Michele Martin points to a couple of resources to help bloggers, and teams, think critically. I’m going to play with the first set of questions for a workshop on creating personal learning environments. If you were born before Fonzie jumped the shark, trying new technology may require baby steps with training wheels. Positive self reflection may possibly incite palpable enduring application…or maybe not.
Michele comments that this is something she been thinking about for awhile, “that the beauty and value of many Web 2.0 tools, at least when it comes to staff development, lies in the fact that these tools encourage active content creation and engagement with learning by the participants.So how to make blogging for learning an intentional process?”
Maintaining a learning journal
1. What learning have you accomplished (or are you accomplishing) lately?
a) What experience spawned that learning?
b) What learning did you accomplish from that experience?
c) How can you carry this learning forward to improve your life? Your work?
2. What learning might you accomplish in the near future?
a) What experience might spawn that learning?
b) What learning might you accomplish from that experience?
c) How might you carry this learning forward to improve your life? Your work?
I may use the following set of questions with a team to explore new ways to connect using web 2.0 tools.
Project Management Training and Teambuilding
* What was the learning situation or event?
* What have I learned and how did I learn it?
* How do I feel (good and bad feelings) about what I’ve learned and how I’ve learned it?
* How could I have learned more efficiently/effectively?
* What actions can I take to learn more efficiently and effectively for the future?
* In what ways do I need to change my attitudes, expectations, values and the like to feel better about learning situations?
