A few weeks ago, I had an incredible opportunity, that, while very much a ‘real world’ experience, had as much to do with the online world of social media connections as it did face to face ones.
Allow me to explain.
About two years ago, after using Twitter for a while as a fun and casual way to connect with family and friends, I happened upon some Tweets from an educational leader who went by the Twitter handle @NMHS_Principal. I started following him, and was blown away by the incredible amounts of high quality education and edtech resources he was sharing. The names of people he was retweeting were not familiar to me, but as he mentioned them, I began to follow them as well.
Thus began my journey into the world of a PLN (Personal Learning Network).
