Preaching tO The converted?
Can you help me?
I have my own blog
I love twitter
I Diigo daily
I am a ning addict
I believe in viral cpd (vpd)
Characteristics of VPD:
Self access, independent learning, using the technology largely on your own and with the support from a few colleagues. A few early adopters are needed, enthusiastic about learning, willing to test out the new technology and to share their knowledge, experiences, and resources. Develop external networking as there is no other way you can really keep up with the technology. My main networking sources for languages include Twitter, Talkabout Primary mfl, my Resources for Languages Diigo group, mflresources yahoo group.
But why won’t they see what I see?
