So my first thought when Drew said PLN, was actually “PLU”. For you non-retail workers, this is simply the number associated with a piece
of clothing or some item you would buy in a store. Now before you think “is she
that blonde?”- There is a method to my madness. PLU- It’s one number for a
piece of clothing. When that piece of clothing changes (be color, size, etc),
so does the PLU. Now, PLN- I feel is just like that. When a different person
starts a PLN, it changes. What my PLN connects to or involves, will be
different than others, say the curly-haired Spanish teacher’s.
I think this is an awesome concept- each student, each person has a different learning network. And although they don’t match 100%, connections could be made, relationships established.
I’m kinda looking forward to exploring, strengthening and exploring my own PLN- sshhh, don’t tell Drew!
