My Personal Learning Network
A Personal Learning Network or PLN is the set of people and tools you can call upon for collaboration, consultation, help, or any other type of assistance throughout school and your career as a teacher. I created my PLN using Symbaloo. Symbaloo is a way to organize your PLN. I have been adding sources to my PLN through Pinterest, Twitter, and Facebook. I guess I have really been working on a PLN way before this class started. I just did not know what it was called. I have used Pinterest a great deal to pin lessons and study guides for the new core curriculum. I also use it to pin a lot of useful technology ideas because my cousin is the tech coordinator for the Mobile County Public School System, so I am always up to date on what’s new for the classroom. I am trying to expand in the twitter world but I am honestly not a huge fan of it. I also have a large teacher friend database through Facebook. It is a learning process and as I grow and learn as a teacher my PLN will expand.
