As lifelong learners we need to model what good PLCs look like, and be transparent with our students. For example, when I use an app in class for the first time I will tell my students he source of the find, which is almost inevitably my PLC. I then follow it up with something like, "You already have a PLC, your study group. Regardless of your profession, seek out peers and coaches to make you better."
