So, I am super intrigued by the visualization of a PLN (both Sheri Edwards and Margaret Powers have done some great work on this) but I am struck by the fact that some of my connections are more important than others. While I “exist” as a part of many communities, it is only a few people that end up challenging my thinking and creating the foundation for how I learn within the PLN as a whole.
So, my question is this: How do you show some connections and networks as more valuable. How do you show the revolutionary nature and influence that these individuals and “sub-communities” continue to provide for you?
That’s what I’m going to be thinking about today, and if I figure anything out, I’ll probably be making a video on it. What are your thoughts?
