As we all know, education is constantly in a state of flux. There are new standards, new technologies, and best teaching practices are always evolving. We are living in the Information Age. Why read a book on technology when that book will likely be outdated by the time it hits the shelves? The Internet gives us immediate access to the most updated information available...and it's free.

Google+ Building (or Re-Building) your PLN | EdReach | Best PLN | Scoop.it

Twitter just became 5 years old and many of us can remember the first time: we heard of twitter… the first time we experienced powerful collaboration on twitter… some of us can even remember our first tweet (not me, though I can imagine it was something like: “I just don’t understand this…” So, for many it feels like a shock when after 5 years, thousands of tweets, hours of growing and grooming our personal learning network we look at Google+ and say, “I just don’t understand this…” or “Struggling to understand how this is going to fit in…” or “It just doesn’t do what Facebook or twitter does… or doesn’t do it as WELL…”

Rebecca Haas's curator insight, February 19, 2014 1:40 PM

This article certainly helped me to understand the basics of a PLN and how it can pertain to my college career. The author also focuses on online class, which is something I am partaking in for the first time this semester. I never thought about how I could use my PLN to greater my understanding if other aspects of my life, particularly my online class, although I can now see how using outside resources could be beneficial.

A Simple Comprehensive Guide on The use of Personal Learning Networks in Education | Best PLN | Scoop.it

Personal Learning Networks, or PLNs, have been around for a long time. Originally they were your family, relatives and friends, or probably other educators and fellow teachers you work with in the same institution, but now and thanks to the development of web technologies and wireless connections, the concept of PLNs has been expanded to engulf people you have never met before in real world. Much of the learning nowadays takes place online and via a network of interconnected relations.
