Elsua

I was really keen on confirming whether 2016 was the year of mobile or whether it was just another frustrating experience like the one I blogged about nearly 5 years ago. Is 2016, at long last , the year of mobile computing ? .

Teamwork Needs Healthy Friction to Collaborate and Get Work Done More Effectively

Elsua

Over 4 years ago, Bob McMilan once asked me, while he was interviewing me for his Wired piece on ‘ IBM gives birth to amazing e-mail-less man ’ (as part of the #NoeMail experiment ), where did my inclination to connect, learn, collaborate and work together closely with other people come from?

#NRC01PL – What does personal learning mean to me?

Jenny Connected

This is the question we have been asked to respond to in Week 4 of the Personal Learning MOOC (#NRC01PL). In other words, freedom to learn when, where, how, and with whom I want to. For example, if part of my PLE is a learning management system (LMS), then I will experience constraints within that system, but ideally it will have been my choice to have an LMS within my PLE.
