Social and connective lock-in

George Siemens

Connective lock-in – where we have lost control of our ability to define and shape connections because the proprietary connection tools ((Like, Facebook Connect, Twitter) are so ubiquitous and services (Delicious, EverNote, DropBox) are so easy to use. An important part of PLE/Ns is giving individuals the skills and technology to control our connections. This principle applies not only to knowledge growth, but also to organizational value networks , social networks , underpins the concept of the semantic web, and so on. Companies realize this.

WEEK 1: A TOUR OF PLEs & PLNs The first week of PLENK 2010 was an explosive and inspiring discussion flow of ideas and thoughts from the participants (and facilitators); exploring what is a Personal Learning Network (PLN) , or should I say Personal Learning Environment (PLE).

Informal Learning Technology

Tony Karrer

Downes, Theory of Learning Networks, 2004) PLE functions: aggregate remix repurpose feed forward It's interesting to see this perspective on the PLE where it is part of the Connectivism course and students are naturally motivated (or required) to share. Looking back at my Tool Set series at the start of this year, there were very similar kinds of capabilities being described. If you think of Flickr, Wikipedia, Delicious – these all are content-centric networks. There's a fantastic post by Stephen Downes - New Technology Supporting Informal Learning.

I way that this might improve is better leverage many of the visualization and integration tools that have emerged around social bookmarking services. Allowing ratings, discussion, and more descriptive information to the resource we continue to add value to the content as a learning tool. The RSS feed for ALL of my bookmarks, youd have to get from delicious itself. from the web. right?

My path through PLENK, or, MOOCing around

Dave's Whiteboard

Everyone and his cousin Bernie drew diagrams of their networks, and a daunting number of discussion posts probed the nuances of PLE versus PLN versus VLE… truly, I expected to see RSVP versus SPQR. In how to take this course , the PLENK facilitators said the purpose isn’t to use a bunch of tools; it’s to practice using those tools to select content, rework it, create something new, and share–particularly with others in the course. The third week of PLENK2010 is ending.  Finding out more about knowledge wasn’t that high on my list.  Net worth.
