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. I simply found myself tweeting at a learning and development conference using its hashtag and others began connecting with me. After the conference, I discovered Twitter chats and began participating in them regularly. Several sources referred to PLNs as networks focused on learning about a given topic.

Demystifying Working Out Loud

Learnnovators

I am a huge believer of the practice because I have experienced the effect first hand. It has helped me to develop my personal learning network (PLN) and enabled my PKM. An approach that implies networking for personal benefits. The 9:00 am to 5:00 pm notion of work is all but vanishing, at least for the knowledge workers. The workforce is ubiquitously connected, networked, and mobile. Consistent practice leads to a network that is open, diverse and deep.

From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management

Jane Hart

If you want to grow as a person and a worker and if you want to gain skills that will help you take that next step in your career, you’ll probably have to learn those skills on your own. But in fact it has been clear for some time that many individuals are already taking responsibility for not only acquiring new knowledge and skills but for a wide range of activities for their continuous learning and professional development. So how effective are your own PKM skills?

LearnTrends: Microlearning

Experiencing eLearning

Microlearning – the learning that results from “micro” content published in short form and limited by the software and devices used to view it – offers alternatives to traditional development methods for workers who deal with web-based information as part of their job.

Demystifying Working Out Loud

ID Reflections

I am a huge believer of the practice because I have experienced the effect first hand. It has helped me to develop my personal learning network (PLN) and enabled my PKM. I would say that a platform that facilitates easy and seamless interaction, forming of groups and threads, a powerful search mechanism and a way to aggregate conversations across topics (#) would be ideal for working out loud effectively. Consistent practice leads to a network that is open, diverse and deep.

CLO Magazine

When organizations hold substantial in-person onboarding sessions, they do so in order to generate excitement among new employees, expose them to the culture of the organization and provide an opportunity to form relationships and start building internal networks.

Performance support “hearts” training and vice versa

Allison Rossett

In September I attended the eLearning Guild’s new conference, Performance Support Symposium. You have to know something to effectively use performance support for matters of meaning. Take knowledge workers like doctors and Army captains. The PDR (Physician’s Desk Reference) is an example, as are mobile checklists used in operating rooms, and even expert networks turned to when something unforeseen happens in surgery.

On the way home from the Swiss eLearning Conference, my mind was racing after three days of talking with interesting people and spreading the informal learning gospel.

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Jay Cross

Workers who know more get more accomplished. People learn to build the right network of associates and the right level of expertise through informal, sometimes even accidental, learning that flies beneath the corporate radar. Informal learning is effective because it is personal. Given today’s job mobility, workers who delegate responsibility for learning to their employers will become perpetual novices. Most of the time, it’s the individual worker. Networking.

Unprecedented changes in the role of the worker, the nature of business, the pace of innovation, the importance of intangibles, the explosion of information, and the shift from a manufacturing to a service economy have rendered traditional corporate learning obsolete. It’s a dog’s breakfast of acquiring skills, information, knowledge, savoir faire, and more. Training consisted of supervisors showing workers how to run things. Networks subvert hierarchy.
