Official description: Microlearning: Beyond Learning Objects and Just-in-time Performance Support.

Learning with 'e's

The institutional learning platform - the VLE - is a classic case of decisions made about learning without consulting the learner. How can we reach a place in education where students find their own level and make their own pathways through learning? Rhizome theory is also a useful framework for understanding self-determined learning - the heutagogy described by Hase and Kenyon. Students can, and do, create their own personalised learning pathways.

The Learning Circuits

the collaborative learning environments sourcebook was one of the first resources i use when i began learning about communities of practice. but what struck me as worth blogging about was that i rediscovered this resource through practicing one of the first forms of informal learning that the internet spawned - web surfing. just to explore and learn. i just had the experience that i'm sure happens to many of us. i was reunited with a long lost favorite website.
