Due 12/10 - Personal Learning Networks Part 1

"Building a personal learning network [...] requires that you not only seek to learn from others, but also that you also help others in the network learn. Even when you are a novice in a field of learning, you can still make contributions." (Tobin, D. 1998. Building Your Personal Learning Network)

  1. I like the quote. It makes sense when you think about learning in genera l, because learning is a constant thing. It doesn't matter if you are a so called 'expert' at something, there is probably still room to grow and learn. The same thing would go with PLN's. You learn from other people online by consuming, and you produce what you consumed.
