Learning Networks 2.0

I have been revisiting my learning networks over the last several weeks.  I am still in the consumer phase with my learning networks.  I have a goal of one day being a contributor. I have a lot of experience but I really only share with in my school professional learning network (content and grade level).  I have updated my networks below to include how they are useful to me.
