Blog Post #5 Part 1

socail media heart What is a Personal Learning Network? A personal learning network is a way to describe the people or sometimes organization that you connect with in order to learn from their ideas, questions, reflections, and references. Its personal because you choose who you want to be in your group. Its also about learning you choose what subject or what content area you want to learn and choose people who have that same interest. Most people have a personal learning network and don't even know it. If you have accounts with Twitter, Facebook, Skype, A personal blog, ETC; then you have your own personal learning network. As a future educator, I would encourage young children to start creating their personal learning networks now and continue to add to it as they get older. Personal Learning Networks are very useful to classes that are project based. Students use online sources when creating different projects to help locate knowledge and skills.

  1. Hey Allison! I really love the picture that you used for this post! I really like how you described what a PLN is and how it is a good idea to get students to think about their personal learning networks at a young age.
