  • Will Richardson defines personal learning networks (PLN) as “the collection of people with whom youengage and exchange information. They are the group of people who contribute to your knowledgeand understanding of topics in your field and beyond.” (www.nercomp.org/data/media/PLNTraining_OutlineWIT.pdf) He explains, “Personal Learning Networks extend your learning through increasedreflection, while enabling you to learn as part of a global community. That’s not to say thatface-to-face learning isn’t important or valuable. It is. But so is the learning we can now do on theWeb.
  • At its simplest, situated learning is learning that takes place in the same context in which it is applied the term is coined by Lave and Wenger (1991)
