3 ways Personal Learning Networks are evolving

3 ways Personal Learning Networks are evolving | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The concept of a Personal Learning Network (PLN) is a familiar concept these days. Yet, the nature of Personal Learning Networks is evolving as the range of tools available to support them increases, and our rapport with those tools becomes more sophisticated.

The aim of this post is to outline the changes that appear to be taking shape, and to offer some practical strategies for teachers to supercharge their Personal Learning Networks.

Wirearchy in the workplace

Wirearchy in the workplace | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

You may not yet be familiar with the term, but you are very likely already experiencing wirearchy to some degree. Jon Husband created the term over ten years ago and defined wirearchy as: “a dynamic two-way flow of power and authority, based on knowledge, trust, credibility and a focus on results, enabled by interconnected people and technology”.


I have conducted research on the internal digital work environments of organizations for nine years, starting in 2006. Each year I publish data and analysis based on input from several hundred organizations around the world. A multi-year perspective shows that organizations are moving towards ways of working that reflect the principle of wirearchy.

5 mLearning Trends: How mLearning changing the workplace

5 mLearning Trends: How mLearning changing the workplace | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Mobile Learning Technology has opened up a whole gamut of options to extend the learning blend. No longer do employees have to rely solely on the usual means of training – be it ILT or e-learning. So much so, that even in organizations which have not yet adopted mobile learning, employees are using their smartphones to informally pull whatever information they can at the time of immediate need. Be it preparing for an interview or gathering the relevant statistics on the way to a meeting, mobiles have become tools of providing ubiquitous support, especially for accessing bite-sized information.

Suddenly, there is a growing urgency both among adopters and non-adopters to board the mobile learning train before it’s too late. Here is a list of 5 ways in which m-learning is currently being used at the workplace:

Top 10 strategic technologies impacting education

Top 10 strategic technologies impacting education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Social and economic pressures are forcing senior education leaders to rethink business models and consider a range of new technologies, to bring down the cost of administering education institutions and scale the business, according to research from Gartner, Inc.

According to Gartner VP and distinguished analyst Jan-Martin Lowendahl, traditional educational business models are being fundamentally challenged by digitalisation.

"An increasing number of technical innovations and technology trends are emerging from within the industry, but most will emerge outside the industry, driven by major forces such as digital business and the consumerisation and industrialisation of IT," said Lowendahl. "Education sector CIOs need to take a broad approach and consider technologies from outside the education community, as well as looking for lessons from their peers. Focus on those that are most appropriate to your institution's strategy."

10 must-watch videos for Flipped Learning

10 must-watch videos for Flipped Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
If must-implement educational trends were narrowed down to a small group, flipped learning would be among the top contenders. But flipped learning doesn’t have to consist of videos of a hand on a whiteboard, and it doesn’t have to discuss how to multiply fractions in monotone—after all, there’s a whole YouTube world out there.

Part of the fun of flipped learning is introducing brief questions on relevant curriculum topics that students can discuss or use to create projects during class. For instance, based on historical definitions, should Pluto be a planet? If some products in the U.S. are identified through numbers, could replication of those numbers be made illegal? In other words, could a number itself be illegal?

It’s these types of short videos, based in research and made for education (with interesting animations and vivid explanations), that can be a solid foundation for inquiry-based learning. They also can provide real-world examples of what’s being taught in schools.

Do you have a favorite video you show your students? Do you think flipped learning can help in inquiry-based or project-based learning? Let us know in the comment section below.

Small is Big: Converting PDFs to eLearning modules | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
What does a PDF bring to mind? Pages and pages of words? Lengthy research documents? Boredom at its peak? And no escape?

Well to some extent that’s true, considering the omnipresent nature of these documents that haunt you everywhere. PDFs have almost become a standard for writing company announcements, policies, terms and conditions, how to’s, newsletters, training material and what not. While some PDFs may be short, quite many of them – such as those used for writing policies & procedures, or for training purposes may be mercilessly long.

5 tricky ways to prepare video presentations for classes

5 tricky ways to prepare video presentations for classes | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it


Every teacher knows that visual aids are a good way to facilitate the learning process and grab students’ attention for a long time. Educators use different posters, videos, slideshows to explain a new topic, provide more details or even test students. Presentations take a prominent part in the visual aids collection. Their main benefit is that teachers can combine various types of content in one presentation: text, images, video clips, music. Saved in a video format, presentations can be easily shown in class, uploaded to YouTube, embedded into a school website, or shared on any other educational resource.

 Several years ago, teachers had a limited choice of software to create presentations. Namely, there was only one tool for all presentation needs: Microsoft PowerPoint. With it, educators created, edited, and showed their presentations to students. The software was often non-responding in the most crucial moment. To say more, unskilled users often corrupted PPT files, did undesired edits, and simply could not show their works in incompatible school PC operating systems. Only a couple years ago, Microsoft added the possibility to save presentations in popular video formats and upload to YouTube. At the same time, there appeared a great deal of free alternatives, which allowed teachers to create video presentations much easier and faster than with PowerPoint. Here are the most prominent of them.

