A Personal Learning Network empowers individuals to connect with other learners on a global basis. It is a personalized network developed according to individual interests and objectives. Forums, blogs and the sharing of resources and ideas of similar interest construct PLN’s. Personal Learning Networks enable educators to collaborate through sharing ideas, materials and resources, providing support to one another and celebrating learning within the online learning space.
