Extending my PLN

I’m a fan of using Twitter lists to extend my PLN. It’s my way of ‘people catching’. When a group organizes around a topic or event, I’ll start a new list, try to faithfully collect the twitter names of those engaging in the topic or event, and share the list out to those who are

Waiting for Dessert!

This is a response for the Ontario Extend Collaborator module to explore WHY  we should collaborate. This has a bit of a story to it, with those characters sitting at the table.
