I think that this list from the Blue Skunk Blog is worth reading:
1. I have the right not to be social 24/7 – either online or in person.
2. I have the right to time for reflection and responsibility for doing so.
3. I have the right to use only the tools that suit my learning style.
4. I have the right to stop using a tool when it is no longer useful.
5. I have the right to not be on the cutting edge all the time or feel I need to always know all there is to know.
6. I have the right to choose those with whom I learn in my personal learning network and responsibility to learn from those with whom I don’t always agree.
7. I have the right and responsibility to disagree and the responsibility to do it professionally.
8. I have the responsibility to become familiar with a tool before sharing it with others.
9, I have the responsibility to share my knowledge with others in my network.
10. I have the right and responsibility to not let online activities keep me from my friends, my family, my workplace, or my community.”
I’d add a list of responsibilties too:
1. I have a responsibility to keep up.
2. I have a responsibilty to learn new things.
3. I am responsible for my own learning, I am not a child of my employer.
4. I am responsible to learn when I need to and not to wit until it’s an emergency.
5. I have a responsibility to understand that technology evolves and evolves with my feedback.
I appreciate the original lists and Stephen’s additions. I’d add these:
- I have a responsibility to respect all members of my network.
- I have the responsibility to never stop learning.
- I have the responsibility to understand and consider everyone’s POV.
- I have the responsibility to interact, disagree and debate without making it personal.
- I have the responsibility to present myself to my learning network – online and in the physical world – in a genuine, professional manner.
