Many members come to our community because someone – a friend or coworker perhaps – tells them about all the great stuff going on in Teachers Engage. This expands personal learning networks, both in terms of an individual’s connections and the size of the networks in which those individuals participate. The goal of this game is to get a representation of how those networks, or Family Trees, have evolved in Engage.
To play, think of the person who turned you on to the Teachers Engage community. In your reply to this thread, identify the community member that first got you to join by telling the origin story and Mentioning that member using the @ symbol. We’ll reward the largest Family Tree and the member who has the largest number of Mentions; the prizes will be revealed after the official game kickoff tonight.
Update: The prizes for this thread are: a $100 Amazon E Certificate for the leader of the largest family tree, and a cool piece of Intel Swag for the each family member.

Vanessa Jones was the person who introduced me to the Teachers Engage Community. My first experience was as part of our TechnoScientist group with Austin, ISD. Then, I was able to participate in other activities, discussions, etc.. that the Engage community has to offer. Thanks, Vanessa!
Bushra Saeed was the person who introduced me with the magical engage community. My first experience with her was "Essentials Online".
My first group was "Essentials in Lahore". It was quite excited rather proud at that time as the Group Overview contained my picture . After sometime I extended my flight and became member of other groups and started participation in forum discussions.
WOW, its great to again passing through the corridors of past. Old memories refreshed
I too took my first Intel TWT class from Glen Westbroek. (You owe me big for that mention Glen! ). It's been all uphill since then!
Glen Westbroek was the one who introduced me to Teachers Engage. He came into my class and walked me through getting signed up. It has been great too. Love getting so many ideas from teachers all over.
Linda Hunter first introduced me to the Teachers Engage community. She continues to remind me to check out the great ideas, content and collaboration opportunities provided here. Thanks Linda!
