Ray Sims - Ongoing Series of his PWLE
JUNE 11, 2007
I never know what kinds of things to link to in my blog posts, but definitely if you've not been checking out Ray Sim's recent posts where he dives into how he uses different tools as part of his PWLE. Search Alert Tips LinkedIn del.icio.us Taking a look at some of his early posts around personal learning and doing environments is also time well spent if you are interested in learning how to learn. I love how Ray translates concepts into practice. He did similar things around informal learning a while ago. Good stuff Ray
Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion
JUNE 4, 2007
I've run across a few different posts talking about Personal Work and Learning Environments which I have tentatively started to call PWLE - pronounced p-whale. The reason why I think it's worth us talking about tools and maps and basically what is your PWLE (p-whale) is that it's helpful for us to figure out how to support our own personal work and learning. But I think we need to add to this discussion more around the specific kinds of actions that we take as individuals on different types of tasks and how this relates to our PWLE (p-Whale). For me, I add -- why bother?
PLE - PWLE Discussion Contiunes - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights
JUNE 10, 2007
The enterprise provides tools to employees that they can use as part of the PWLE. I could understand an argument that it would be preferable for individuals to be able to use the same tools outside the corporation for personal interests - but I don't see his argument that it is no longer a PLE or PWLE. I would have trouble separating a PWLE from the rest of my life, let alone the rest of my learning. Thus, there's no separation between a PLE and a PWLE. I'm suggesting the term PWLE because it highlights this exact issue. Stephen tells us. and Michelle says.

Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - eLearning Technology. Thinking is so over - Times Online. The idea that content on the web is "free" is mistaken: the hidden cost may be the demise of old media and entire art forms on which the free content depends. Another web idea dismantled by Keen is the concept of the "long tail" - the slow but gradual accumulation of sales by niche products such as books that could never have commanded shelf space in shops but can wait for buyers to find them on Amazon. Somehow those 10 readers will find you. Also see, Does Internet democracy work?
Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall
JUNE 7, 2007
Stephen Downes commented on my recent post - Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion and said - I am opposed to the trend coming from the corporate learning side of the house to treat PLEs as work tools. What is it about people in corporate learning that they feel the need to perpetuate the attitude of servitude it seems all learners must adopt. We don't exist to work for a corporation; our learning, our minds , our most valuable asset of all, ought to serve our own purposes first and foremost. It is an interesting issue.
Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Personalization does not equal Personal
JUNE 11, 2007
Monday, June 11, 2007 Personalization does not equal Personal Ive been catching up this morning on all the recent PLE posts, particularly Tom Haskins recent entries. For folks who are not passionate about their work -- many who reside within the traditional, corporate firewall -- the PWLE is Pointless. Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. Today, Tom mentions that "James Ryan left an extensive comment on Enterprises that love PLEs. This got me thinking more about the words "personal" and "personalization". Why is that?

Informal Learning Technology
MAY 11, 2009
Akili, 2007) I was just recently looking back at my post Training Methods and have been evaluating submissions as part of preparing for the upcoming eLearning Tour. When I look at this from more the PWLE ( Personal WORK and learning environment ) perspective, I find that there are similar functions, but possibly a different mind set. There's a fantastic post by Stephen Downes - New Technology Supporting Informal Learning. It's definitely worth a read. Somewhat random thoughts as I reviewed the post. Stephen goes through a great description of the course. eLearning Technology.

Knowledge Work Skills / Work Literacy Having realized in 2007 that there's a very important Knowledge Worker Skill Gap , I felt the need in 2008 to find ways to help knowledge workers and organizations build skills like Leveraging Networks , Network Feedback , Finding Expertise , Using Social Media to Find Answers to Questions , Learning through Conversation and searching, scanning, etc. was considered a hot term in 2007 and 2008, but not in 2009. It’s very powerful stuff and an important extension to my PWLE. I’ve been doing this the past few years. eLearning 2.0
