Why build a Personal Learning Network?

Why build a Personal Learning Network? | innovation in learning |
Time spent developing your Personal Learning Network is time well spent but it does take time. The danger busy teachers face is in becoming so engrossed in dealing with the day to day business of teaching that we make poor choices when it comes to time spent on our personal learning. We manage to find time for our students, for phone calls home, for report writing and programming all the while letting our engagement with learning slip down the list of things to do. Ensuring your personal learning is a priority is essential and should be seen against the value it brings to your students; enhance your teaching and you enhance their learning.


Munro, Hopkins and Craig recognise this when they state ‘Student outcomes depend on the teaching in the school, its pedagogic capital’. For you, your school and most importantly your students time invested in building a Personal Learning Network is time spent developing your pedagogic capital.

A great article ensuring that Educators make time to continually invest time into their own learning practices. Information is always changing, being updated,  being expanded, or being debated, so educators need to be aware of these adjustments. By analysing their knowledge and beliefs on certain topics and researching other perspectives educators will show growth and critical thinking in their own learning strategies.

I see teaching and learning as two sides on the same coin. I learn by teaching, and (ironically?) I teach about learning. Here's a clever infographic from Bernard Bull that helps grasp the elements of personal learning/teaching networks  'visually".

What is a Personal Learning Network (PLN)?  A Personal Learning Network (PLN) is an informal learning network of professionals, industry thought-leaders or organizations. Building a PLN allows one to connect with others who create, curate and/or share valuable information with the intent to educate others in their community. PLNs allow two or more people, who might not know one another personally, to come together to exchange information.

Connect, Share, Communicate this is how "Personal Learning Network" is defined. But if the point is to be in touch with people, is it accurate to use the word "Personal" ?

If you didn't attend my presentation last night, here is an article that discusses the topic of creating your own Personal Learning Network-your own support system.
