  4. 4. Results by item
  5. 22. Respondent comments
  6. 23. CHOICE <ul><li>“ The trust relationships in plns seem stronger to me because they are self selected. I can opt in or opt out of the relationship---something I can't do in school.” </li></ul>
  7. 24. CHOICE <ul><li>“ You *choose* those that you invite into your PLN - and I assume you have chosen wisely. Those who are *assigned* to work in your same facility are not there by your choice. This parallels the difference between your circle of friends and your family, does it not?” </li></ul>
  8. 25. EQUALITY <ul><li>“ In a pln, everyone is equal and there is no leader. That equality increases the trust between pln colleagues---and the inherent lack of equality in school based relationships inhibits the development of trust.” </li></ul>
  9. 26. OPENNESS <ul><li>“ The major difference I have found is related to the openness of sharing, exploring, learning/relearning, and willingness to think out loud through blogs, tweets, podcasts and webcasts, sometimes at great risk professionally through my PLNs.” </li></ul>
  10. 27. DIVERSITY <ul><li>“ My PLN encompasses more diverse people/jobs/outlooks than contacts in my school district.” </li></ul>
  11. 28. LEARNING <ul><li>“ It is refreshing and energizing to be an active contributor in many professional social networks, and I learn something new every day!” </li></ul>
  12. 29. LEARNING <ul><li>“ I couldn't say the same about my experience in my own school/university. Over the years attitudes have become very status quo and a reluctance by educators to consider themselves life-long learners beyond their &quot;work hours&quot; has been quite common.” </li></ul>
