By and large, this constitutes John’s Personal Learning Environment (PLE). The coming of technology has naturally exposed us to more entertainment, and at the same time, to more learning. Much of our learning is informal and happens online.

PLEs (Personal Learning Environments) Learning in the World of Technologies

Vignettes Learning

Ray Sims has compiled a good list of resources on Personal Learning Environments ( PLE ). A quick view of PLEs as a learning method is presented by Graham Attwell (view his slideshow ). There are many dimensions to PLE and this thought has yet a long way to evolve. It provides us another way to look at how we can learn best with the abundance of Web 2.0 My concern for now, is the focus of PLEs on learning with and through the technologies.

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.

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.

Do You WANT an LMS? Does a Learner WANT an LMS?

Tony Karrer

I believe we are poised to see this happen in the world of the Learning Management Systems (LMS). I think that folks who are in the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) space have a much better idea of what will come next. In fact, many of us have all created our own Personal Learning Environment by cobbling together using a variety of tools (RSS Reader, Bookmarking, Social Networking, Desktop Search, Web Search, Personal Learning Blog, To Do Lists).

for Learning Professionals is wrapping up. Here are some thoughts on this topic, especially thoughts around social networks for learning. As a teacher, we learn how to manage that. As a student we learn how to ignore the chatter. Still, if I ask, what would I want to have helped learning professionals to know at a base level around social networks and their relationship to learning: What's a social network and what do users do in social networks?
