BUILDING A PLNThe Power of Connection: Building a Personal Learning NetworkThe use of social media in today’s world has changed the opportunity and capacity at which learning new information occurs. Students have a plethora of options all the way from Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and scholarly journals so finding a way to channel all the noise is very valuable. In this paper I will explain how I plan to build and develop my own Personal Learning Network (PLN).Networks and ToolsThis week’s learning resources included an article detailing a study on college students and their ability to build a PLN through their Twitter accounts (Marín, Negre, & Pérez, 2014). Inaddition to Twitter I will be utilizing Instagram as another valuable tool. These two social media platforms contain a massive amount of information and more importantly their short delivery allows for the user to quickly decide whether or not to move forward with posted information. Inmy case my biography would include specific interest in business in hopes to attract other like-minded individuals or groups on those platforms. This verbiage would like something along the line of “Doctoral Candidate, Reader, and Writer, focused on spreading the best business practicesto minority business owners.”
