Grow your local PLN

PLN, or Personal Learning Network, is such a valuable asset for any teacher. I know I depend on mine for new ideas, tools to utilize in the classroom, and for support in my new adventures. It has taken me a couple of years to grow a solid PLN and I love that it continues to grow every day, month, and year. Not that I am an expert in Social Networking, but I believe that a good PLN should combine connections from around the world and home. By having local connections you really understand the P in PLN and it makes your network that much stronger.


Now my local PLN bud, Gwyneth Jones, has started the MSET ning. If you have never joined a Ning before, you should start with this one. A ning is a social platform for people that share common interests. On a ning you can create connections, join groups, have discussions, and so much more.  Gwyneth got me hooked to the software Comic Life and has created a great little comic to show how easy it is to join the MSET ning. The Maryland Leadership Council is well represented on here and looks forward to new friend connections.
