Tony Karrer

I never know what kinds of things to link to in my blog posts, but definitely if you've not been checking out Ray Sim's recent posts where he dives into how he uses different tools as part of his PWLE. Search Alert Tips LinkedIn del.icio.us Taking a look at some of his early posts around personal learning and doing environments is also time well spent if you are interested in learning how to learn.

Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion

Tony Karrer

I've run across a few different posts talking about Personal Work and Learning Environments which I have tentatively started to call PWLE - pronounced p-whale.

PLE - PWLE Discussion Contiunes - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights

Tony Karrer

The enterprise provides tools to employees that they can use as part of the PWLE. I could understand an argument that it would be preferable for individuals to be able to use the same tools outside the corporation for personal interests - but I don't see his argument that it is no longer a PLE or PWLE. I would have trouble separating a PWLE from the rest of my life, let alone the rest of my learning. Thus, there's no separation between a PLE and a PWLE.

Informal Learning Technology

Tony Karrer

Akili, 2007) I was just recently looking back at my post Training Methods and have been evaluating submissions as part of preparing for the upcoming eLearning Tour. When I look at this from more the PWLE ( Personal WORK and learning environment ) perspective, I find that there are similar functions, but possibly a different mind set. There's a fantastic post by Stephen Downes - New Technology Supporting Informal Learning.
