Work is learning, and learning is the work. I have repeated this hundreds of times over the past six years and I know some people may think it is a trite statement. But the fact that learning is usually supported by an organizational department that has less influence than sales, marketing, operations, or information technology, shows that learning is not a priority in most enterprises. It’s often bolted on after the major decisions have been made. Several times on consulting engagements I have been perceived as ‘the learning guy’ dealing with a minor aspect of the ‘real’ project.

Work is learning and learning is the work. I said it in Informal Learning ten years ago. Now I"m calling work/learning NetWork.

by Joe Moses: The purpose in this post is to say why the PLN definition spectrum is worth thinking about when preparing students for learning.

PLNS are completely personal (no common definition) - PLNs have defifned characteristics (some networks aren't PLNs)

Great article that tells us when to use which already familiar social networking tools for Working Out Loud. Twitter while you're still engaged in the activity, LinkedIn when you've had some time to crystallize, etc. Facebook getting more and more relevant for WOL!
Also, the article has links to many great examples.

Personal Learning Networks and Organisations

Personal Learning Networks and Organisations | Skills and Literacies for Learning in a Digital and Connected World | Scoop.it

The biggest challenge for organisations as they look at adopting PLNs, is that there are so many ways for people to connect, that it can be difficult to be supportive without being specific about the tools which people could or should use and the manner in which they could and should connect.  What works for one person will not work for another when it comes to their PLN.

This is no small challenge.  It will require time, effort, and stepping outside of your comfort zone, but I guarantee you that it will be rich with learning experiences and meaningful interactions with interesting people.

 

Helen Crump's insight:

This seems like a great idea. However, the article is unclear as to the process involved for providing evidence for the badge.
