C's default mode of discovery,

personal learning networks
(PLN). In the economy of
tomorrow, an individual’s PLN is
more valuable than job history
or referees. it's the new CV or
résumé - a map of who you are
and what you know.
The most effective individual
learning tool today is the
personal learning network
(PLN): an informal microsweb
of personal and professional
contacts, created and sustained
through social media.
The networked learner asks
their PLN for guidance, advice
or a quick-fix.
The network responds
with solutions drawn from
their breadth of individual
experience: enabled by social
technologies, but sustained by
mutual need and the powerful
incentives of group recognition.
The power of the PLN can
also be unleashed inside the
boundaries of the organisation.
This soft learning style delivers hard results: social technologies
reduce time spent searching for people and company
information by 35%.
