Collaborate with Your Professional Learning Network

A teacher who doesn’t collaborate works on an isolated island. – Robert Kaplinsky ,

All educators need to connect with others to exchange their ideas and gain insight which can help them in their classrooms.  Your PLN (Professional Learning Network) can help you do this.

Ideas for ways to build your own PLN:

  1. Follow educators on Twitter
  2. Join specific Facebook groups
  3. Follow other online sources such as blogs.
  4. Connect with teachers within your own district serving in similar roles (grade level teachers among buildings, Library Media Specialists, Reading Teachers, Coaches, etc.)
  5. Connect with educators from other districts you meet.
