A Simple Comprehensive Guide on The use of Personal Learning Networks in Education

A Simple Comprehensive Guide on The use of Personal Learning Networks in Education | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Much of the learning nowadays takes place online and via a network of interconnected relations.
