Okay – I didn’t go to eLearning Guild in Boston … now I’m sorry that I didn’t … after reading a bunch of items about who was there and what was discussed … Damn!
Among the items that have piqued my curiosity … PLEs, or ple (non-capitalized) … Personal Learning Environments …
Brent Schlenker has a bit of a quick wrap up ..
He references an excellent article here
Clive Shepherd gives his take
And Jay Cross weighs in with his thoughts
Tony Karrer offers his thoughts
There’s a lot to read and think about with these posts (and beyond) … Two things strike me:
- I have to consider myself as a learner – much more than as a coach, or instructor, or designer. And I mean – really have to grok that I’m a learner … not just give it ‘lip service’ … I mean to deeply and intuitively know and act as a learner in my work.
- I already have a personal learning environment – I’m just not aware of it all the time. This goes beyond the tools I use – it includes my network of coworkers and clients.
