A thing I have found interesting to write a blog post on is Formspring. I don't think that Formspring has any good sources for learning. Most students make an account and make fun of another person on their wall and make it anonymous.
I have just seen Sir Ken Robinson on his Youtube Channel. I do agree with his thoughts and how he explains how he wants to change the way kids learn in school. I wish the video wasn't so long and it had very boring parts but overall it was good!
I think that students have problems with self directed-learning beacuse they don't want to do the work and are lazy to even bother. Most students need to be watched most of the time to really get work done.
In the Bhs web 2.0 we are making our own PLN. I would like to make mine on Football because that is what I love. We have been connecting with teachers from different states. I hope we can skype a little bit more.
