Knowledge, Learning, Community
Interesting issue of Learning Technology, focusing on pervasive learning and usage of sensors in technology enhanced learning. "By using sensors and small computers embedded in learning objects, the current leaning context as well as surrounding learning objects can be identified and considered in order to provide learners with context-based learning experiences by adjusting information, resources and activities to the learners' current context and situation." In particular, I liked the collaborative lifecycle-oriented learning (CoLL) approach (pictured above, from Guo, Zhang and Imai) which to me seems very close to the approach that would be taken to gradually integrate learners into a professional community.
