Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion

Tony Karrer

I've run across a few different posts talking about Personal Work and Learning Environments which I have tentatively started to call PWLE - pronounced p-whale. The reason why I think it's worth us talking about tools and maps and basically what is your PWLE (p-whale) is that it's helpful for us to figure out how to support our own personal work and learning. This is talked about a bit in Personal and Group Learning Using Web 2.0

PWLE Not PLE - Knowledge Work Not Separate from Learning

Tony Karrer

His requirements for a PLE Framework include: Personalization Social features Social filtering I ncorporate various Web 2.0 Flexibility and extensibility Web browser platform Aggregation/Mashups Ease of use Several thoughts jumped out at me: The concept of a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) exists, but actual PLEs only exist as theoretical combinations of skills, methods and tools. Luckily all of the requirements that Mohamed cites apply equally well to a PWLE.

Personal Learning Tools and Technologies

Tony Karrer

Jane Hart has done a great job collecting individual answers to what learning tools and technologies that people use. At the same time, I agree with his call for sharing on these things and "learning over the shoulder" of others. And I also sympathize with the "no its personal" beat down he took.

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

Tony Karrer

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. has changed learning and in reality how it changes tacit work.

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.

Informal Learning Technology

Tony Karrer

There's a fantastic post by Stephen Downes - New Technology Supporting Informal Learning. So as you read this, keep in mind that Stephen was primarily talking about technology that can support a Formal Learning Event that heavily leverages Informal / Social Learning as it's primary mechanism. Training Modalities Stephen tells us at the outset: Online learning today is beginning to be dominated by developments in games, simulations and related technologies.

Learning Visions

Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. Monday, June 11, 2007 Personalization does not equal Personal Ive been catching up this morning on all the recent PLE posts, particularly Tom Haskins recent entries. This got me thinking more about the words "personal" and "personalization". But that does not equal a Personal Learning Environment. And then my real life and learning begins.
