Welcome to Week 2 - It's over to you!

Hi and welcome to week 2 - glad to see that you’ve made it this far! Thank you.

Last week, we discussed the different ways in which we learn and explored how our digital differences can affect our learning networks.

We then investigated our own personal learning networks (PLNs) - hopefully you enjoyed mapping your own network, which will have helped you to understand what your network looks like and how you use it.

This week, it’s over to you! You’ll find lots of useful links, hints and tips for you to explore as you choose. You will also explore a number of important issues for you to think carefully about, as you develop your digital literacies and your network skills. This will include assessing reliability, managing your network identity, digital creativity and digital scholarship.

Don’t forget to keep on reading and replying to comments from your fellow learners - and be sure to share your own thoughts and examples with the rest of the group, as well.

By using your PLN, you’ll learn more from each other than you ever will from me alone! Enjoy!
