  • ‘Learning Spaces’ concept from here:
    Related to ‘Thinning Walls” By Alec:
    Response to #2. What are the implications of PLEs/PLNs on traditional modes/structures of education? (Related to #6 too)

  • This is one of my favourite characteristics of a healthy community, and it certainly applies to PLNs. Members of a PLN need to empathize with another person enough to actually be willing to contribute something to them. Forgiveness comes in when someone unintentionally offends someone else in the network – something that is all too easy to have happen. A healthy PLN will be willing to forgive and move on.

  • Hospitality is more than being nice to each other – although it certainly implies that. It includes taking care of someone else—inviting them into a part of your life and looking after them while they’re there. PLNs look after each other.
