Dont Waste Your Time

For me collaboration starts with my network, my personal learning network, my learning environment … and here is how the tools I used) back in 2010: The tweet chat was, as before, frenzied and alive, and so very much fun. With the availability of Google Docs, Dropbox, FaceTime, Skype, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Day four is upon us (going quickly, isn’t it!)

A Deliberate and Effective PLE


Thinking about my own PLE in relation to the reading led me to developing my own PLE Model. Is your PLE Deliberate? By this i mean has your PLE just grown organically by adding and experimenting with different services or have you deliberately organised and designed your PLE to suit your learning Purpose. 2. What is the Purpose of your PLE? Planning.

Personal Learning Resources

Learning with e's

Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) are made up of more than web tools. My Personal Learning Network is essentially the people I connect with in order to learn what I need when I need it. Twitter, Facebook and other social networking tools are simply the means through which I do it. Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Personal Learning Earthquake

Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. Tuesday, June 05, 2007 Personal Learning Earthquake Sometimes tectonic plates shift and earthquakes form cracks in the crust. My personal view of e-Learning is from the corporate side of the aisle. So the PLE conversation has been, for me, framed in terms of the LMS and tools. How do you make an LMS into a PLE? Not the type of group with which I have had a lot of personal interaction, and certainly no professional contact. PLE is a concept.

Some Background I became aware of connectivist, networked models of learning whilst completing my MA in the use of interactive and collaborative technology for Adult Distance Learners in 2008. immediately appreciated the fantastic learning opportunities afforded by web 2.0 or social software and during this time I developed a model, of learning which I termed SCORE 2.0 Model to compare with the Online Distributed Model of Learning that drives this course as i am keen to work connectivist learning into formal learning situations.

AppFusion: Google+ Equals? by Terrence Wing

Learning Solutions Magazine

Early adopters are busy figuring out how to use its social features in eLearning, as a Personal Learning Environment (PLE), and elsewhere. There are many comparisons to Facebook’s user interface and functionality (for good reason).

Micro-Learning: Its Role in Formal, Informal and Incidental Learning

ID Reflections

What is micro-learning? What characteristics define micro-learning? In this post, I have looked at micro-learning from the point of view of efficacy as well as applicability. Microlearning deals with relatively small learning units and short-term learning activities. Generally, the term ''microlearning'' refers to micro-perspectives in the context of learning, education and training. typical requirement statement could sound like this: “We want short capsules of learning or learning nuggets that will run on all devices.

Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

I thought I'd kick off this year by posting a series of posts on topics related to tools and methods for work and learning. I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? But I'm worried, because while I just got through writing about my concern in Using SharePoint that learning organizations seemed to be making the same mistake of Not Preparing Workers for Web 2.0. The same tool and method can be highly effective for one person and not effective for others.

This got me thinking more about the words "personal" and "personalization". Corporations can "personalize" a Professional Learning Environment (aka an LMS), allowing users to add their own widgets; they can allow trainers to update a users training record; they can let the user set preferences.

Too much to learn - not enough space?!

Designed for Learning

If you are one of those folks who have an account in every possible corner of the online space; orkut, facebook, plaxo, blogger etc and boast of a "second life" or even more, I am sure you need your daily dose of scraps, pokes, walls, shout outs, gifts etc. Facebook goes through 600 million searches per month. In my view, that is what will make or break the learning environments of tomorrow. The question is why are we learning from these environments? These technologies are intrusive and personal but only as much as you want them to be - absolute learner control.

The first decade of the 21st Century was highly significant for personal learning. Such a vast array of new personal devices and web applications was introduced that have become so deeply ingrained in our everyday lives, many of us would probably feel at a loss if we were suddenly transported back to 1999.

for Learning Professionals is wrapping up. Here are some thoughts on this topic, especially thoughts around social networks for learning. As a teacher, we learn how to manage that. As a student we learn how to ignore the chatter. Still, if I ask, what would I want to have helped learning professionals to know at a base level around social networks and their relationship to learning: What's a social network and what do users do in social networks? How do social networks relate to personal learning? don't know about ning or even facebook.
