Today, technology can connect a learner with virtually any topic that they are interested in and connect them with others who share that same interest (Maul et al, 2016). This approach to education is called ‘connected learning’ whereby education is evolving into a state of connectedness where we are connecting with services, systems, experiences, resources and knowledge online for engaging and successful learning. Learning that allows us the freedom to choose what, where how and when we want to learn.
Through my studies towards my Masters I have been researching Connected Learning Environments (CLE) as well as Personal Learning Networks (PLN). I am currently working on creating my own Personal Learning Network which obviously will be a work in progress.
