Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? But hopefully 2009 will be the year when that begins to change. If you care about being relevant and valuable in 2015, you had better be making moves in 2009. For example, Personal Learning , PLE , PWLE , PKM are all pretty closely related. But when I go to PLE and then look at the related Tools, I'm not seeing clear winners. What should be in your tool set? What are the most important methods to adopt in addition to the tools?

Jane Hart released the final list of top 100 tools for learning 2009 last month. We contributed to this list and here’s the list of Our Top 10 Tools for Learning 2009.

I either review them immediately or mark them as favorites for future reading and that seems to be working well for my PLE. It’s been created based on responses from 278 learning professionals worldwide and has taken several months to compile. The Top 10 Tools are: 1. Twitter. 2. Delicious. 3. YouTube.

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Tom Spiglanin

Before joining Twitter in 2009 (and really starting to use it in 2011), my PLN was limited to those I had worked with or perhaps saw once a month at a SIG meeting. The author originally used the phrase, “Personal Learning Environment (PLE),” based on the theory of connectivism conceptualized by George Siemens and Stephen Downes. It wasn’t very useful.

No one seems to be able to agree on what a PLE is. Last year we ran a special issue on PLEs, and to give you a flavour, here are two of the abstracts: The first article, written by the guest editors Mark Johnson and Oleg Liber, examines learner agency: We present the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) as a practical intervention concerning the organization of technology in education.

Informal Learning Technology

Tony Karrer

In his post, he really is looking primarily at the University of Manitoba's Connectivism Course that he designed and delivered with George Siemens to 2200 students in Fall 2008 and you can tell that he's busy thinking about the technology behind the Fall 2009 course. Possibly some of the social signals that we could use could have helped him, and I'll be curious how he automates more of that for the Fall 2009 class. There's a fantastic post by Stephen Downes - New Technology Supporting Informal Learning. It's definitely worth a read. There's a lot to learn from that experience.

PLE 2

Dead personal

Learning with e's

I was also asked why I didn't use the term PLE (Personal Learning Environment). The authors of the 2009 Horizon Report (I cannot recommend this document highly enough) succinctly define the personal web as "a term coined to represent a collection of technologies that confer the ability to reorganize, configure and manage online content rather than just viewing it". Sound like a PLE?

Hanging in there

Learning with e's

For it is within the PLE that students can truly pursue their own interests, motivate themselves to learn and generally capitalise on their personal talents and skills. It is the PLE that enables learners to transcend the often stifling nature of the institutional VLE to make their own creative choices about tool selection and formation of digital presence and identity.

Lost in translation

Learning with e's

At the VLE is Dead symposium , there was an issue over the term PLE (Personal Learning Environment). Some people objected to it being named as such, because they argue, the PLE is not a 'thing', but a concept or more accurately a counterpoint in the discourse of the VLE. or the PLE and rename will be a little more difficult, I predict. Web 2.0 is a case in point. you know.

What a Corker

I did a dry run using the 'It's personal' slides, which I was to use later for the PLE/PLN online symposium. The evening Elluminate session for the PLE/PLN online symposium , organised by Stephen Downes, George Siemens and Rita Kop, was a different affair entirely. I stayed at the wonderful Fernroyd House B & B where I was looked after very well indeed (Thanks Tony).

The Performance Environment

Clark Quinn

Now, personal learning environments (PLE) is not a completely new concept, and quite a number of folks contributed their PLEs here. I’ve represented the performance ecosystem in several ways in the past, and that process continues to occur. However, I wasn’t creating mine so much as a conceptual framework, yet it shares characteristics with many. So, what do you think?

Check out this little gem from Dan Kennedy on the VLE/PLE debate. Games based learning is currently a hotly debated topic in education and is a fertile field of study (Holmes, 2011; Abrams, 2009). I''m a big advocate of student publications. Many have some great ideas to share, and we encourage student blogging very strongly in Plymouth. It''s also very motivating for them.
