In Good Company: Thanks Zaid Learn and Everyone Create a Personnel Learning Network

This weekend I got a nice little piece of news when Zaid Ali Alsagoff sent me an email letting me know I had been named on his list of his "TOP 10 LEARNING SITES FOR PERSONAL LEARNING" now this is an honor because Zaid does some amazing work on this blog, especially in terms of visuals.

I am flattered to be included as the list includes the TED Talks(see an inspiring one below), Tony Karrer's eLearningLearning, Jane Hart and Stephen Downes among others.

But the point Zaid is making is that there are thousands of learning opportunities available for free on the web and many educators don't take advantage of those opportunities. He is encouraging everyone to create their own Top Ten List that helps them become better at their subject matter, with web skills or any area in which they desire. I could not agree more.

The web is a wonderful educational tool and, to be honest, the list of 10 is just the tip of the iceberg, there are wonderful, wonderful resource available all over the web that educators, trainers and developers need leverage.

In fact, Christy Tucker in a posting Instructional Design and E-Learning Blogs has listed over a dozen but the point is not to merely copy or mimic what others are doing, instead, create your own Personal Learning List and actively use it to learn!




Of course, I always have my younger son to keep my feet on the ground, he told me the other day, "you are not funny and your jokes are lame." Nothing can top that:)

Thanks for the mention :)

Just wondering, what are your favorite sites (say 5 to 10 sites) to get us started with 3D learning and learning games?

Now, that would be a cool post (perhaps you have done it previously) :)

Have a great day sharing :)

Cheers!
