The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Hey, Tom. How about an Educator's PLN t-shirt?

This ning's incredible growth is due to its wonderful members, plain and simple. But part of the reason many of us joined is because it openly champions Personal Learning Networks. The name is, frankly, brilliant. Our thanks to you Tom, for the concept and the community.

The PLN concept resonates with Twitter users more than most because those three letters are part of how we define ourselves. So, imagine an "eduPLN.ning.com" t-shirt for our community.

I'd certainly wear one to ed tech conferences. But here's the real value...

It would inspire PLN-related discussion in any venue with two or more teachers. And, more than a conversation piece, it would be a great way to introduce others to this ning and to the best professional development investment they can make--their own PLN.

Maybe we do a short run, say, 50 or so to test the waters. Perhaps someone on the ning can pitch a design to Threadless. Or this could just be an impractical fantasy.

Anyone else feel one way or the other?
