I chose Scoop.it to begin my own Personal Learning Network. With my Scoop,it account, I am able to access a variety of media (blogs, microposts, video, etc) surrounding a topic or theme that is personal to me. I created two topics or communities to follow, one is Adapted Physical Education and the other is Adapted Physical Activity and Sports. Both are passions of mine, and are connected to my professional life as an Adapted Physical Education Teacher. The first topic allows me access to scholarly journals, news articles, blogs, and various information that I can use to enhance my own teaching activities. The other community allows me to stay informed on various sports, and more importantly athletic heroes, that I can discuss with my students in regards to real-life role models. I decided to mainly "scoop", or publish on my walls, written articles by online newspapers or scholarly journals. I wanted to start my communities with relevant information that I found to be informative, uplifting, and relatable to my teaching. I will most likely add in other types of media (video and audio), but did not find any currently that met what I was looking for.
