Transcript

  • 1. Lifelong Competence Development Graham Attwell
  • 2. We are at present undergoing a deep and prolonged industrial revolution based on digital technologies
  • 3. Profound innovations in technology tend to be reflected in older paradigms
  • 4. for example the ‘virtual classroom’ or the ‘Virtual Learning Environment’
  • 5. Initial thinking on how we could use computers to support competence development in enterprises was also based on old paradigms
  • 6. Take the classroom to the enterprise
  • 7. We found there is little formal e-learning taking place in SMEs
  • 8. Social software is widely used in the workplace for informal learning
  • 9. Most informal learning is learner driven, problem based, or motivated by interest
  • 10. Google is the most used e-learning application
  • 11. most learning is unaccredited
  • 12. people learn through legitimate peripheral participation
  • 13. Knowing is .... located in relations among practitioners, their practice, the artefacts of that practice, and the social organization…of communities of practice Lave and Wenger, 1991
  • 14. Lurking is a means of becoming integrated in distributed communities of practice
  • 15. In such communities of practice formal learning materials are seldom used
  • 16. The Challenge is how to use social software to support Lifelong Competence Development
  • 17. Personal Learning Environments have the potential to meet such a challenge
  • 18. PLEs are not another substantiation of educational technology but a new approach to learning
  • 19. A response to pedagogic approaches which require that learner’s e-learning systems need to be under the control of the learners themselves.
  • 20. and recognise the needs of life-long learners for a system that provides a standard interface to different institutions’ e-learning systems, and that allows portfolio information to be maintained across institutions.
  • 21. PLE are based on the idea that learning will take place in different contexts and situations and will not be provided by a single learning provider
  • 22. Using whatever tools and devices which the learners choose
  • 23. “ the heart of the concept of the PLE is that it is a tool that allows a learner (or anyone) to engage in a distributed environment consisting of a network of people, services and resources. It is not just Web 2.0, but it is certainly Web 2.0 in the sense that it is (in the broadest sense possible) a read-write application.” Stephen Downes, 2006
  • 24. The promise of Personal Learning Environments could be to extend access to educational technology to everyone who wishes to organise their own learning.
  • 25. it offers a portal to the world, through which learners can explore and create, according to their own interests and directions, interacting at all times with their friends and community
