A personal learning network (PLN) is a network of people and tools that are there for helping you, collaborate, and any other assistance you need. They can consist of fellow teachers, who have ideas that maybe you haven't yet thought about. A PLN is created through means of social media, websites, classmates, and teachers. You can create a PLN by following people on social media and by contributing ideas through blogs. My first additions to my PLN is my College of Education teachers. I will also be adding teachers who teach social sciences. I believe networking is needed so that teachers can expand their knowledge.
