Blogging Inside or Outside the Corporate Firewall

Tony Karrer

Stephen Downes commented on my recent post - Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion and said - I am opposed to the trend coming from the corporate learning side of the house to treat PLEs as work tools. What is it about people in corporate learning that they feel the need to perpetuate the attitude of servitude it seems all learners must adopt. If it's captured in a system inside the corporate firewall, it won't go outside.

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

This continues the discussion being had around PLE/PWLEs - see More Discussion on Personal Work Learning Environments for a bit of recap. Clearly this is a different use of PLE's than those outside the firewall, for free rangers, and for learning from everything of personal interest. The enterprise provides tools to employees that they can use as part of the PWLE. Learning is certainly very individual, does that mean we should help people learn how to learn?

More Discussion on Personal Work Learning Environments

Tony Karrer

There's some great discussion happening around the issues of control and resulting ownership of work product as we create personal work learning environments. Enterprises that love PLE's Cross battles Downes: is corporate learning corrupt? then shouldn't you make sure you provide these tools now rather than having tools adopted that are outside the firewall and personally owned where you will lose the content if the employee leaves

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? 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.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Personalization does not equal Personal

Learning Visions

Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. 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. But that does not equal a Personal Learning Environment. Thats just a personalized Professional Learning Environment.
