    This paper describes prototype tools to support goal formation and sharing to assist knowledge workers in participating and managing their participation in learning networks. We describe the concept of Charting as the process whereby an individual monitors and optimises their interaction with the people and resources who contribute to their learning and development and how tools to support learning goal articulation and sharing can provide an integrative function for a Personal Learning Environment. The paper then describes the development of prototype tools which support goal articulation and sharing and discusses how such tools might integrate with existing learning and development practices, concluding with some questions for further research.
