7th Grade PLE

This student did an amazing job with organizing her personal learning environment. I am very impressed that her science class is paperless. I couldn’t believe that her class is mostly internet based. She did a great job on keeping her class work and projects organized. With using the internet as the main educational tool, it teaches the students to learn self-discipline.

She explained how sites such as face book, were on the top of her personal page and schoolwork is across the bottom of the page. My PLN does not compare in any way to her PLE. One day I would like to create a personal page of my own for my PLN. It would be a great way to stay organized and also, make communicating to others a lot easier.

Two Questions That Can Change Your Life

I thought this was an interesting video. I think having a sentence of your own is great way to stay motivated throughout the day! It allows you to have some kind of purpose as you go about your day. The question; “Was I better today than yesterday?” Is a thought I know I personally think about every day. I always try to have a positive outlook on how I want to live each day. Whether it may be learning something new or helping others.

My sentence would be simple but meaningful. Never give up! When I started back school this semester, I thought there was no way I could do this class. I stayed focused and always made sure that I was learning something new about it every day. Dropping a class because of lack of confidence will never be a question again.


  1. Excellent idea Crystal. I think you should create your own page using Symbaloo.

    I like your sentence. Sometimes gathering up the strength to carry on especially after a major set back is the hardest thing we do in life. One of my favorite saying is, "keep on keepin on." Asking that second question before you go to sleep at night really helps to.

    Your blog is looking great! Keep up the good work. SS

  2. I like your sentence. I, too, found that video very enlightening. It is always good to read such positive posts. I think you should stick to your sentence and "Never give up!" This class is not that hard. It seems like you have a plan that is working, so stick with it. Your blog looks great!
