The Professional Learning Network (PLN) is gaining momentum in the education lexicon. It records and reflects the personal development of a community of learners--primarily online through a variety of platforms and social networks--in which educators share resources, provide support, introduce and debate ideas and celebrate learning. These networks have become an extended professional family for many educators--a wellspring of new ideas and learning, as well as a place to network with other educators.
