Develop your Professional Learning Network with Social Media

This document discusses professional learning networks (PLNs) and how to develop one using social media. It defines a PLN as a teacher-driven global support network that decreases isolation. The benefits of a PLN include accessing ongoing learning, forming connections with others, and deriving competence from those connections. It recommends starting with platforms like Diigo, Twitter, Facebook, or blogging to connect with others, share resources and ideas, and gain different perspectives. Mobile apps allow sharing on the go. The document compares features of different tools and encourages growing one's PLN to continue learning and take advantage of opportunities to connect with others.

We can no longer personally
experience and acquire all
the learning that we need.
We derive our competence
from forming connections.
Are PLN’s based in research?

Editor's Notes

  1. Siemens, in 2004, outlined his theory of Connectivism, which is a theory of learning that moves from within the individual, where traditional learning theories such as constructivism and behaviourism, and explores the act of making connections between various data sets or sites of knowledge or information. He suggests that learning resides in diversity of opinions, and that it may reside in places other than humans (i.e. within computer networks such as the internet). Connectivism is a learning theory for the digital age, as it suggests that the capacity to know is more critical than what is currently known, and that the ability to make and maintain connections (between people, ideas, concepts etc) is a major purpose of learning.
