PWLE Not PLE - Knowledge Work Not Separate from Learning

Tony Karrer

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. I mentioned quite a while ago (in Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion and Personal Work and Learning Environments ) that: Knowledge work is not separate from learning.

Topic Diversity

Clark Quinn

Through my PWLE methods (reading blogs, etc.) Through the post on Conference Balance an in thinking about the keynotes at ASTD that I attended ( ASTD Keynote - Malcolm Gladwell , Dysfunctional Teams ), I realized that one of the reasons that I like going to conferences is it forces me (sometimes slowly and painfully) to get exposed to a diversity of topics. I would not have run across the concepts in Dysfunctional Teams.

Personal Learning Tools and Technologies

More important are the methods. But probably most important are the mental models or frameworks that people use to understand what they need and turn it into methods and tools. There is certainly value in sharing methods and models. A little on methods.

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. What are the most important methods to adopt in addition to the tools? First, let me say that we all have a tool set and a set of methods and frameworks that go along with that tool set. We may not think of this in terms of a personal learning environment and a particular set of methods, but it's there.

Learned about Learning in 2009

Tony Karrer

When I look at my particular skills, methods and tools for 2009 and compare them to 2008, I would say that it’s mostly a question of degree of use and certainly my use of Twitter has grown. It’s very powerful stuff and an important extension to my PWLE. It’s always fun at the end of the year to go back and take a look at what you’ve been working on, what you’ve learned during the year. I’ve been doing this the past few years.
