What is a PLN?  
A PLN is a professional learning network. This network allows you to connect with colleagues and so called experts anywhere in the world. 

In today’s world of education, it is not just about teaching. Perhaps the biggest tool that educators have available is a self created PLN. In the  past, forming teaching bonds through collaboration within your building served a powerful purpose. It allowed teachers to share ideas, discuss classroom and student issues, and have a sounding board to share information in a safe environment. In today’s world of teaching that may not be enough. There are many ways that educators can connect with each other. Social media has provided things like Twitter, Pinterest, and Google Communities. The list goes on and on. There’s enough variety to satisfy everyone’s needs.
