Need Help Building Your Personal Learning Network (PLN)?

Image of PLN YourselfDo you have some spare time? And want to work on building your personal learning network(PLN)? I’ve set up a PLN Yourself site that might help you.

The idea of this site is to provide a central location for “how to” guides so that you can start building your own PLN based on the 5 top tools as recommended by responses of over 160 people to my online survey.  Most of the resources on the site are compiled from information from my different web sites.

Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) are all about using web tools such as blogs, wiki, twitter, facebook to create connections with others which extend our learning, increases our reflection while enabling us to learn together as part of a global community. PLNs increase our opportunities to ask questions and receive help compared to our normal daily face-to-face interactions.

It’s really important that we use these tools first for our own personal learning so that we can understand how to use them with our students.


I’m thinking of expanding my PLN Yourself site to include 5 Top Handy tools because there are some everyday tools that are important to us all that aren’t necessarily as important for building a PLN.

What are your thoughts?

  1. Should I add 5 Top Handy tools? Or would it be too overwhelming?
  2. If I did include 5 Top Handy tools, what would your 5 choices be?
