Build a powerful PLN

Learning with e's

They may be people you meet on a daily basis, but more often than not in the digital age, many PLNs are comprised of people we interact with on social networking sites. In my opinion, the most powerful PLN building tool is Twitter. learn something new everyday, usually as a result of dialogue on Twitter, or clicking on a link someone has shared in my timeline.

Twitter and Webinars

Tony Karrer

Many of the participants are Twitter users who are becoming used to chatting via twitter. have a chat stream happening and there's one going on via twitter. Presentation Mastery: Twitter as a Presentation Resource There are lots of good suggestions in these, but they don't really address the issue of how to present when the audience may be splitting their chat between the webinar tool and twitter. Twitter Chat Annoying? Actually, before I go any farther, I've got to ask: Doesn't anyone else find the use of Twitter as a true Chat Channel a bit annoying?

Twitter for learning

Sticky Learning

Why wouldn't you use Twitter?! I've only been actively participating on Twitter for 4-5 months now. I'm also interested in how design thinking impacts upon learning and the use of visuals to communicate ideas and knowledge.  In the few months that I've been active on Twitter I have been exposed to more ideas from more sources than in whole years previously. Twitter keeps me current. I can go to university and complete a course, but after a VERY short while that knowledge is dated. Twitter is free, always available and keeps you up to date with the very latest ideas.

I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

Sharing knowledge, using any number of media that fit our personal needs, work styles, and professional social networks. Much of this happens on social streams on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or any number of other media where we connect with our PLNs, so it’s important to develop effective social media practices. So too are our personal learning networks. 1994).

Social enzymes

Learning with e's

Wikis, blogs, podcasts, social bookmarking, RSS feeds, microblogs, social networking. When we eavesdrop on Twitter conversations, and simply 'lurk', we are learning informally.

Instructivism, constructivism or connectivism?

E-Learning Provocateur

In a previous article , I provided the following examples of potential information sources that the learner could incorporate into their personal learning network: Social bookmarks. Social and professional networks such as Facebook and Twitter. Instructivism is dead. Gone are the days of an authoritarian teacher transmitting pre-defined information to passive students. In the 1990s, constructivism heralded a new dawn in instructional design, turbo-charged by the rise of Web 2.0. Fast forward to today and connectivism is all the rage. Slippery slope. The real world.

So many learning style tests, so little time.

Joitske Hulsebosch eLearning

asked a question about learning styles on Twitter and in Jane Hart's social learning community and got some good responses which made me really think! One of the observations I have with regards to the use of social media is that some people just love delicious , the social bookmarking service, and others don't bother at all after you show them. My take aways?

Mmmmmmm, delicious

Spark Your Interest

I have used the social bookmarking service delicious on a fairly superficial level up to now, I would say. . I was interested in how I could share my links and when I was a manager of 12 trainers/instructional designers, the benefits of a pooled set of favourites/bookmarks, tagged and annotated made me salivate.  I realize now that this is really level one use, a group uploading their faves to the same place, mainly an efficiency savings and an access winner. . I’m no longer a manager with employees, I’m an independent.  Do I connect it to twitter?

Connectivism and the modern learner

E-Learning Provocateur

Consider the following: Create a social bookmarking account to share useful websites. Use Twitter and Facebook to foster social/professional networking. Recently, I read a blog article about connectivism by Debora Gallo. Soon after, I attended a presentation about m-learning by Jan Herrington, in which she too mentioned connectivism. Theoretical foundations. Moving on.
