tools and show how they could be used to help teachers tap into the vast amount of information being generated online, find useful sources, capture resources from those sources and use them to develop their teaching knowledge and their personal learning network (PLN)

You can access a recording of the presentation here:

To support the presentation I also created a 23 page booklet, with some 'How to' type instructions for setting up and using the tools, as well as some recommendations for useful communities for teachers to join and people to follow on twitter. You can read or download the booklet here.

From Information to Knowledge

I hope you find this useful and do feel free to share it.

How about you?
  • How do you build your personal learning network?
  • What tools to you use to capture information from the Internet?
  • How do you cope with the vast flow of information being created?
  • How do you keep up with the rate of change in the educational profession?

Please leave a comment.
