How nice to approach the new year being named one of Common Sense Media’s ten favorite digital citizenship bloggers to watch in 2014! I am in the company of some friends already in my PLN, like Jerry Blumengarten and Susan M. Bearden and also have the pleasure to discover some with whom I have yet to connect.

Here's what they said about me:

Lisa Nielsen is the director of digital literacy and citizenship at the New York City Department of Education and author of the popular Innovative Educator blog. She has a great ear for what’s happening in the educational technology landscape, and keeps readers attuned to the latest developments.
