The site is a great resource to understand the purpose, future, and strength of a PLN. The basis of the post is that Professional Learning does not happen by accident or without a focused purpose. The post premises the PLN as a part of a learning plan that has to come from personal motivation, personal growth is achievable, and obstacles will need to be overcome.
The article continues to detail how the PLN as a part of a plan will change the learning process. How the learning process will eventually mimic a MOOC and will allow students or professionals to access learning at anytime and at any pace.
The most important piece of the article is the critical idea that learning has a purpose for others other than any one individual. That learning can increase a community’s value.
The article does have some shortcomings. It does not address strategies to increase or start a PLN, but only gives the motivation to work at a PLN as a part of your overall learning plan.
