All of these people create your PLN – Personal Learning Network

These ideas go along with Nick Bilton’s ideas in “I Live in the Future…” (http://www.nickbilton.com/)
He talks about how he has a network of individuals that provide him the news he needs. He is a writer for the New York Times that no longer reads the paper. He calls them his cognitive network. This network of people is responsible to each other. Each feels compelled to share with others as they learn something new!

This will inevitably tie into our development of Personal Learning Environments (PLE’s) for students. Collective responsibility needs to be developed within your own PLE.
