A Professional Learning Network (PLN) can help educators stay connected to others with similar passions and interests. The new digital landscape has opened up new avenues for these connections so that educators can connect not only to real-word colleagues, but also to colleagues in the digital world. PLNs can occur in real-time, either face-to-face or through mediums such as text messaging or Skype. Of course the digital world has opened up a world of ways to connect with others: Facebook or Twitter postings, or through collaboration with wikis or Google docs. We can use all of this to develop a network of people and information for our own professional growth. A good start to a PLN is to check out the resources available on Twitter you might be surprised what you find there.
