Personal Learning Networks

Posted on Wednesday, January 15th, 2014 at 1:50 pm

I have been reading tweets from David Hopkins, @hopkinsdavid, a learning technologist (I have yet to pin down that job description!) While scanning his tweets, I ran across an article which highlights of building a PLN through social media. The article describes levels of participation building a PLN; from Inactives and Spectators to Conversationalists and Creators, the article notes that a PLN is only as effective as your participation level!

    I know it seems like more on your plate, but trust me – if you can even devote 15 minutes a day to scanning resources in your personal network, in the end, you will end up saving yourself hours and hours of research time, your students will be thrilled with all of the new engaging ideas you bring to them, and you will develop rich relationships that would not otherwise be possible –even with the experts. Added bonus: you have a better understanding of what it means to learn in this environment. Our kids know about it – I think it is essential their teachers know too. 🙂
