Creating Your Personal Learning Network

The School Library Association of Victoria in partnership with the State Library of Victoria present the PLN – Personal Learning Network program. This program is funded as part of the digital education content initiatives and strategies of the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

Your PLN is a reciprocal learning system designed just for you!

  • Create your own personalised learning network and share information, opinions and experiences with like-minded people from across the globe,
  • Apply a little intelligent filtering to the information overload out there,
  • Learn from others and contribute to others’ learning,
  • Connect around ideas that you are passionate about.

Find out how you can use the web 2.0 environment to:

  • Expand your personal learning network,
  • Manage the information that web 2.0 provides,
  • Use web 2.0 for learning and teaching,
  • Develop your skills and experience in a web 2.0 environment.

This twelve week online program, enhanced with regular Elluminate how-to sessions, exemplars, and online mentoring offers you a hands-on experience of a range of web 2.0 tools and activities.

This program is designed for novices to the web 2.0 world as well as those who wish to further explore this interactive web environment.

  2. Does the course have to be done on Tuesdays or is it possible to do it on a Wednesday? My fellow Librarian and I only work together on a Wednesday.

    • Dianne, you can do the course any time of the day or any day of the week, it just begins on a Tuesday and some of the Elluminate sessions are on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursday, but they are optional. Go for it!

  3. I tried to do something similar a couple of years ago, but kept getting blocked my the school system. Will I have this problem again?

  8. Can we have some early information please about setting up Elluminate? We have three people from our College participating. I will need some time to work with our systems support people to have things in place and to make sure we are ready in time. Thanks

  9. Bright Ideas has a lot of links under Elluminate (right hand side of the page) to let you see if you can run Elluminate in your school. Basically you need Java for it to work. Have a go at the links and let me know.
