Teacher Cohort Session 1 & 2 -

Major Event Outcome - Establish a Personal Learning Network

A personal learning network is an informal learning network that consists of the people a learner interacts with and derives knowledge from in a personal learning environment. In a PLN, a person makes a connection with another person with the specific intent that some type of learning will occur because of that connection.

An important part of this concept is the theory of connectivism developed by George Siemens and Stephen Downes. Learners create connections and develop a network that contributes to their professional development and knowledge.[3] The learner does not have to know these people personally or ever meet them in person.
