Additional PLN Resources

Personal learning is one of the foundations of any successful school - and an element of any successful organizational change. This session focuses on tools that can be used by online teachers to build their own Personal Learning Network (PLN), which can not only support their own professional development but can also be an efficient means of diffusing innovation within their organizations. Learn to connect with a community of like minded professionals, make contributions, have conversations, and make requests in your times of need. Powerful free tools and social media make this possible for you and your district.
