    This is a great little book that's packed with lots of practical ideas about how K-12 educators can not only transform their own learning experiences, but that of the institutions in which they work. The concept of what is a "Personal Learning Networks" is explored in depth. Guidelines for how to create an individual PLN is revealed through real life examples. The process and timeline for implementing a program to create a "networked" school community is explained with outlines and time frames.

I've recommended this book, along with the Powerful Learning Network to several educator friends.

    Great mix of theory and practical suggestions. Not much new for those that are already tapped in to the current thinking on networked learning, but could be considered essential reading for those educators who are not. There were times when I would have liked to see more concrete evidence of the ideas being purported. Nice anecdotes throughout, but maybe the research hasn't caught up to give a little more weight to the true benefits and hazards of connected learning.

    Another excellent and forward thinking book co-authored by Will Richardson and Rob Mancabelli. The focus again is on making connections through social networking to enhance and improve educational practice. Many clear explanations and examples are included in each chapter that are easy to follow with much practical tips and tricks. The Twitter section is great!

    A book about technology in education that has and will stand the test of time. While a few of the tools are outdated in the text, the premise of becoming a more connected educator and tapping into the vast knowledge that a PLN can provide is timeless. This is a book I sincerely hope the authors offer a 2nd edition someday.

    This was a great tool as I continue to develop my Personal Learning Network and start deciding how to implement PLN's with my students. Lots of great resources mentioned that I will be going back to as I continue down my 21st century learning journey.
