“PLN is an acronym for Personal Learning Network. The acronym is relatively new, but the idea is not. Teachers have always had learning networks—people we learn from and share with. Teachers are information junkies. We’re also social. Put the two together and you have a personal learning network.” –BARBARA W H AT I S A P L N A N Y W AY ?

STILL NOT CONVINCED? H E R E I S W H AT S O M E T E A C H E R S H A D T O S AY W H E N A S K E D ABOUT THEIR PLN

“I have used my PLN to reshape my ever-evolving curriculum. The resources, easy access to information, and connections that I have made using Twitter alone has changed the way I view education on a global scale. It has enabled me to not only feel supported as an educator, but has allowed me to support others.” @TDuver
 Tina Duver
 Middle School Dean of Students & Middle School Science Teacher

“My PLN re-ignited my passion for
 teaching and learning.” @ACFirstGrade Kasandra Stark First Grade Teacher

“My PLN has meant that without very much effort, I have help at my fingertips.  If I want more information about anything, I can get it instantaneously, tailored for my specific needs, and there are actual people attached to the information that I could/have/will call if I need help understanding any of it.” @RyanMBurke
 Ryan Burke
 Head of Middle School
