I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Tom Spiglanin

When I started using Twitter for my professional growth and development, I didn’t realize that I was also starting to build my personal learning network. simply found myself tweeting at a learning and development conference using its hashtag and others began connecting with me. even gave it my own name: “On-fire learning.” Mark Sheppard.

Everyone has one

Learning with e's

Everyone has one - a personal learning environment, that is. We all learn. We all use tools to help us learn. Personal learning environments or PLEs, are the collection of tools (not just online) that enable us to connect, create and share content with our own communities of interest and practice.

PLE bargaining

Learning with e's

Those attending the PLE Conference found themselves quickly immersed in discussion, dialogue and debate over the nature and ethos of the personal learning environment. The Twitter stream alone went wild, and by midday on the second day there had been over 5000 messages inserted into the #PLE-BCN hashtag stream. The unKeynote was quite a feature of this event.

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? Should twitter be part of your tool set? 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. What should be in your tool set? So, here goes.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Personalization does not equal Personal

Learning Visions

Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. 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. 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.

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. there was Twitter : Forget all the celebrity rubbish and media hype.

There has been a bit of discussion on Twitter, and at our recent ALT-C VLE symposium, on the importance of naming things. At the VLE is Dead symposium , there was an issue over the term PLE (Personal Learning Environment). Trying to take something like Web 2.0, or the PLE and rename will be a little more difficult, I predict. And just how does a name come about?

It's a movement against the commoditization of learning and against corporate profiteering. It is also a counterculture against corporate control and exploitation of learning, and brings the punk band (the teacher) closer to the audience (learner group). Rhizomatic approaches to learning fall into this kind of philosophy. What can you do? No access to Elluminate. It worked.

Upside Learning

Jane Hart released the final list of top 100 tools for learning 2009 last month.

Informal Learning Technology

There's a fantastic post by Stephen Downes - New Technology Supporting Informal Learning. So as you read this, keep in mind that Stephen was primarily talking about technology that can support a Formal Learning Event that heavily leverages Informal / Social Learning as it's primary mechanism. Training Modalities Stephen tells us at the outset: Online learning today is beginning to be dominated by developments in games, simulations and related technologies. There's a lot to learn from that experience. It's definitely worth a read. eLearning Technology.

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?

Creating a Learning Platform for Boyd's OODA Loop

Big Dog, Little Dog

In my last post I talked about getting more out of AARs by incorporating them with informal learning and social media tools and then pushing it with formal learning in order to capture lessons learned. This approach allows you to set up a learning strategy that is a real process rather than a one time event. Similar approaches can be done with the OODA loop. Observe.
