Teachers in our district, especially freshmen teachers, have a ton on their plates this year. Between the new curriculum and teaching a classroom full of freshmen with laptops, our staff is swamped! That is exactly the reason why starting a PLN today is a good idea. A lot of people might feel that they donít have time to take on one more thing right now, but developing a PLN will actually make things easier for teachers in the long run.

Building Your Personal Learning Network http://www.tobincls.com/learningnetwork.htm Building Your Personal Learning Network
While many companies promise that every employee will receive one or two weeks of training per year, learning should take place every day on the job. Learning doesn't take place just in training programs, but should be part of every employee's everyday activities. You learn every time you read a book or article, every time you observe how someone else is doing work similar to your own, every time you ask a question. An important part of learning is to build your own personal learning network -- a group of people who can guide your learning, point you to learning opportunities, answer your questions, and give you the benefit of their own knowledge and experience.
I often use the following four-stage learning model to describe how we learn.

History of personal learning environments http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_personal_learning_environments History of personal learning environments "Personal Learning Environments are systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning.

Personal Learning Network PLN (Chris Smith) http://www.shambles.net/csmith/PLN/ This page visualises the Personal Learning Network of Chris Smith (Shamblesguru Voom in Second Life)
With growth of the internet, technology and especially with web 2.0 tools it is now easier for each of us to build a unique online Personal Learning Network (PLN).
These networks often grow organically as we ourselves evolve both needs and skills ... with the increase in available information worldwide and easier access there comes a time when it's advisable to pause and reflect.
Not only is this an exercise in time management but also one related to
keeping sane under the rapid growth of information available.
With this all in mind I created this page
to identify and visualise my own PLN.
