Building Your Personal Learning Network “Networking”byjairoaguaislicensedunderCCBY-NC-SA2.0 Raphaella Dixon Lester B. Pearson School Board, March 17, 2014

A Few Questions • Are up-to-date in your profession? • Do you have time to attend workshops and conferences? • Do you have enough funding for PD? • Is the PD you receive relevant to your needs?

“The entire collection of people with whom you engage and exchange information, usually online.” (Klingensmith) Personal Learning Network

Why Build Your PLN? • Librarians often work solo • Distance and geography • New trends and issues • Lack of PD opportunities • Lack of funds for PD (Harland)
