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.

Fanny Figols's curator insight, February 16, 3:18 AM

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.

Nice visual shared by Susan Bainbridge illustrating different aspects a teacher should be building to represent themselves as learners.  I would go one step further and say students should be following the same structure.

Many in our class are not so sure of the value of twitter.  This gave me some more insight into PLNing.

Eileen Forsyth's curator insight, January 27, 2014 10:08 PM

Being an introvert, this has always nagged subconsciously. Shouldn't we learn to manage our own knowledge before we learn to share it?

Annie M Herbert's curator insight, January 28, 2014 8:11 AM

Makes me realize that I need to create other topic areas and curate to them.

Twitter For Learning

Twitter For Learning | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

The Pope is now on twitter! The first tweet from the summit of Mt Everest also happened recently.


News no longer breaks, it tweets.


In the best case scenario, Twitter is a great vehicle for connecting, sharing resources, and personal and professional learning. The key is separating the good from the bad.

Relationships: Who needs them?

Relationships: Who needs them? | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

I have been thinking lately about professional relationships and what role they play in how we learn as professionals, and as people. It would be difficult to learn much in total isolation. 

.

 

The big picture of this can be overwhelming to a novice. It is a mindset change that requires understanding the culture of connectedness before a real immersion can take place. Educators need a basic knowledge of digital literacy to get started. This will quickly, and very painlessly grow with continued connectedness. There are several connected communities to help educators get started.

.

The Educator’s PLN is a start. www.edupln.com.

.

Twitter is probably the best way to experience the need and benefit to connectedness in developing both professional and personal relationships with other educators. Remember that in a group of like-minded people, as smart as any individual is, the group is always smarter. Of course, if you are reading this online, you are probably already connected and all of this makes sense, since you have already drunk the Kool-aid. Please print it out and share with an unconnected colleague.

Rebecca Haas's curator insight, February 19, 2014 1:35 PM

This article makes a lot of valid points that can be used in every day on twitter, and in life in general! First impressions are as important on Twitter, and I think that is something many young professionals may overlook in interview and online. Also, I think many people follow their friends on Twitter, even if they are unrelated to their professional career, which can crowd their feed with social related things, rather than tweets related to education. This article also shows that it is possible to use your tweets outside of the Twitter realm, just by presenting your tweets on other social media sites! This seems to be a great checklist for the young professional, helping us utilize a site we most likely already frequent, but enabling us to turn it into a career-helping venue.

"We need different, not better..."

"We need different, not better..." | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

* We don’t need better assessments; we need different assessments that help us understand students as learners and constructors of their own ongoing education instead of knowers of information and narrow skills.
* We don’t need better teachers; we need different teachers who see their roles as master learners first and content guides or experts second.
* We don’t need better schools; we need different schools that function as communities of inquiry and learning instead of delivery systems for a highly proscribed, traditional curriculum.

 

… the idea of a fully networked, progressive learning environment would for the vast majority constitute *different* and would require us... to redefine the future.
