One of the most valuable assets a 21st Century learner has is their personal learning network (PLN).

Fish are the last to recognise water = informal learning?

I just twittered a thought - 'The benefit of Informal learning is that fish are the last to recognise water' - and then I started thinking. This is the real essence of informal learning.

While Robert writes of informal learning, learning 2.0, education, and training; I'm going to stick with informal learning in the workplace to help keep this post more focused.

Robert mentions the terms "incidental learning" and "intentional learning," which basically refers to the intent of the learning objectives.
