PLENK2010
alan, alQpr
Over the last three months I spent a considerable amount of time following the #PLENK2010 Massive Open OnLine Course organized by Dave Cormier, Stephen Downes, Rita Kop, and George Siemens. This post will be an attempt to summarize the impact of that experience and it will be non-static as I will update it from time [...] [Link] 2010-12-06T18:52:49

Personal Knowledge Management
alan, alQpr
The #PLENK2010 topic for  discussion in Week 8 is PKM. I think knowledge is information that someone has effective use of (and in a way it’s the use we “know” rather than the fact). In an institution ‘Knowledge Management’ deals with keeping track of *who* knows how to find and use information (as opposed to [...] [Link] 2010-11-05T20:44:05

Learning Theories
alan, alQpr
. . . are something about which I have no expertise – but that’s never stopped me from sounding off about anything else, so here goes: One of the topics of discussion in today’s #PLENK2010 Elluminate session was the distinction between Constructivist and Connectivist theories of learning. At first Stephen and George almost had me [...] [Link] 2010-09-24T21:24:47

Network Environments for Personal Learning
alan, alQpr
In week 2, the focus of #PLENK2010 shifted from the basic terminology, and emphasis on user “client-side” tools to the “server-side” area of support tools - such as might be provided by an educational institution for example. (These are what I, in a fit of foolish pedantry, identified earlier as the EPL aspect as opposed [...] [Link] 2010-09-24T20:26:34

PLENK10: PEL vs EPL
alan, alQpr
Much of the discussion in the first week of the #PLENK2010 course was devoted to the (often quite subtle) distinctions between the Personal Learning Environment and the Personal Learning Network which it supports (and which is itself part of the personal environment). But there is also some (deliberate?) ambiguity within each of the PLE(orN) concepts [...] [Link] 2010-09-24T06:46:40

PLENK Feeds
alan, alQpr
My Sept 13 post on PLEvsPLN does show up in the link from the #PLENK2010  Feeds List, but never seems to have been captured by the aggregator for the Daily.  So I’m giving it another go here just to see if I’ve set things up properly. [Link] 2010-09-16T23:46:38

PLENK Week 1
alan, alQpr
Week 1 of the #PLENK2010 course on Personal Learning Environments,  Networks and Knowledge is devoted mainly to getting used to the terminology. Among the responses to Dave Cormier’s post in the readings is a post by Viplav Baxi which notes among other things that Cormier’s view of the PLE as a container for the PLN [...] [Link] 2010-09-14T06:55:01
