Language-arts teacher Bill Ferriter describes in this blog post how educators can use technology to connect and collaborate with colleagues and create electronic versions of personal learning communities. Ferriter suggests teachers use Twitter to find like-minded peers, who can then join together in groups using other digital tools such as Skype and Google Docs to share resources and develop new lessons. Ferriter also recommends the free tool Wiggio as a one-stop service for building an electronic learning community.
