    Planning the design, format, and implementation of this personal learning network (PLN) has been one of the most beneficial activities that I have encountered while working on the M. Ed. program through Ashland University. As soon as I was informed of my role with our district’s new community professional development/communication opportunity, Parent University, I knew that the development of a wiki concentrating on gifted education would be an important communication tool.
    I have many goals built into the construction of this wiki. Professionally I have set a communication goal due to the number of questions and misinformation generated within my district with respect to gifted services. Parents, staff, administrators, and other community members contact me weekly asking a variety of questions. This gifted services and resources wiki will be an important source for accurate, timely information. This wiki can also be an additional layer of support that community members need.
