What is a PLN?

A Personal Learning Network or most commonly known as a PLN, is an online learning tool that allows you to share your own learning with people of similar interests. Instead of sharing your learning with people face to face in real life, you are able to share useful resources that may assist others in an online environment.

Teachers are increasingly using this tool as it allows them to showcase their education journey and share teaching practices/approaches that may foster children’s learning in the classroom.
