Professional ecosystem

What Connected Educators do Differently has answers for educators looking to start and cultivate a professional (or personal) learning network (PLN) to stay current and connected. Following are key takeaways from the book and from two other resources that go beyond the basics of starting a PLN. Connected Educator Defined: “Being a connected educator is not a formal title…we define connected educators simply as ones who are activity and constantly seeking new opportunities and resources to grow as professionals” (Whitaker, Zoul, Casas, 2015, page xxiii) Practical, concise and geared to the novice, the book provides advice and examples on how to start and build a personal network using digital tools.

Here’s your Friday moment of EduZen to think about over the weekend… Frank Smith’s The Book of Learning and Forgetting is one of those reads that had me nodding my head the entire way through it.

The “Official” Theory of Learning (Will Richardson) 2016

In it, he outlines two theories of learning. One, the “classic” view, goes like this: „Modern Workplace Learning“ & Rollen, Aufgaben & Kompetenzen von Learning Professionals. The Future of Work and Learning 1: The Professional Ecosystem. “Each of us is the center of the universe.

The Future of Work and Learning 1: The Professional Ecosystem

So is everyone else.” e e cummings In my previous post I looked at the individual’s perspective of workplace learning and included a graphic showing how individuals learn at and for work in 10 main ways. Essentially, I was describing a Professional Ecosystem (PES) – a set of organisational and personal, interconnecting and interacting elements – content, people, software, services, apps, etc – that helps an individual. Workplace Learning: The Individual’s Perspective. A few weeks ago I published a series of posts that looked at how we learn at work and how to support these different ways of learning.

Workplace Learning: The Individual’s Perspective

This was a very L&D-centric view of workplace learning, with training at the centre and the outer – and larger – concentric circles containing the other ways of learning at and for work. In this post, however, I want to consider the Individual’s Perspective of Workplace Learning. First of all, please note, I have not used the word Learner here, because for the Individual – the employee, the worker – it is clear it is not all about the learning but about the work.

The Difference Between Digital Literacy and Digital Fluency. Update 6/13/2012: We finally finished our book on this topic.

It is available in print here, and in Kindle format here. You can also download a sample chapter here: here (601k PDF) Literacy and fluency* have to do with our ability to use a technology to achieve a desired outcome in a situation using the technologies that are available to us. This applies to our ability to use a hammer, nails and wood to build the house that we intend to build: Hochschulisches Lernen – eine analytische Perspektive (Rüdiger Rhein, 2015) Das Ziel des Studiums ist idealerweise19 eine reflektierte Auseinandersetzung mit dem jeweiligen Fach und seinen spezifischen Formen der Erschließung von Sachverhalten.

Hochschulisches Lernen – eine analytische Perspektive (Rüdiger Rhein, 2015)

Studieren bedeutet, die Eigenstrukturen akademischer Disziplinen hinsichtlich ihrer epistemischen, poietischen und praktischen Potenziale verstehend anzueignen und praxeologisch zu erschließen.20 Die Eigenstrukturen ergeben sich aus der Tatsache, dass den jeweiligen Fächern spezifische Grundideen der Gegenstandskonstitution und der Gegenstandsbehandlung zugrunde liegen; die Fächer pflegen je spezifische Herangehensweisen an Problemlösungen und Bearbeitungsmodi von Aufgabenstellungen und haben hierfür typische, disziplinbezogene Denkweisen, Konzepte, Methoden und Techniken entwickelt. Studieren als verstehendes Aneignen des Eigen-Sinns von Wissenschaft bedeutet, zu begreifen, auf welche Fragen und Problemstellungen Wissenschaft jeweils eine Antwort geben will.

The Other 21st Century Skills (Jackie Gerstein) Many have attempted to identify the skills important for a learner today in this era of the 21st century (I know it is an overused phrase).

Personalized learning is happening now and will expand significantly worldwide in 2016. Yet there are still different definitions for personalized learning and even some have concerns about what it means for kids. We know the main focus of personalized learning is our kids.

So we are focusing on three main concepts for these trends we see for 2016 starting with learners, the teachers, and pulling together everything with culture and community that encompass the 10 Trends. Learners 1. Was bewegt Learning Professionals im Themenfeld „Informelles Lernen“? 3 Themes Defining The Future of Education. A society’s view of education is simply a reflection of the broader culture. Back when America was far more homogeneous and agrarian, we developed schools that reflected those values and ideals, right down to the calendar we taught kids on. I would argue one reason there is such confusion over where education should go in the future in this country, is because we now have so many competing visions of what our culture is and how that should collectively define us in the 21st Century.

But if you step back, remain objective, and keep your eyes open, what is happening in the world today is pretty clear. And when we understand the direction of the broader world, the role and direction of education comes into focus. The L&D world is splitting in two (Jane Hart) It is now very clear to me, that the world of L&D is splitting in two. There are those who think that the old ways of training are still valid and sufficient for today’s workforce, and there are those who realise that the world has moved on and a new approach to supporting workplace learning is essential. The first group of L&D professionals I refer to as Traditionalists, since they cling onto 20th century views of Training & Development: They focus on classroom training and/or e-learning as the only valid way to transfer knowledge into people’s heads.

Moving from a Training Culture to a Learning Culture (Jane Hart) I’ve just read an interesting post on Stephen Gill’s blog about how PwC Canada is striving for a Learning Culture. In fact I’m seeing this approach becoming a growing trend in a number organisations that recognise that in the modern workplace it’s no longer just about training people, but building a true learning culture that promotes and supports all the ways we learn at work. These organisations also recognise that role of L&D is evolving in a number of new ways from its traditional role of creating, delivering one-size-fits all content and managing/measuring learning outcomes (in some sort of LMS) towards … Although the first involves modernising existing training practices, the second requires quite different approaches:

3 C’s for Learning and Leading on Social Media ( Tanmay Vora) With advent of social media tools, our ways of learning, sharing and leading have undergone a sea change. Blogs, Twitter, Massively Open Online Courses (MooC’s) and a variety of other tools are nicely complementing books and classroom based learning. Social Media is a great platform to learn, share, be a part of learning communities and build your thought leadership. Here are three C’s that can help you do just that. Create meaningful stuff and add your unique voice to it. Share what you learn. Sketch Note: 3 C’s for Learning and Leading on Social Media ( Tanmay Vora)
