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 | MyEdu&PLN | 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.

‘Traditional’ (here) means centrally dictated, curriculum based teaching.“Contemporary” (here) means teacher driven, student-centric teaching.Traditional teaching focuses on short term recall, and is highly focused on measurability.Contemporary teaching focuses on students taking ownership of their learning and using real, useful materials.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 24, 2013 11:03 PM

When automation began to replace farm workers over a century ago, there were only minor protests. The industrial age was replacing farm jobs with manufacturing jobs and the phenomenon was gradual compared to the disruption we are seeing today. In 1800, 90% of the American work force worked in agriculture. In 1900, that number had declined to 41%. In 2000, it was around 2%. Today there are more app developers than farmers in the United States. Seven years ago the job of app development was relatively unknown and unneeded. Android smart phones and iphones had not yet reached the market.

Education, the practice of embedding information and systems of thinking and acting into human beings, is beginning to appear as one of the final bastions of resistance to the rise of automation. Across the country and around the world, classroom instruction still looks and feels much as it did over a century ago. A solitary teacher stands up in front of a passive collection of seated students and lectures to them in an analog stream of words, occasionally augmented by symbols and images scratched on a board.  Moore’s law has an amazing exponential effect on every industry it touches, except education, where there are systems and policies that appear to slow technology adoption.

How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10

Let us agree, therefore, that regardless of age or situation, the learning process is one in which any learner can utilize formal, informal and social means to actually learn. It has nothing to do with generational divides.

If we were to re-categorize the foolish Prensky and Tapscott terms of Net Generation, Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants into a classification that encompasses all ages and takes into account the realities of access and participation levels, we might use the following:

I allways felt that the term of digital natives was rather about the older generation not understanding what is happening and being intelligently lazy about learning the new vs. kids beign smart out of the keyboard.

Deep understanding of context is never easy thing to grasp. Fluent use of tools does not produce wisdom alone.
