Here is an awesome graphic on 7 degrees of connectedness created by Sylvia. The content of this graphic clicks in with what I have said about the importance of being a connected educator in an earlier post. Creating and being part of learning networks is a requisite for any professional development in the 21st century. You just can not change it. Either you climb aboard the bandwagon or become outdated.
Read these seven degrees of connectedness and try to figure out in which stage you are. I hope you are not in the lurker one.
Rodd Lucier has also a textual version of this graphic.
