    Tony Hall is a photographer who became interested in learning through community photography projects with young adults. He created informal learning environments and allowed learners the freedom to set their own agenda. With the increased accessibility of technology, he describes his interests as "thinking about sustainable learning communities, shared learning in public spaces, using social media".

    Tony doesn’t see himself as a teacher. “I got into teaching through not wanting to teach,” he says. “A few people in a youth centre were interested in something I was interested in: photography. They felt that I could probably help them. And being outside school was important. Some of them were unbelievably bright. Some may have been failed by school, but there was a real mix of kids. They weren't much younger than me: I was 21 or 22; they were 16 to 19. Because I was seen as the photographer, I was the key character in that group. I could get stuff as well: enlargers from up in town; I could get film cheap in Soho. That was part of the deal.”
    Tony sees learning as a social activity: “It's to do with relationships. Learning for me is not something you do by yourself — not in the way I do it, anyway. I've always felt I need to learn with other people. I never wanted to use the word "teaching" or being a "teacher". I have to use it to work in institutional spaces, but it's not a word that sat comfortably with me.

    AW: A) you can't get a qualification for it, and B) almost the definition of learning seems to be that you don't enjoy doing it. Those are the two things that make it learning.
    DJ: Or that someone other than you defines the outcome you're supposed to aim for.

    is agile learning?alearning?
    Agile learning is a response to a set of circumstances common across many forms of learning in all sectors. Budgets are tight but, for anyone with a broadband internet connection, there's an abundance of opportunities to learn. The range of open resources for learning and tools for self-organising with other learners now make it viable to create low-cost, flexible learning experiences across an ever-widening range of contexts.
    Agile learning can involve a range of pragmatic steps, rooted in the challenges of achieving a lot with a limited funds. As such, it isn't really one thing; it's an attempt to bring together lots of things that might help learning become more agile. There is no manifesto, no commitment to a particular form of pedagogy or technology. If it's learning, and it's agile, then it's agile learning. That said, there are a few core principles that lend themselves to agility, and which most cases of agile learning share to some degree.

    some degree.
    Open -- Silos are expensive to build and maintain. The materials in them can be hard to find and hard to use in new contexts. By contrast, the learning materials that are developed as Open Educational Resources (OERs) or Open CourseWare (OCW), and the materials that are freely available on blogs, wikis and other websites, lend themselves much more easily to agile learning experiences.
    Embedded in everything -- For learning to be agile, you should be able to do it almost anywhere, and without serious interruption to the rest of your affairs. Broadband access to the Internet, mobile connectivity and everyday objects with built-in learning resources help make this possible. While the digital divide will still be with us for some time to come, access is slowly reaching all areas. With open materials and open technology, you can learn wherever you have Internet access.

    I guess I’m not alone in having experimented with various shapes and sizes of notebook – do you keep everything in one book, or use separate books for work, personal development etc? Keeping a digital record makes it easier to edit and rearrange notes post hoc, and the process of linking between disparate ideas further enriches learning and creativity. In Where Do Good Ideas Come From? Steven Johnson reports how enlightenment-era thinkers kept what they called a “commonplace” book, to transcribe favourite quotations and ideas[1[[#_ftn1|[1]]]. These books were sometimes laboriously indexed to allow different concepts to bleed into each other. But how often do we actually make the effort to go to these lengths?
    For nearly three years now I’ve been using something called TiddlyWiki[2[[#_ftn2|[2]]] to make my notes more flexible, integrated and link-aware. TiddlyWiki is like a single-user wiki site, except that it’s not a site, it’s a single HTML file with some javascript that manages the individual pages (known as ‘tidders’). I keep all my notes on TiddlyWiki from meetings, to-do lists, observations from lectures or videos, website clippings, even the tortuous history of my complaints to my bank. If I enter either the name of another tiddler or a URL, it’s automatically hyperlinked. And every tiddler can be given as many tags as you like to help cross-referencing, navigation and browsing for reflection.

    The fact that TiddlyWiki is just one file makes it easily portable: I carry mine round on a keychain USB stick, which I use on my desktop and notebook computers. If you spend a lot of your life in the cloud, there’s a hosted option – with a different set of security considerations.
    TiddlyWiki was developed by Jeremy Ruston, and is published under an open source licence. It seems to be best known in the developer/geek community, and it’s eminently adaptable and hackable. However, I’ve managed to use nearly all its features, and do basic adaptations, without needing to do any coding.
