Personal Learning Portfolios for Professionals Both posts generated meaningful discussion— with many comments coming from participants in the Education Technology & Media course (#ETMOOC). The topic of the course last week was ‘connected learning’, and discourse focused on PLEs and PLNs. “….my “hub” all of my digital work [this educator uses her blog as her ‘hub’, a platform for her portfolio].
