Personal Metaphor
The writer in me is always searching for the right metaphor to describe meaningful experiences, such as my Personal Learning Network (PLN).
The greatest gift I received this year was my PLN! Daily, I am surrounded by an incredibly intelligent and passionate support group, yet I met them online. How do you convey this experience to another person?
One metaphor I came up with is my PLN is like a family to me. I have not met most of you outside of this blog, Twitter, Skype, nings, Facebook, LinkedIn, Second Life, or Webinars. However, I feel very close to many of you. You share the same passions and goals as I do. You give me advice and offer me support when I have been emotionally and mentally knocked down. You celebrate my wins with me and comfort me in my losses. You continuously inspire me to be a better person and educator.
If I tell someone this who has no concept of a PLN, will they understand?Will this scare them away?
Visual Metaphor
