We live in an age where we need to keep up with our profession. Life is changing, the way we learn is changing – and it is changing at a rapid pace. That is where PLN or the Personal Learning Network comes in. PLN’s help you make connections, collaborate, learn, and share ideas that will make you a better teacher.
Let’s break the term PLN down:
What makes it personal is that you are connecting one on one with people around the world to answer questions that you have in your head or with discussions you want to discuss. When you make connections with people within the same field and with the same amount of enthusiasm and zest for your profession – magic happens!
A PLN is the best professional development you will have and it is available 24 hours a day. Personalized learning at its finest.
It takes time and effort to build your network but the internet makes it easier. Social media has helped build connections easier than in the past years.
