For the "Connections with Others" category, I feel as though I deserve 3 points. Throughout the semester, I have been replying to tweets that others have sent to me, reading and commenting on the blogs of other students, and retweeting things that I feel would be beneficial to other pre-service teachers. In my retweets though, I didn't add many of my own thoughts.
In the "Ideas Shared" category, I feel as though I earned 4 points. I worked hard to tweet resources and ideas dealing with physical education, a topic I am passionate about. Many of my posts were on course content. Also, I used my blog to share my thoughts on building multiple different areas involving education.
In the "Resources Shared" category, I feel as though I earned 4 points. This was an area that I was really passionate about when building my PLN. I used websites like Pinterest, YouTube, ect. to send resources to classmates. These resources were sent via Twitter and in my blog posts.
For the "Personal Application" category, I feel as though I deserve the full 4 points. During the course of the semester, I went from not having a Twitter or a blog to using one frequently. I have used my PLN to gather ideas which I have incorporated into my teacher work sample for next semester. My blog post: Establishing a Personal Learning Network is one of my best examples of how my PLN has had a positive effect on me.
