Why (And How) You Should Create A Personal Learning Network

Why (And How) You Should Create A Personal Learning Network | Librarian Stone Soup | Scoop.it

What Is A PLN?
Through the use of my own Personal Learning Network (PLN), I came across several great examples that both define what a PLN is, and explain the value of creating one for yourself. According to a wikispace about creating PLNs,

“Personal Learning Networks are systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to:

1) set their own learning goals

2) manage their learning; managing both content and process

3) communicate with others in the process of learning and thereby achieve learning goals

Simply put: A PLN is a system for lifelong learning.”

Adam Fullerton's insight:

Personal Learning Networks are huge in my opinion and so personal knowledge management systems. These two concepts have become essential in the digital world and it means that librarians not only need to be familiar with this, but that we should be the experts on training and teaching others on how to manage information.

Adam Fullerton's insight:

Lots of good information for current and future librarians on hwo to best prepare for your profession.

 

One of my favorite things I remember from Library Science 101 as an undergrad is "If you are going to be a librarian because you like books, you should leave now."

News: The Hyperlinked Library MOOC Fall 2013 Announced

News: The Hyperlinked Library MOOC Fall 2013 Announced | Librarian Stone Soup | Scoop.it

In an effort to share insight regarding some of the latest trends in the information profession with individuals from across the globe, the San José State University School of Library and Information Science (SJSU SLIS) will be offering a massive open online course (MOOC) in the fall.

 

The open online course will bring individuals from diverse backgrounds and geographic regions together in an interactive online learning environment. SJSU SLIS award-winning instructors will spearhead this professional development opportunity. The MOOC is available to the public for free, and anyone can register. MOOC students will not receive college credit.

 

The information school’s first open online course, the Hyperlinked Library MOOC, will begin September 3, 2013, and it explores how libraries are using emerging technologies to serve their communities.

 

The term “Hyperlinked Library” describes how our connected world is transforming 21stCentury libraries into participatory, playful, and user-centered spaces while upholding traditional values. It encompasses both physical and virtual space, as well as many types of libraries.
