Building Your Online PLN

Download to read offline

This workshop will help you develop a Personal Learning Network (PLN), connecting you with digital resources, learning spaces, and colleagues around the globe. After a brief introduction, you’ll decide when, where, what, and how you’d like to learn, and begin to develop connections to fellow educators and resources to support your learning. In this session, you might explore tools to organize and share digital resources (e.g. Evernote, social bookmarking), social networks and communities with resources for educators (e.g. Twitter, Pinterest), websites and apps for the classroom (e.g. educational podcasts), and/or virtual courses (e.g. webinars, MOOCs, online tutorials).
