Blog Post 5 - PLN
In "Developing A Personal Learning Network" , Doctor Strange points out that PLN's are always changing, worldwide, opportunistic, free (typically), and dependent on communication technologies.

Educators that are thoroughly connected in their PLN networks demonstrate collaboration and eagerness for growth.This takes some time and requires planning, but is helpful in the long run.
