#GuildChat for 01/15/16: Developing Your Personal Learning Network

Our next #GuildChat takes place Friday, January 15 at 11am PT / 2pm ET. Our topic for this week’s chat is Developing Your Personal Learning Network.

The tools we can use to communicate, collaborate, share and build community have become diverse, numerous, and available on multiple devices. We literally have the ability to connect with the world right in the palm of our hands.  With so much content in the form of information and conversation available to us, the question becomes how can we possibly make this all work for us efficiently and effectively?GuildChat_Logo

Personal Learning Networks (PLNs) do not require technology, but the advancement of technology has not only amplified the conversation around PLNs but  has enabled us to build them beyond our geographic space.

In this week’s #GuildChat we revisit the idea of a PLN, what makes for a productive PLN, and how do we best manage our learning within it. Additionally we will look a the tools and techniques the community has used to build their PLNs over the years.
