Learning with e's

One of the papers I will be presenting in September is entitled: "Learning Space Mash-up: Toward a Collaborative Personal Learning Environment". It will be presented in the special track on Mashups and Education at this year's Interactive Computer Aided Learning Conference , which as usual, is held in the beautiful Alpine town of Villach, in Austria.

Don't miss the train!

Learning with e's

I'm just about to hop on a train and make my way up to Milton Keynes for the first time, where tomorrow I'm an external examiner for one of the Open University 's PhD candidates. The book is simply and concisely entitled: Web 2.0-Based e-Learning and is aimed at those working in further and higher education. The chapter traces how students represent the structure of their personal learning environments, and their distributed potential.

Peak practice

Learning with e's

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'.

15 essentials for successful learning

Jay Cross

While cleaning up my office this afternoon, I came up this list of essentials for effective informal learning I wrote a couple of years ago for the ASTD Handbook. Most learning is self-directed. Set high expectations, and people live up to them. Conversations are the stem cells of learning. Foster open, frequent, frank conversations both virtually and in person. People learn by doing. Learning is social. DIY Learning

Why Your Organization Needs Collaborative Learning

NovoEd

The “lone wolf” figure is all very well for Westerns and Jason Bourne movies, but when it comes to learning and development, a classroom — whether physical or virtual — full of enthusiastic participants is always a better bet. Research through the years has shown that collaborative learning produces better outcomes than individual or competitive efforts, regardless of cultural, socioeconomic or geographic factors. What do we mean by collaborative learning?

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 concepts and technologies (mashups, widgets, aggregation, OpenID, RSS, etc.) 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.

Learning out loud

Jay Cross

I’m soundly convinced that Learning Platforms are crowding out Learning Programs. This is an inevitable part of moving from Stocks to Flows, from Push to Pull, from institutional control to personal freedom, and from rigid industrialism to flexible, more human work environments. Focus on improving the learning ecology rather than tackle one event at a time. Learning is simply an aspect of getting the job done. A starter list: All learning is self-directed.

Situated learning (learning within context in a community of practice) grows thanks to augmented mobile reality. Virtual classrooms and smart-boards are used in a more student-centered way (not putting all the attention to one person up-front=bad).

Learning with e's

The first decade of the 21st Century was highly significant for personal learning. Such a vast array of new personal devices and web applications was introduced that have become so deeply ingrained in our everyday lives, many of us would probably feel at a loss if we were suddenly transported back to 1999. If we time jumped from then to 2009, the way we now communicate, learn, search for information, share content and consume entertainment would be unrecognisable.

Blurring boundaries

Given that they’ve just turned up as the lowest rated carrier of the major four here in the US, according to leading consumer champion Consumer Reports , it’s a step in the right direction. As I’ve been learning with my colleagues in the Internet Time Alliance , tapping into collective intelligence goes beyond conversations internally to include partners and customers. How do we skill up society to take advantage and shape this environment for the benefit of all?

Google-Assisted “Search� Learning…but pls don’t say “according to Google�

Janet Clarey

Many did not grow up using print encyclopedias and dictionaries like many older (some Gen X, boomer, mature) workers. Although it is a huge part of my personal learning and work environment I’m just well, blah. Don’t you just want to say, “Google is not a person.&# So then I ran across a decent article that I read through and thought I should buck up and revisit the things that make Google such a large part of my life.

Can anybody hear me?

I walked back up the stairs to my desk for a quick cup of tea before the session started. It's a movement against the commoditization of learning and against corporate profiteering. 2) Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs) and in particular Learning Management Systems (LMSs) contribute toward restrictive practices in education and constrain both learner and teacher to operate within a model of learning that is insitutionally beneficial, but does little for the learner themselves.
