Building a Professional Learning Network
Building a professional learning network (PLN) might seem challenging, vague, or even a little silly. However, for many teachers (myself included) it has become their "go-to" source for professional development. The great thing about a professional learning network is that there is no "wrong way" to do it. You can choose to explore Twitter, post blog comments, use an RSS feeder, or combine some elements as desired. The recipe of resources is really up to you. I find myself empowered and excited by the learning that I experience through my professional learning network. As we embark a a summer of rest, I challenge you to engage yourself in a professional learning community. You will not regret it! Please list your thoughts on the concept of a PLN and ideas/tools that you hope to explore over the summer. Thank you for your participation today!
