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 | Faces of Learning | 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.

G'day Olga and greetings from Downunder on the bottom in the middle. That's how I describe Adelaide to colleagues in the USA and Europe :-) Wow Russian that's awesome, may I see it please. Let me know if I can help further. Maybe we can meet on SKYPE. Also I don't think your translation work will be wasted howevert there is a modified Version 3.0 out which is even better. Please visit http://tinyurl.com/padwheelposter3 This is a PDF designed to be an A3 poster as well. All the apps are also linked and it uses QRcodes for scanning by phones etc. You may also find this blog post helpful - please have a look at the Edudemic post http://ow.ly/lKJcK Do contact me if you have any questions. Could I be bold and suggest you translate the entire poster all the content is helpful I believe. I can provide you with a Keynote file (for MAC) which will make it easier. Regards Allan
Olga Evstifeeva's comment, June 7, 2013 7:50 AM
Good evening, Allan, thanks for your respond!
Olga Evstifeeva's comment, June 7, 2013 7:50 AM
I've posted the translation in my blog, here is the link to the post http://pedagogland.ru/ispolzovanie-it-v-sochetanii-s-taksonomiej-bluma.html
The picture is linked with your pdf file at http://www.unity.net.au/padwheel/padwheelposter.pdf, and there is another link in the text to your article in your blog http://www.unity.net.au/allansportfolio/edublog/?p=324

I laid out the translation of the contents of the wheel into the spreadsheet with some short comments (primarily concerning the SAMR model and levels of IT use in school education - column 1) and added a few apps and online services with a few links to some brief guides (the last column, for the teachers who are probably not familiar with some of them yet :) as iPads are not widely used at our schools yet (maybe in the nearest future), so apps for desktops or laptops are more actual for us by far.

That's great that you gave me the link for the P_Wheel 3.0, thank you! Right, motivation along with graduate features should be in the core of the wheel. I'd be happy to translate the entire poster, thanks for the suggestion, the problem is that I don't use Mac. What can we do here? my email: olga@dohnsco.com
Best regards

Mission US | THIRTEEN

Mission US | THIRTEEN | Faces of Learning | Scoop.it
Mission US is a multimedia project that immerses players in U.S. history content through free interactive games.Mission 1: “For Crown or Colony?” puts players in the shoes of Nat Wheeler, a printer’s apprentice in 1770 Boston. They encounter both Patriots and Loyalists, and when rising tensions result in the Boston Massacre, they must choose where their loyalties lie. In Mission 2: “Flight to Freedom,” players take on the role of Lucy, a 14-year-old slave in Kentucky. As they navigate her escape and journey to Ohio, they discover that life in the “free” North is dangerous and difficult. In 1850, the Fugitive Slave Act brings disaster. Will Lucy ever truly be free? In Mission 3: “A Cheyenne Odyssey,” players become Little Fox, a Northern Cheyenne boy whose life is changed by the encroachment of white settlers, railroads, and U.S. military expeditions. As buffalo diminish and the U.S. expands westward, players experience the Cheyenne's persistence through conflict and national transformation. In Mission 4: “City of Immigrants,” players navigate New York’s Lower East Side as Lena, a young Jewish immigrant from Russia. Trying to save money to bring her parents to America, she works long hours in a factory for little money. Should she go on strike to protest conditions, and risk losing her job? Mission 5 – about the Great Depression – is slated for release in late 2015. Join the conversation and get updates about Mission US on Facebook and Twitter. For more information, visit the Help page. To share your feedback, email us via the contact form on this site. Thanks for playing!
