  • Books are selected to be in the spotlight, initially, from being recommended, then those books are shared on the ‘Books Recommended By PLN Friends’ page. From this page they are included in one of the three surveys that take place during a year. Thousands of educators use their voice and choice to select the books that receive the most votes. These become the focus books. ALL books that have been recommended are considered front-runners!
  • There are Summer Learning opportunities
  • #COVID-19/#remotelearning resources. These are all free and educators from all over the world have used this web page to locate just the right resource to use with students. They were all grabbed from tweets that stellar educators made on Twitter.

  • Twitter Hashtag Search device is also included. This allows educators to quickly fill in a form with one or two words and locate a chat they would like to participate in. They can search by the hashtag and find out when a chat takes place, a day of the week, specific time of day, or if they use keywords by subject (i.e. math).
