Why not mention Scoop.it as well? Or, while you're at it and have only time for 3, skip the individual blogs as Scoop.it will aggregate them for you. Also, interesting each one of these is called a PLN. I would suggest every person has only one PLN, which comprises several social networks such as blogs.... (@pbsloep)

Reinventing libraries for 'hanging out, messing around and geeking out' - CNN

Reinventing libraries for 'hanging out, messing around and geeking out' - CNN | School Libraries | Scoop.it

Collections, staff and space dedicated to teens have existed in libraries for years. Now, libraries are shifting those resources to developing learning spaces where teens can create content instead of consume it. Research has shown the widespread positive impacts of afterschool programs on academic achievement and social behavior, especially in low-income communities. The need for spaces that engage teens becomes even greater during summer break, when teens have more free time, said Elyse Adler with the Nashville Public Library.

What is important to you in a PLN?   I like to network broadly to continuously challenge and stretch the contexts of my thinking, AND connect specifically with others in K-12 ELL, literacy and professional learning to collaborate in addressing shared challenges.

 

Thanks for being part of my network!

A beginners guide to Personal Learning Networks (PLN).

Eileen Forsyth's curator insight, January 25, 2014 9:05 AM

I can probably find a better source, but this slideshow is a reminder that students who are self-aware of the PLN they are using are more likely to make strategic choices and learn more of what they are interested in. Creating a PLN based on a specific interest or goal would make an excellent independent study.
