My Personal Learning Network, or PLN, is a way for me to connect with other people in my field, and see what people are talking about. Having a PLN as a student and a professional is important so that you can stay in tune with what is going on in your field and related interests.
I created a professional twitter for my IDS intro course. I was already familiar with twitter, so I thought it would be a good platform. Having two separate twitter accounts, one for personal use and one for professional use, has proven to be a good thing for me.
Since my introduction course, I have not used my professional twitter. I have recently revamped it and updated it accordingly to my changing interests and priorities. I think that this will be a good tool for this course, but also moving forward in my professional career. I am going to continue using twitter as my PLN. Follow me on Twitter!
