Do you have a PLN?

PLN: Professional (or personal) Learning Network

We are lifelong learners, are we not? Think of the best ways you've learned new information: it may be a visit to another teacher's classroom, a conversation over a cup of coffeee, a grade level meeting or a particularly good article in an educational journal. All of these are an important part of our PLN. But a PLN can include so much more than that - especially with all of the great social networking tools that abound. Listed below are some additional ways to develop and even broader Professional Learning Network. Dig in and try them out: you'll be amazed at the wealth of information available to you through your own network!
