I think this is a great idea! I am part of two Nings and have gotten specific answers to questions when I needed help.
This is a perfect place to share and collaborate information concerning Personal Learning Networks (especially for newbies). I plan to add this PLN Ning site to our District Ning link as a resource to get help for PLN's.
Thanks Tom for starting this Ning. I learn so much every day from my PLN on Twitter, but not every educator is ready for Twitter yet. This will be a great way to help them start building their online PLN.
I think it will be a great follow up to what Twitter has started. Twitter has already broadened my teaching and learning horizons but it would be good to have longer sustained on conversations sometimes. The Educator's PLN Ning has a good chance of being that follow up conversation. I know I'm glad to see it here.
I think it's wonderful... a place to learn, think, rethink, reflect, share, ask (and don't be afraid to be asking what others may take for granted) because what I think I know may be new for someone else. So it's fantastic! I'm sure I will learn a lot as I'm learning with my PLN at twitter.
Great experiences for everybody!

The idea that lockdown has resulted in lost learning and a widening of the gap can't be disputed but it is the solutions put forward by government which has revealed the reductive nature of the government's attitude to learning and to young people. To reduce education and learning to an accumulation of facts devoid from any contextual influence is just simply naive.…See More
