This concept of a PLN has been around for many years. What has changed in recent years though is the reach, the size and the availability of that network. Your PLN is no longer tied to your zip code and you no longer work in isolation. Collaboration no longer just means to work with a colleague in your building. You are able to connect to educators from around the world who are ready and willing to teach beyond the walls of their own classroom.
Your PLN is customized as:
• it filters the vast information available and pushes what interests you
• you choose who is part of your network
• you decide when and how to access and use it
Learning how to build your own PLN is:
• a 21st century skill
• learning about tools that enable your to make these connections
• being in charge of your own Professional Development
• connecting to educators who will contribute to your learning
• extending your learning
• receiving “just in time” learning and help
• becoming globally aware
• sharing your own best practices
• experiencing the power of 21st century learning for yourself
• filtering through “too much” available information
