My Personal Learning Network (PLN)
The network I am working to create is harder than I expected. I mean I have a network of friends that I go to help with discussions, to edit my papers, and even help me understand assignments in my classes. So far in my academic career, I have created a network of "go to friends" on Facebook that help me when I need to create a poll or just find out other perspectives and opinions. Dr. Strange has also been a huge help! Especially since he has granted his students access to his PLN on Delicious. At the University of South Alabama, I am working to create a network of professors that I can call on if and when I need help. Dr.Peggy Delmas, Dr. John Strange, Mr. Robby Byrd, and Ms. Karen Peterson have been a tremendous help to me in my short time here. I use Skype but haven't created an extensive network of people besides my friends. So, I guess this is an okay start to what I hope to become a PLN that grants me access to people world-wide!
