AET 562 Week 4 Individual Assignment Personal Learning Network
Your PLN is just that: a personal selection of resources that will directly benefit your professional development.
Search for 10 social media accounts to follow--such as those on Twitter®, Facebook®, Pinterest®, or LinkedIn®--as well as blogs, topic-specific communities, and so forth.
Report on each site, including the name of the account, the authors, a description of the account, the benefit of this account to your PLN, and a link to the account.
Complete the Personal Learning Network (PLN) in LiveBinders. (Your final individual project will use either LiveBinders or Wikispaces and this is an opportunity to become familiar with the LiveBinders tool.)
In addition, conduct research and respond to the following questions (using APA formatted citations and references):
What is a PLN? Why is the careful selection of resources important to establishing your PLN?
What role do Twitter® and LinkedIn® play as social media tools? How can these channels benefit your professional development?
Can a PLN take the place of formal classroom training? Explain your response.
