  6. 6. Maxims of a Personal Learning Network 1. A personal learning network (PLN) is a collection of ideational, material, and human actors that are a cause and/or consequence of one’s knowledge base, skill sets, and overall disposition. 2. An actor is any node within one’s PLN that has the potential to change and/or cause another actor to change. 3. A PLN never remains constant: it or parts of it are either growing or withering… and it never starts from nothing. 4. Understanding (metacognitively) one’s PLN can occur at one point in time and over time. 5. What usually is meant as “personalized learning” is simply understanding one’s PLN… (professional) learning is understanding one’s PLN!
