What is a PLN?

pln_earth_3-2eoou81

A PLN is a personal learning network where like-minded people join groups to discuss information about teaching content, pedagogy etc. The discussions can be face-to-face or they can be online using various websites. The websites let you converse with people all over the world which is a great way to expand your knowledge and meet new people. The discussion can be based on anything that relates to teaching from any source like books, Internet, conferences, PD’s and much more. The PLN involves talking about your experiences when researching, collaborating and discussing ways of advancing teaching practices.
These days, it is about sharing mostly on an online environment (like this) using the vast variety of information provided by the Internet.
