Why build a Personal Learning Network?

Why build a Personal Learning Network? | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it
Blogging on a regular basis has helped me understand what I do as a teacher. It has expanded my understanding of learning, forced me to read more widely about education as I search for ideas that may evolve into posts and added a new dimension to my reflective practice. Regular writing with an audience in mind has provided insight to the process of writing that I have shared with my students and the blog has become a resource I call upon when sharing ideas and planning with colleagues.

Bon article. Il est important que chaque enseignant ait aussi son propre réseau d'apprentissage. Aussi l'importance du blogging est mis en évidence. Cela permet de discuter au-delà de ses collègues directs.
