    • 15. FACE-TO-FACE • No matter where you are, you can find real life library friends • The best thing I’ve done for PD has been putting myself out there • Vacation library visits • I’ve emailed librarians in my area at different schools to get together for dinner, library visits, etc. • Serving with VAASL- so many more contacts (and a lot of fun!)
    • 16. PLN Dos and Don’ts 1. Don’t get overwhelmed 2. Do focus on a few good things not 500 so-so things 3. Do make some changes- I was reading blogs for 2 years before starting Twitter 4. Do think about what amount of time you have to commit 5. Do make specific plans as to when you’ll work on your PLN- Ex. I read blogs on my phone while walking my dog 6. Give back! Don’t be a lurker. You have something interesting to say. Other librarians want to hear about your experiences. Don’t just follow blogs- write one. Don’t just join Twitter, participate in a Twitter chat. Don’t wait for people to come to you, be proactive!
    • 17. Share • Who’s in your PLN? • What one thing can you do when you get back to your school to strengthen your professional learning?
