In the classroom, I have been sharing with students the importance of developing a Personal Learning Network to learn from peer and colleagues in their future occupation. Students can also reap the benefits of tapping into their PLNs. Here is a wonderful video called “The Networked Student” that shows how on-line networking can enhance students’ 21st century skills.
Also I have presented workshops for other teachers about PLN. Sometimes these are also called Professional Learning Networks. Over the last year, I have benefited from the wealth of knowledge and experience of those in my PLN. For educators, I have included a Voice Thread recording of other educators discussing their PLN.
