VLN Groups: Tip of the week: Groups

There are many groups here on the VLN, but if you find and join your favourites they’ll become your touchstones. To find them easily:

  • join a group, then 
  • add it to your favourites, and 
  • make sure you have the Groups widget on your dashboard. All your favourites will appear first.



e-Learning on the Wire…

The Wire is the micro-blogging stream in the VLN…Here’s what we heard:

  • samcunnane: Fun times simultaneously learning to use this VLN, teaching others how to use it, and discussing the new Level 2 standards.
  • Tessa Gray: Anyone familiar with working with Y9/Y10 students with inquiry learning? We'd love to hear from you @ http://fizurl.com/inquiry
