Hi everyone!

I work in L&D in Canada. I came to these spaces in 2011 (and came to know Jeff) through my participation in Alec Couros’ open boundary graduate course on social media and open education at the University of Regina in Saskatchewan, Canada. I've spent most of the past two years since then playing with the applicability of PLNs and cMOOCs within the learning organization. In fact, I got into the trenches earlier this year to plan/run/research #etmooc , an independent open boundary effort Alec initated for learning professionals of all kinds, along with the help of a number of others (including Jeff).

I’m juggling a number of projects outside of work right now and I may only be able to contribute piecemeal. That said, I would like to be able to both share and learn from others’ and my own experiences fostering networked thinking capacity and/or drawing upon external PLN expertise within the organizational context (I’m also very interested in examining these ideas from a critical perspective).

I’ll admit now to having a habit of using Twitter more often than G+, too, so please feel free to chat with me there at @AlisonSeaman.

I look forward to learning and sharing with you all.

Fascinating stuff!
Graphing Information Flow In Your Networks

What we're currently implementing is a way to track and monitor information flow across your own networks. This information will only be available to you and not stored in our Databases.

The following example is from +Lee Smallwood 's networks on Google+, Twitter and Facebook

We'll keep you posted when these features become fully implemented

Hi! I'm an L&D professional in Regina, SK with an interest in open, online learning, online connections and personal learning networks (I authored a piece on the latter for Hybrid Pedagogy). I have been both a learner in a connectivist Massive Open Online Course (cMOOC)--EC&I 831 at the University of Regina--as well as a planner, facilitator, mentor (among other things) for recent a cMOOC offering, #etmooc

Nice to see some familiar faces here--looking forward to getting to know others!

«When tech folks break down boundaries and make connections to people across institutions, they are not just building better code for their company. They are actually making certain that they are relevant to the industry. By increasing the flow of information, they guarantee that they continue to learn and develop as professionals. When teenagers experiment with producing content that flows across the network or work to achieve ways of limiting the interpretation of certain content, they aren't just engaged in teenage practices of privacy and publicity. They're learning how to make sense of the networks of public life, a skill that they don't even realize they will need to be professionals in today's workforce.» -- danah boyd, http://www.danah.org/papers/talks/2013/ASTD2013.html
