Understanding personal learning networks: Their structure, content and the networking skills to optimally use them

Understanding personal learning networks: Their structure, content and the networking skills to optimally use them | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Networking is a key skill in professional careers, supporting the individual’s growth and learning. However, little is known about how professionals intentionally manage the connections in their personal networks and which factors influence their decisions in connecting with others for the purpose of learning. In this article, we present a model of personal professional networking for creating a personal learning network, based on an investigation through a literature study, semi–structured interviews and a survey.

What is Education 3.0

What is Education 3.0 | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.

 

Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,[1] and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.

 

Keats' explorations were focused on higher education.[2] Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.[3]

Avoiding Bad Advice From Your Colleagues

Avoiding Bad Advice From Your Colleagues | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Tips on how to ignore, reject, or only pretend to follow terrible guidance. Not all advice is good. Some is outdated, out of context, impractical, even malicious.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 7, 2013 7:40 AM

(From the article): Seek out a champion. The best antidote to bad advice is a trustworthy, decent, supportive, shrewd, and politically powerful mentor. Ideally, your dissertation adviser or your tenure-track mentor would not only give good advice but intervene or deflect the bad variety. When someone else offers a suggestion that seems to be a waste of your time or energy, your champion should be someone who will say, "Don't worry; I'll handle it," and then does.

 

That said, the best advisers, while defending their protégés, don't become ersatz helicopter parents. Years ago, a senior scholar I very much respected told me to remember, when dealing with my own doctoral students, that "you can't and shouldn't drag them across the finish line."

John Michel's curator insight, April 7, 2013 10:53 AM

Don't get caught up in the pressure or drama of a moment. The key to making smart decisions about whether a piece of advice is useful or not is to step back and make a dispassionate cost-benefit analysis, in consultation with people you trust.
