Why Classroom 2.0?

PLN Step 9 why I joined

I am now a member of classroom 2.0. I joined the instructional technology group because it is similar to the class I am taking. I think it is very interesting to see other people who are doing things like I am. I am not a part of any other networking groups, but I think this will be a good start to it. I am interested to learn more about it in the future. I am also interested to find more connections through this website.

It is a way to connect with others that you wouldn't normally connect with otherwise.
