This week I was faced with the daunting task of developing a PLN. At least I thought it was daunting until I started doing some research and creating a PLN. PLN stands for Personal Learning Network. After some more study and reading of blogs I have come to the conclusion that a PLN is an online community where like-minded people get together, share ideas and grow in their understanding of a particular subject or field.
I originally thought about doing something with writers but then I realized my first passion is teaching and kids and so I stuck with teaching. Next I had to find educators to follow on Twitter and find some blogs to follow. That wasn’t easy either and I am still in the process of finding people to follow on Twitter and interesting blogs to follow.
I found quite a few lists of educators to follow and it took some time to read through and check the educators out on Twitter but in the end I found some interesting people to follow. I am trying to focus on English Language Arts teachers and educational organizations. I also found some interesting blogs by English education teachers that I am excited to start reading.
It started out as a daunting task but one that I am now excited about!
