What is a PLN?

PLN is an acronym for Personal Learning Network – a powerful collection of people, ideas, and personas that fuel your passion for teaching and learning. This network consist of friends and colleagues of course, but with modern technology and the use of social media your network can stretch to include celebrities, professionals and inspiring minds from across the globe. You can harness you network anytime to provide help, inspiration, advice, a sounding board, a sympathetic ear, or even a safety net for when you need extra support and encouragement. Pretty handy, right?

If you are new to PLNs and you want to learn more about becoming a connected educator, make plans to join the twitter chat this Sunday.

We guarantee you’ll find some new people to follow and your PLN will be growing in no time!
