Research Activity Update

Helene Fournier, researcher on the NRC PLE research project, will be soliciting participation from those who have described themselves as ‘lurkers' in PLENK2010, so that they may share their reflections and experiences (the good, bad, and ugly) of the course so far. Participation is entirely voluntary. A separate targeted email will follow with more information on how to participate.

Week 9: PLE/Ns in the classroom (PLE/Ns and blended learning)

Though learning online has become increasingly important in recent years, the dominant form of instruction today remains focused on the classroom. This week we look at what the use of personal learning environments or networks can do for classroom learning.

Feeling uncomfortable with Personal Knowledge Management
Rita Kop (fredkop) , November 7, 2010.
Harold Jarche illuminated participants on #PLENK2010 on his ideas of Personal Knowledge Management on Friday. Rita's are quite different. She has problems reconciling knowledge with management. [Link] [Comment]

Feeling uncomfortable with Personal Knowledge Management
noreply@blogger.com (Welsh Cloggy), Observations about learning, knowledge and technology
Harold Jarche illiminated participants on #PLENK2010 on his ideas of Personal Knowledge Management on Friday.
