Personal Learning Networks (PLN) are the topic of this week’s WELSTech as we march through our summer series on Tech-Enhanced Ministry. Listen for familiar and new tools for managing your network and curating information. Martin made one of the newest his pick of the week because he was so smitten. Sallie’s got you covered for summer reading, and the WELSTech community pitches in to round out this episode.
Personal Learning Networks – Martin and Sallie discuss a powerful tool for ongoing learning and professional growth, the Personal Learning Network (PLN). Actively seeking resources on interests and responsibilities can lead to engaging in thoughtful reflection and ultimately to curating your own resources on the topic.
Check out the Building Your PLN Teacher Challenge from EduBlogs to learn more, and start or grown your PLN.
