I am humbled to once more be voted into Bob Little’s annual list of E-Learning Movers and Shakers for the Asia-Pacific region.
While I take these kinds of lists with a grain of salt, I do not deny that being acknowledged by my peers generates a warm and fuzzy feeling.
Now I would like to shine the light on some of my influencers in this corner of the world. Click the image below to discover my Top 10 movers and shakers in the Asia-Pacific region…
This is by no means an exhaustive list, but rather a hat tip to a small selection of generous education professionals who think out loud and work out loud.
I learn so much from these people, and I dare say you will too.

Ryan…I was going to write this post (or something similar) in response to That List too!! Guess you beat me to it… : ) I am not much of a list person either – they are all inherently subjective, much like your own PLN. But as you say, it’s always nice to be included on one : ). And moreover – always fascinating to see the other people’s lists and discover new people to add to your PLN. I will be exploring your map with interest! Thank you for this (…I guess I’m going to have to write mine soon too now!)
Please do write up your own, Tanya. I too would like to add more people to my PLN, though I suspect we’d have a lot of cross over!
In regards to the subjectivity of lists such as these, that is something that I have indeed considered – The nature of digital influence: http://wp.me/pf1R0-2bG – As I mention in this post, I have no problem with subjectivity, so long as it’s not dressed up as objectivity ;0)
Thanks for including me in your list Ryan, I’m humbled. While I’m not yet familiar with all the people on your list, those that I do know (including yourself) have been a wonderful source of inspiration, ideas and support. Cheers!
My pleasure, Matt.
I have to say Ryan that I’m extremely honoured to be on your list – and if I have any impact on your learning even better :) as always great to connect and I love your work :)
Cheers Nigel. I very much appreciate your thinking and working our loud, so please keep it up!
Thanks Ryan for pointing me to your other post on measuring digital influence. Really insightful and many similar thoughts had run through my mind when I first considered this list and how it may have been determined. Your post exposes the thinking behind these lists – thank you : )
Thanks for saying so, Tanya.
Moving and Relocating In New York – http://www.move4lessllc.net/
When you first read the title, I am sure that you got a chill in your soul thinking of the horror of moving to New York City. (Been there done that, don’t do it at all costs).
However the Empire State is truly the best of the states, housing one of the world’s liveliest cities situated mere hours away from some of America’s best mountains and nature spots. Whether you are moving down the road, across the state or across the country- if you live in New York you want to work with a moving company that actually knows the state and brings with it a history of happy customers and successful relocations.
Move 4 Less is a full service relocation company that has been operating in New York and the entire United States for several years. This is a company that not only has nationwide recognition for long distance moving, this is a company that actually comes with a local understanding and New York know-how.
If you’re moving into, out of or even within New York, the one crucial thing is to keep your timing in mind. While this is true anywhere, it is a law of survival here. Traffic can change with the drop of a hat and even the best-laid plans that seem to account for every possibility fall through in the end.
This is why you want a company like Move 4 Less on your side. First of all, with knowledge of the state, routes and quirks you have an ally on your side right from the start. That same local understanding comes through with their section of movers who specialize in New York City moves. As delicately hinted at above, moving to the Big Apple can quickly become a big headache when you team up with the wrong movers.
What really makes this a full service relocation company is their capability to support long distance moves. By this I mean they have storage, shipping and expertise to help you navigate the whole process. There’s no easy way to move coast to coast in a place you aren’t familiar with. Working with Move 4 Less puts you in the hands of people who have been doing this for years, and above all- they get that it can be an intimidating process, that’s why they are there with you every step of the way.
Any moving process leads you to discover those china plates you stored in your crawlspace about 13 years ago and swore you would just keep them here until you used them for Christmas…and you never got around to it. Move 4 Less has storage units in the state of New York to give you an easy place to stow those excess items. This can be especially handy if you are headed to an “artistic” studio apartment in the city that never sleeps.
In the end, each state has its own quirks and characteristics that only a local will know, so if you can combine a moving company with national capability and local expertise like Move 4 Less then you can breathe a whole lot easier.
