Visualizing a Personal Learning Space

I have been working and constantly yapping with friends on this idea of a personal learning space. How can I bring together formal and informal learning, learning communities, resources and those little bits that float around with no particular place to call home?

Now Scott Wilson sketches out a bunch of the junk rumbling around in my brain, calling it a VLE (virtual learning environment). Take a peek: Visualizing VLE. It makes a lot of sense to me. Here's a (too big) img link ...

P.S. I so often get key links from Stephen. I'm really looking forward to meeting him F2F to thank him at Northern Voice next month.

P.S.S. Reading a bit further, there was a link back to a related image from July on CogDogBlog

Nancy -

Make sure you leave in a spot for analog technologies in learning! Many parts of my "personal learning space" are in carefully preserved bits of well-organized but offline paper where I have a place for little bits that float around.

You'd surely find interesting Frankie Forsyth's article entitled "E-learning on a Shoestring - Developing a Solution" and his concept of e-toolkit.

I talked about it in and the original reference can be found here (1.74 Mb)

Ed, of COURSE, paper. As I think you know, I still keep a paper calendar and my doodling book is precious. Sometimes I need these things to intersect electronically and I scan pages.

Ictologist, great link back to Frankie's work. And by the way, Frankie is a she -- a very delightful colleague from Tasmania! (It is a small world)

Thanks to both of you for the comments.