La clave está en la desintermediación de los procesos de producción de información y distribución de información. La desintermediación es buena para múltiples cosas. Primero porque reduce el coste final de una transacción informacional, luego porque acelera el intercambio entre el productor y el consumidor. Finalmente genera toda una nueva oleada de emprendedores digitales que inicialmente actúan por fuera del statu quo industrial y aportan una gran dosis de innovación al ecosistema de la comunicación.

Moodle vs Google Apps para Educación ¿Ser o no ser libre?

Moodle vs Google Apps para Educación ¿Ser o no ser libre? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Google Apps para Educación está pisando fuerte en todas las instituciones educativas. Muestra de lo que digo, es que en mi caso tengo tres cuentas en Google Apps for Educations: una el Aula Mentor del Ministerio de Educación, otra en el Departament d’Ensenyament de la Generalitat de Catalunya y otra en el centro en el que trabajo.

Indudablemente es un conjunto de aplicaciones web que nos permiten la máxima funcionalidad con el mínimo de complicación y sin gasto alguno. Todo un caramelo que se integra perfectamente en la Google Classroom

En frente podemos tener una plataforma Moodle. También gestiono una: AulaRed.

Tanto la plataforma de Google como la de Moodle son diferentes en su uso y mantenimiento pero las dos comparten las funcionalidades de CRM, de LMS, CMS y CLMS (Gestión de usuarios, de contenidos, de objetos de aprendizaje…)

[Infographic] The 9 C's of Digital Literacy

[Infographic] The 9 C's of Digital Literacy | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Today, at my keynote for the California League of Schools Annual Conference North, I will be discussing the 9 C's of Digital Literacy and how to integrate these skills in a Common Core classroom.

We all know that our digital natives are very at ease with technology. In fact, they’re in love with technology, but does that automatically make them digital proficient?

When I originally pondered this question, I began to realize that the 5 C's often discussed in education today - communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and citizenship - needed to be expanded to include these other areas as well: curation, copyright, character and connectedness. I believe that these digital literacy skills are essential for success in today's modern world. It’s more important than ever for educators to teach students how to become digitally literate so that they are career and college ready.

BYOD vs. 1:1 Debate creates opportunities for the device-agnostic designer

BYOD vs. 1:1 Debate creates opportunities for the device-agnostic designer | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Technology is increasingly being integrated in schools, and a hotly debated technical decision is to follow a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) or a 1:1 (schools provide access to standardized devices to each student) strategy. But this same debate has been playing out in the workplace for decades.

Two rooms illustrationCorporate mobile devices of twenty plus years ago were notebooks and pagers. Now employees use laptops, Smartphones, tablets, MP3 players, game consoles, among others, for workplace activities. Initially, employers generally supplied these devices following a 1:1 strategy, meaning the devices were chosen, subsidized, and owned by the employer. The BYOD strategy, however, is starting to come into play in the workplace more frequently—either intentionally or because employers cannot stop people from bringing their personal devices to work and connecting them to work devices.

We are a system, you cannot I-solate yourself, so surf and co-create the wave of our collective grace

We are a system, you cannot I-solate yourself, so surf and co-create the wave of our collective grace | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
This could be one of the fundamentals of this blog: it takes two to tango and we are all part of a (same) system. The ‘I’ has a much lesser role to play to in our WElcoming world than we perhaps like to admit.

According to Eric Weiner’s study about the geography of bliss, happiness in Thailand is not a concept framed around unique individuals but around entire families, lineages. The goal, to be happy is not so much to be the most successful person on earth, but to make sure you add your (stepping) stone to make your whole family’s saga richer and better.

Digital Badges / Open Badges Taxonomy

Digital Badges / Open Badges Taxonomy | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Working on the taxonomy of digital badges / open badges is an interesting empirical and conceptual endeavour. I have been looking into different types of badges as part of the “Discussion Paper on Open Badges and Quality Assurance” on which I have been recently working in context of the European Project “Badge Europe” (Erasmus+, Strategic Partnership). Before the first draft of the discussion paper will be open to public for comments and edits, I would like to share the first draft of the taxonomy of digital and open badges. I have proposed a classification based on three categories – (1) content-related: what the badge represents, (2) issuer-related: who issues the badge, and (3) process-related: how the badge was achieved.

This is just a first attempt and I would be very glad to get your feedback on this. Thank you to the authors who inspired my work in this area – Carla Casilli, Hans Poldoja, Grant MacDonald (follow the links to find out more about their typologies), and Nigel Lloyd who is working with us on the “Badge Europe” project.

So here is the first list ready for your comments, extensions and examples in this Google Table!

Ten things I believe about workplace learning

Ten things I believe about workplace learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
For nearly three years, I’ve been exploring social learning, informal learning, and the changing workplace. My beliefs about workplace learning have evolved quite a bit over those years, partly by experimenting with new ideas and learning from the results, both positive and negative. I’ve also grown by narrating what I learn here, whether you call that learning out loud, working out loud, or showing my work. By describing my current thinking and sharing that publicly, I gain deeper understanding through many interactions with insightful people from around the world. Some I know of and respect; many I’ve never met; and many I’ve been afforded the opportunity to meet because I follow this practice. I strongly believe my current understanding and knowledge wouldn’t be as rich without this critical knowledge management practice. But now I’m getting well ahead of myself.
