Hoping To Create Some Networked Students

As we embark on the first semester of the first web 2.0 class ever offered at Burlington High School, we are excited to help our students discover what it means to be connected as they establish their own social networks. It will be interesting to see and hear their insights as we learn together over the next few months. Check out the great video below about what a networked student looks like.


  1. Great video. You put in a lot of time and effort. This generation of students is very lucky. I really wish that I could turn back the clock and be a high school student in this 21st century. They'll really be prepared for the real world.

  2. G'day Mr Larkin and students,
    Thanks for joining the student blogging challenge. I hope you enjoy the activities and make new friends by reading and commenting on blogs from classes and students around the world.

    PS Not all younger students have a Google account, so could you please have Name/URL as an option when leaving a comment.

  3. We have started round two of our Media 21 cohort this year at Creekview HS/The Unquiet Library. You might be interested in our students' responses to this video as well as "Welcome to my PLE" that they shared at the beginning of 2010-11 in August at http://connectwithmedia21.wordpress.com/2010/08/05/connected-learners-and-networked-students/.

    You might also be interested in my archive of our work and reflections from 2010-11, including a comprehensive write-up of the journey of implementing this kind of project of helping students establish PLEs/PLNs at http://theunquietlibrarian.wikispaces.com/media21capstone-buffy. I'm happy to collaborate with any teachers or librarians in your school who are working with students on this effort.

  4. Great video. The end of the video had one of the best descriptions of a teacher for the 21st century I have seen.

    Well done.
