E-Learning Provocateur

Recently Anne Marie blogged Location and Learning (which I have reproduced here) and she asked me whether or not I consider her central idea an example of an Informal Learning Environment (ILE).

#LearningIs personal

Learning with e's

We all learn differently. Everyone of us has individual needs and personal requirements. Unfortunately, most of us are products of education systems that are based on the industrial model of education which is far removed from personalised learning. It means that everyone has to try to fit in, even if the methods and environments don't meet their needs. Unported License.

This time it's personal

Learning with e's

Personal. That means that when you learn, you do it differently to everyone else. It follows that the tools and technologies you use for learning are those you have selected to use because you are (or should be) comfortable with them, personally. These tools, services and technologies become a part of your personal learning environment or PLE.

Open Learning Network vs Informal Learning Environment

E-Learning Provocateur

In the comments section of my previous post, Mike Caulfield kindly pointed me to the article Envisioning the Post-LMS Era: The Open Learning Network by Jonathan Mott.

Create Autonomy in Gamification and Other Learning Environments

Kapp Notes

When thinking about creating a gamification experience (or any learning experience), allow and encourage the learner to make meaningful and consequential choices. Fake choices = fake interest in the learning event. When a learner makes a choice in a gamification environment, the system, teacher or environment responds in some way. Clark & Mayer, 2011; Reeve et al.,

Thoughts on Personalized Learning

Learning Wire

Personalization of learning is what it sounds like, programs adapted to the needs, the learning methods, and the desires, of learners. Personalization seeks what the learner wants to learn, and how he or she wants to learn. Personalization focuses on the basic desire of people to enjoy what they are doing. So how do we personalize learning?

The personal web

With the Southampton PLE Conference #PLE_SOU at full throttle, I thought it would be a good time to reiterate my views on the personal web.

They want to be part of a community and feel like what they are learning matters in a practical sense.

Personalized vs Adaptive Learning

Axonify

We get a lot of questions about the difference between personalized and adaptive learning. This makes sense because they’ve often been used interchangeably in the learning realm. So, here’s the lowdown on what each term means, how they’re different and how they work together in a modern learning scenario. Learning progresses in a largely linear method. The result?

Student voices unheard?

Learning with e's

Students should be at the centre of the learning process - where else could they legitimately be? However, if they don't have a voice in their own learning, they are peripheral to the process, and education fails them. If we ignore student voices, we will miss some valuable insights into the way they learn. What methods of learning do they prefer? Are these supported?

Personal learning environments

Clive on Learning

From his posting , Stephen Downes sounds like he didn't really enjoy giving his talk on personal learning environments here in Boston yesterday, what with all that having to connect with "corporate e-learning industry types".
