Learning with 'e's: My awesome PLN

Learning with 'e's: My awesome PLN | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
Steve Wheeler blogs about his 'awesome PLE' and the new things he discovers through Twitter and other online social environments. I really like this section from the end of his post.

"Anyone who hoards knowledge in today's connected society is deluding themselves that that can actually benefit them in any way. It won't. Give what you have learnt away. Share it with your friends. Make it free to all those who are interested. You won't lose anything, but you will build stronger social and intellectual ties with your community of practice and interest, and as you share your own knowledge, you will discover that it comes back to you with interest."

Let's get sharing!

Clive on Learning: Questioning social media

Clive on Learning: Questioning social media | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it

"The recent arrival of a new social network in the form of Google+ has given cause for reflection from some long-serving social media users and advocates. ...

More remarkably, George Siemens, the founding father of connectivism, reports how he is losing interest in social media: ...

I must admit to having felt similarly fatigued at the prospect of engaging with Google+. No way did my life need another social network. It's hard enough as it is to keep up with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. But the Google offering is significant. It contains some interesting innovations. And as someone who is expected to know about these things, I could not ignore it. Already I am in a network with several hundred people on Google+ who are doing the same as me - giving it a go."

elearnspace › Losing interest in social media: there is no there there

"Google+ was a bit of a breaking point for me. After recreating my online social network ( largely based on blogs from early 2000) in Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Quora, G+ was a chore. I spent a few weeks of responding to G+ friend requests, trying to engage with a few people, posting a few random links, all the while trying to upkeep (occasionally) Twitter and (almost never) Facebook. I’ve concluded that most of the hype around social media is nonsense and that people, particularly the self-proclaimed social media elite are clothing-less. Sure, I’ll still continue to participate in those spaces periodically – as soon as this post is done, I’ll tweet it and share it on G+. Beyond that, however, social media is getting credit for things it’s merely flowing, not actually creating."
