What should your Personal Learning Network do for you?  It all revolves around communication, I think.  "It can be your most powerful tool" says Dr. David Tobin.  While he begins simply by reciting the four stages of learning; data, information, knowledge and wisdom.  He goes on to say a Learning Network can help you by: 
  • helping you sift through all the data to identify which information will be most useful to you.
  • helping you to identify learning resources and opportunities.
  • coaching you and answering your questions as you try to apply your learning to your work.
  • sharing their wisdom with you through dialogue.
I think a personal learning network lets you learn, and let's you teach others in your network.  Remember the collective power of knowledge is always greater than the knowledge of one.
