Panning is a technique that involves moving the camera to follow your moving subject.  You generally use a slow shutter speed to blur the background.  If you move the camera at the same speed as your subject, you will keep the subject sharp, while blurring the background.

This technique takes practice and the best shutter speed to use depends upon the speed of your subject and your distance to the subject.
