My PLN

A PLN is a Personal Learning Network and it is made up of all of the websites, webtools, blogs, social networking sites, and other online gizmos and gadgets that you use to gather information.  My PLN is how I find most of the cool sites and web tools that I list here.  I am so thankful that there are other educators out there who love to share what they know.  I truly belive that sharing is an important and necessary component of being a successful educator.   
 
A BIG THANK YOU to the creators and contributors of the sites in my PLN.  Without them I wouldn't know of half the websites and webtools shared on A Teacher's Bag of Tricks.  Please take a moment to visit these sites as you might like to add them to your own PLN.
