Build your Personal Learning Neighborhood
How? Learn from @thecleversheep
This presentation of Seven Degrees of Connectedness by Rodd Lucier
@thecleversheep is the best introduction to connectedness, to taking a risk and starting to build a Personal/Professional Learning Network (or Neighborhood) I have seen. Real people. Real Stories. Be sure to watch it, and you will want to start your own journey.
And he refers to this infographic by Silvia Tolisano @langwitches (her blog) Look through these to see how you fit — it’s not linear, because we are all taking steps of connectedness in different directions — we’re travelling through neighborhoods, some of which we observe and other we jump in to participate. The important thing is to start. And once you start conversing, you will find friends — friends you may never meet in person, but whom you will care deeply, and friends and colleagues from whom you will learn and share.
