    • Building a Personal Learning Network
    • The Lightening Bug Theory of PLNs
      I think of my PLN as a jar of lightning bugs. Each bug flashes occasionally, giving light. If I collect enough lightning bugs who are bright, soon the light is constant and I can find my way forward, even in the dark
      -Kevin Honeycutt

    • Build a PLN using:
      Twitter
      Social Bookmarking
      Blogs

      More importantly, with the use a link to shorten a URL (bit.ly or tinyurl.com) you can add links as well!
