Tool Set 2009

Tony Karrer

I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? But hopefully 2009 will be the year when that begins to change. If you care about being relevant and valuable in 2015, you had better be making moves in 2009. For example, Personal Learning , PLE , PWLE , PKM are all pretty closely related. But when I go to PLE and then look at the related Tools, I'm not seeing clear winners.

It's always interesting to look back at the past year - 2008, think about what has changed for me during the year, and think about what that means for the next year - 2009. We won't hear much this year, but in 2009, this will be something you'll hear in a big way. Maybe 2009?

Jane Hart released the final list of top 100 tools for learning 2009 last month. We contributed to this list and here’s the list of Our Top 10 Tools for Learning 2009.

I either review them immediately or mark them as favorites for future reading and that seems to be working well for my PLE.

Informal Learning Technology

Tony Karrer

In his post, he really is looking primarily at the University of Manitoba's Connectivism Course that he designed and delivered with George Siemens to 2200 students in Fall 2008 and you can tell that he's busy thinking about the technology behind the Fall 2009 course. Possibly some of the social signals that we could use could have helped him, and I'll be curious how he automates more of that for the Fall 2009 class.

No one seems to be able to agree on what a PLE is. We explain how the PLE, in exploiting Service Oriented Architecture, attempts to address this issue of the engagement with tools by allowing learners to control their own instrumentation.

Lost in translation

Learning with e's

At the VLE is Dead symposium , there was an issue over the term PLE (Personal Learning Environment). Some people objected to it being named as such, because they argue, the PLE is not a 'thing', but a concept or more accurately a counterpoint in the discourse of the VLE.
