  • how has a pln helped me grow as a librarian?
  • anytime, anywhere learning
  • build and customize your network and content
  • gain multiple perspectives from many diverse voices
  • share and discover ideas while networking with others
  • stay on the cutting edge of future trends for today’s libraries
  • collective construction of knowledge
  • stages of pln adoption
    stage 1 immersion:
    immerse yourself into networks.
    create any and all networks you can find where there are people and ideas to connect to.
    collaboration and connections take off

  • stages of pln adoption
    stage 2 evaluation:
    evaluate your networks and start to focus in on which networks you really want to focus your time on
    you begin feeling a sense of urgency and try to figure out a way to “know it all”

  • stages of pln adoption
    stage 3 “know it all”:
    find that you are spending many hours trying to learn everything you can
    realize there is much you do not know and feel like you can’t disconnect
    this usually comes with spending every waking minutes trying to be connected to the point that you give up sleep and contact with others around you to be connected to your networks of knowledge

  • stages of pln adoption
    stage 4 perspective:
    start to put your life into perspective
    usually comes when you are forced to leave the network for awhile and spend time with family and friends who are not connected

  • stages of pln adoption
    stage 5 balance:
    try and find that balance between learning and living
    understanding that you can not know it all, and begin to understand that you can rely on your network to learn and store knowledge for you
    a sense of calm begins as you understand that you can learn when you need to learn and you do not need to know it all right now
