What is a PLN? "Personal Learning Environments are systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to •set their own learning goals •manage their learning; managing both content and process •communicate with others in the process of learning and thereby achieve learning goals. A PLE may be composed of one or more subsystems: As such it may be a desktop application, or composed of one or more web-based services."Personal Learning Network Professional Learning NetworkProfessional Learning Environment van Harmelen, Mark (August 2006).

Stages of PLN Adoption• Stage 1 Immersion: – Immerse yourself into networks. – Create any and all networks you can find where there are people and ideas to connect to. – Collaboration and connections take off.
Stages of PLN Adoption• Stage 2 Evaluation: – Evaluate your networks and start to focus in on which networks you really want to focus your time on. – You begin feeling a sense of urgency and try to figure out a way to “Know it all.”
Stages of PLN Adoption• Stage 3 Know it all: – Find that you are spending many hours trying to learn everything you can. – Realize there is much you do not know and feel like you can’t disconnect. – This usually comes with spending every waking minutes trying to be connected to the point that you give up sleep and contact with others around you to be connected to your networks of knowledge.
Stages of PLN Adoption• Stage 4 Perspective: – Start to put your life into perspective. – Usually comes when you are forced to leave the network for awhile and spend time with family and friends who are not connected.
Stages of PLN Adoption• Stage 5 Balance: – Try and find that balance between learning and living. – Understanding that you can not know it all, and begin to understand that you can rely on your network to learn and store knowledge for you. – A sense of calm begins as you understand that you can learn when you need to learn and you do not need to know it all right now.
