New and emerging technologies

Learning with 'e's

The video below is the result of that interview, in which I answer questions such as: what emerging technology trends have the greatest potential for learning? What tips you you have for people wanting to invest in emerging technology?

This time it's personal

Learning with 'e's

Personal. That means that when you learn, you do it differently to everyone else. It follows that the tools and technologies you use for learning are those you have selected to use because you are (or should be) comfortable with them, personally. Idiosyncratic.

Is sharing caring? #OpenBlog19

Learning with 'e's

I attended an event in Utrecht, in the Netherlands way back in 2007, at around the time that social media was emerging as a serious learning technology. Together for two days, we discussed how digital technologies and networks could support learning.

Off the rails?

Some prefer to travel in a taxi, or even by using their own personal transport. This is a metaphor for personalised learning, with the personal learning environment supporting an individual's learning. In other words, they need technologies that are networked.

Limitless learning

The personal learning environment (PLE) is still a bone of contention. Over at the Open University of Catalonia, in Barcelona, Ismael Peña-López has been doing some stirling work on theories surrounding Vygotsky's learning model and PLEs.

The personal web

Learning with 'e's

With the Southampton PLE Conference #PLE_SOU at full throttle, I thought it would be a good time to reiterate my views on the personal web. Sound like a PLE? My view is that PWTs sit inside a PLE but they are not the whole story.

#EDENchat Up close and personal

Learning with 'e's

I have written a lot about Personal Learning Environments in the past, especially when they were emerging as a concept, and sounded quite new. What is your experience of using PLEs in your own learning? Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

#LearningIs personal

Learning with 'e's

We all learn differently. Everyone of us has individual needs and personal requirements. Unfortunately, most of us are products of education systems that are based on the industrial model of education which is far removed from personalised learning. Each of us has preferences.

Learner Voice and Choice Leads to Engagement

Leadership Lounge

The current education system was built around teachers being held accountable for their students' learning instead of the students themselves. It puts the responsibility for what is learned in the teachers’ hands versus the learners' hands. Stage One PLE. Stage Two PLE.

Selfie number 10

Learning with 'e's

So I thought - perhaps I should write a blog series about the top ten photos and selfies of people I admire, and who have contributed significantly to my own learning. On the left of the picture is Harold Jarche , who is chair of the Internet Time Alliance and a champion of social learning.

I first met Alec Couros among that amazing gathering of people at the inaugural PLE (Personal Learning Environment) conference in Barcelona, in 2010. Alec is Professor of educational technology at the University of Regina in Canada.

I first met Graham at an event in the UK around 2006, just when I was becoming aware of the potential of social media such as wikis, blogs and social networking platforms as a learning tools. He also heads up the European research agency Pontydysgu (A Bridge to Learning).

GlobalEdCon 2013 Day Four + Helping the New Grassroots Projects

The Learning Revolution Has Begun

During the conference opening sessions we brainstormed as set of grassroots global education projects that we could bring to our personal learning networks to try to get started. Given that our combined network reach is probably in the millions, the idea is to turn our personal learning networks into a large personal action network to make a difference for students right now. Today is day four of the 2013 Global Education Conference.
