The Personal Learning Network

I emphasize the importance of making and using a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) the very first day of class. I use the “Web 2.0 and Your Own Learning Development” video by Steven Downes. Now I can add PLN Yourself by Sue Waters aka The Edublogger.

From PLN Yourself:
“Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) are all about using web tools such as blogs, wiki, twitter, facebook to create connects with others which extend our learning, increases our reflection while enabling us to learn together as part of a global community. PLNs increase our opportunities to ask questions and receive help compared to our normal daily face-to-face interactions.”

Now required reading for Day 1. Thank you Sue Waters!
