Beyond Institutions – Personal Learning in a Networked World

Jenny Connected

The thrust of this talk, from my perception, is, as the title suggests, that learning is no longer in the control of institutions, but increasingly personal and in the control of learners as they occupy a networked world. There is a distinction between personal learning and personalized learning. Institutions don’t understand personal learning because personal learning has to be in the control of the learner.

Surface Pro 4 vs. iPad Pro – One Person’s Decision Experience

Michael Sampson - Currents

A few minutes with the iPad Pro was a completely different story. Chris was recently looking for a digital tablet to enable him to return to a paper-free workflow; like a few of us a decade or so ago, he used a Tablet PC with stylus.

Issues that Make Personal Kanban Different

This is the second post in Jim Benson's Personal Kanban series. Personal kanban is going to have some divergence from industrial kanban. There are basic issues that ensure that it's not so easy to just draw some lines on a board and call it a personal kanban.
