Grade Six Teacher "Extraordinaire" : Professional Learning Communities vs Personal Learning Networks | Lorraine Boulos

I think Timothy Scholze, from our etmooc, hits the nail on the head in his post on Google+.  "I really dislike group work because I want to be in control of my learning."  Timothy also says that principals "need to make sure that they are not forcing people together ... Collaboration should be open to choice".

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, February 6, 2013 3:40 PM

This is a post by someone who struggles with the difference between an imposed professional learning community and an optional personal learning network. She notices that, however much sense the community may make, she and her colleagues are wont to participate in it, not so however with the learning network. How come? Lorraine offers the ability to choose, the imposed versus the optional character as the explanation.

 

This post is interesting, first because it illustrates what we already know since Dewey and perhaps even longer, that learner autonomy matters. It is also interesting because Lorraine nor the people who react to her blog seem to be aware of this fundamental tenet of modern pedagogy. It thus illustrates a short-coming of social learning: if nobody knows the pertinent literature, you simply miss out on it. And finally, because this neatly illustrates the predicament of how to structure learning without imposing or how to give people autonomy without just letting them figure out themselves (@pbsloep)

Fully support the importance of choice and the critical component that we often forget ... 'prior knowledge' that leads to understanding of a discussion topic. Something else to consider: if a group of colleagues day to day work experiences have been in the same place doing the same things with the same people ... 'it' is normal. Often, it's not until they join discussions outside of their 'normal' that they grow. Community and network are both important. @principaldd
