Call for Papers

 

BJET Special Issue on e-Leadership

 

Edited by Dr Jill Jameson and Prof Sara de Freitas

 

There is currently no international scholarly journal which effectively covers the interaction between the fields of ‘e-Learning’ and that of ‘Leadership’. This is a vitally important emerging area, given the rapid worldwide expansion in the use of and leadership of e-learning and social media.

 

We therefore invite papers for a BJET Special Issue situated at the interface between these two fields.

 

Deadline for submissions: 31st March 2012

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1111/(ISSN)1467-8535

Illich Revisited: Was the Personal Learning Environment a mistake?

Illich Revisited: Was the Personal Learning Environment a mistake? | Education Research | Scoop.it

From the PLE Scoop-It, with thanks:

 

"The PLE is something which I have been involved with since near the beginning of its emergence in the e-learning world. In our work on the JISC PLE project, the words 'Personal', 'Learning' and 'Environment' were each questions that we asked. What did 'personal' mean? What did we mean by 'learning'? And what was an 'environment'? Our answers to these questions directed our thinking as we grappled with issues surrounding the 'locus of control' of learning and technology, the emergence of web services and the impact on the individual, and the burgeoning growth of technology within the institution. It lead to some thoughtful contributions about the PLE being a concept and not a thing (this despite the fact that we build a 'thing' (see http://www.reload.ac.uk/plex/ ) to explore the concept! - which possibly confused everyone...)

Seems like interesting tool, but it's at early stage of beta now. After all it's a web clipper mixed with notepad with rich formatting. When it comes out of beta, it will be paid I guess. No tagging, no android app (the page claims there is one).
