Building a Gifted Education PLN

Building a Gifted Education PLN brought together participants from 19 states and 8 countries. The chat centered on the what, who, how and why of Personal Learning Networks. A full transcript may be found here.

Our favorite quotes from the chat include:

Krissy Venosdale@ktvee

“You may think you don’t need a PLN, but that’s just because you don’t realize what you are missing by not having one.”

Jerry Blumengarten@cybraryman1

“Everyone should be included in your PLN: students, parents, educators (teachers, counselors & administrators), community members.”

toby brown@tbbrwn

“Part of the power of the PLN is the global connection. LOVE the ability to erase miles and flatten the planet to facilitate convos.”
