23 Things 6: PLN

PLN’s! I love my Personal Learning Network. I am often isolated by subject, schedule, and space here at school and I feel connected through my PLN. I use several things to stay connected.

First, Twitter! I have found more interesting tools, tips, articles, and resources from my PLN on twitter than any other of my PLN sources. Likewise, I am a NING-nut.  Despite the fact that NING has changed its tune and become a pay for service organization, I’m pleased to be a member of several alive and kicking groups.

I also read a random sampling of blogs by music teachers, technology teachers, and other amazing teacher-types that provide sources of inspiration, commiseration, and guidance.  There are people who I admire tremendously who have no idea who I am and have no idea their positive impact on my professional development. I met them through PLN connections and I’m grateful!

Wanna be PLN mates?

Follow my blog in a google reader, follow me on Twitter, come hang out with me in one of the social networks above. We’ll collab and learn together!

    Sarah, your blog is incredible!….so unless I’m missing something along the way, a PLN is just a version of an online PLC…so we can have our own PLC and PLN in one at school!
