Chance favours the connected mind!

It's been a while since I posted ... so here goes a short one to get back into the swing of things.

Steven Johnson, author of "Where Good Ideas Come From", is someone new to me, and this short 4 minute clip to me gives great sway to why cultivating a PLN is so important in learning and teaching these days. We all want to have the great ideas, the creative ideas ... but if only we knew how ...

Listen to Steven as this animation gives you some good ideas about how to get those "good ideas". Think of the coffee house and the camp fire and the drinking hole ... and using your PLN and storing stuff away when you first hear/see it ... gives you some great ideas for developing your thoughts using tools that are there to help. Think Twitter, think blog, think EverNote, think RSS, think FlipBoard ...

This is a great starter for "getting started"!

"Chance favours the connected mind!" - awesome!
