Open Learning Network vs Informal Learning Environment

E-Learning Provocateur

In the comments section of my previous post, Mike Caulfield kindly pointed me to the article Envisioning the Post-LMS Era: The Open Learning Network by Jonathan Mott. I was immediately interested because, like me, Mott is striving to bridge the gap between the organisation’s LMS and the learner’s PLE. Mott’s blueprint is the Open Learning Network (OLN). Mine is the Informal Learning Environment (ILE).

PLE bargaining

Those attending the PLE Conference found themselves quickly immersed in discussion, dialogue and debate over the nature and ethos of the personal learning environment. The Twitter stream alone went wild, and by midday on the second day there had been over 5000 messages inserted into the #PLE-BCN hashtag stream. Assessment and accreditation of learning were discussed, as was the curriculum. Image source Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

New learning environments: The challenge and the promise #EDENchat

Learning with 'e's

In recent years, education has evolved to the point where learning can take place anywhere and at any time, usually beyond the walls of the traditional learning space. New trends have emerged including blended learning , personalised learning environments ( PLEs ) Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), mobile learning and the flipped classroom.

If we dispense with online courses in favour of PDFs, how can we incorporate interactivity into the learning experience? Enter the Informal Learning Environment (ILE).

In this sense, the pedagogy is constructivist. Unlike a PLE, an ILE is communal. Informalise learning.

I have made it up over the Alps by train into the sleepy Austrian town of Villach, where we hold the annual Interactive Computer Aided Learning Conference (ICL). Every year the ICL conference seems to be veering more toward e-learning and away from computer science, which I think is a good thing. We need to concentrate more on the learning and less on the technology - more on the pedagogy and less on 'this is the technology and this is what it does'.

Theories for the digital age: Self regulated learning

Learning with 'e's

Informal and self regulated learning are defining characteristics of 21 st Century education. Various commentators suggest that as much as seventy percent of learning occurs outside of formal educational settings (Cofer, 2000; Dobbs, 2000; Cross, 2006). One challenge for education providers is to decide whether they will support the desire of students to self regulate their learning activities using personal technologies.

Personalizing Web Access " WebTools For Learners

Web Tools for Learners

That has been my experience in my own learning. Which computer we use is important, but knowing how to set up our PLE (Personal Learning Environment) or, the term I prefer, our PLWE (Personal Learning and Working Environment) is foundational. All learned, I’ll add, over years of chatting with others and reading about what the possibilities are in this ever changing web world. and its learning and educational possibilities. learning.

From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management. E-Learning Generations. version française ) In recent years I have been working on two major concepts:first, the connectivist theory of online learning, which views learning as anetwork process; and second, the massive open online course, or MOOC , which isan instantiation of that process.
