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. Specifically focusing on OTJ skills & knowledge. Focused on knowledge workers–people who use digital info in their jobs. not knowledge workers.

Personal Learning Knowledge Work Environment

Tony Karrer

world that included a post by Bill Ives - Managing Personal Knowledge: Setting a Foundation for Transformation? adoption is getting folks to manage their personal knowledge and adopt practices like blogging for personal knowledge management (PKM) and personal learning. Learning-Knowledge-Work - they really are the same and I need to do them all at once. If you make these independent and distinct, it will be really annoying for us knowledge workers.

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Tom Spiglanin

Recognizing this learning and making good use of it requires effective personal knowledge management practices. For knowledge workers in different fields, we have an awful lot to keep up with (wide and deep), and this is becoming increasingly impossible, especially at the increasing rate of change. The author originally used the phrase, “Personal Learning Environment (PLE),” based on the theory of connectivism conceptualized by George Siemens and Stephen Downes.

Downes, Theory of Learning Networks, 2004) PLE functions: aggregate remix repurpose feed forward It's interesting to see this perspective on the PLE where it is part of the Connectivism course and students are naturally motivated (or required) to share. And I feel that Leveraging Networks is Key Skill and the most important Knowledge Worker Skill Gap. There's a fantastic post by Stephen Downes - New Technology Supporting Informal Learning.

Horizontal Learning

Tony Karrer

Call them Personal Learning Environments (PLE) if you want but the key issue here is that they are based on user-centric design. However, knowledge workers and learners are adopting other work and learning techniques and tools because they support knowledge work and learning AND because they are incredibly easy to use, thus, the adoption hurdle is low (see Adoption of Web 2.0 Interesting post. Horizontal technologies for learning.

Using SharePoint

Tony Karrer

However, one thing that was very interesting to find in the discussions is that I feel there is a gap between these patterns for using SharePoint and the idea of helping concept workers address the Knowledge Worker Skill Gap and begin to be able to work and learner better. Possibly its smarter use of Outlook that's the intent from a Microsoft vision of supporting the knowledge worker. I've been having fabulous conversations about using SharePoint.
