Another week, another edtech term. And for this week's edtech jargon, let's look at something really close to home - your Personal Learning Network or PLN.
A PLN is what it is - your personal learning network; the network of people you learn from. But, let's look at what makes your PLN different from the university and classroom learning. And I would have to say the most important word in the sequence is PERSONAL.
Another advantage of PLN is that YOU not only get to choose the expert to learn from, you also get to choose the different topics to learn. In addition, you also get to choose the medium, the device, and the time to learn. In summary, your PLN is all about YOU and your learning.
Here's an awesome video from Marc-Andre Lalande and from our friends over at Devpro PD explaining what a PLN is in 2 minutes. Enjoy!
