The Internet now connects us in unprecedented ways. We have access to tools will allow us to build global learning networks where we can pursue our intellectual and creative passions with people around the world. As educators, these networked opportunities present a very big challenge. To prepare students to flourish in this new learning world, schools will need to transform themselves in important ways. Personal Learning Networks: Using the Power of Connections to Transform Education is a road map to follow down the path to that transformation. In order to bring these learning networks into classrooms, teachers must first create learning networks of their own. Authors Will Richardson and Rob Mancabelli describe a bottom-up progression that can fundamentally change the way schools operate: ¿ Understanding the power of these networks ¿ Becoming a networked individual ¿ Implementing a networked classroom ¿ Becoming a networked school Using step-by-step advice and real-world stories, this book aims to narrow the technological divide, put educators on the same footing as students, and provide a recipe for incorporating these tools into every classroom.

Will Richardson is an internationally known "evangelist" for the use of Weblogs, RSS, and related Internet technologies in classrooms and schools. A classroom teacher for more than 20 years, he has integrated these technologies into his curricula and has spoken to thousands of educators on the merits of "The Read/Write Web." In various Weblog projects, his students have collaborated with best-selling authors, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, and students in classrooms from around the world. One of the first educator bloggers, Richardson's Weblog at www.weblogg-ed.com has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Times, Syllabus (now Campus Technology), and other publications, and is a primary resource for the creation and implementation of Weblog technologies on the K-12 level. His articles have appeared in journals including Educational Leadership, English Journal, and Principal Leadership, and he has presented and given workshops about Weblogs, RSS, and other technologies at national conventions such as NECC, ASCD, Journalism Education Association, and many others. He is also a featured blogger at Ed Tech Insider (www.eschoolnews.com/eti) and is a regular on the biweekly "Ed Tech Coast to Coast Podcast" (www.edtechcoasttocoast.com). Richardson is currently the supervisor of instructional technology and communications at Hunterdon Central Regional High School in Flemington, NJ, where he also oversees a Weblog program of more than 400 sites.
