first a question
First a question ...

How many people have:

  • Heard of a Personal Learning Environment (PLE)?
  • Used a PLE?
what is a ple
What is a PLE?

A Personal Learning Environment is not:

  • A specific software application
  • A system for creating or delivering e-learning content
  • A learning management system
  • A content management system
  • A virtual learning environment (in its strictest sense)
  • A Personal Learning Environment is:
  • A concept, based on Web 2.0 technology
  • A collection of tools and systems
  • Browser based
  • An environment where learners access information from a variety of sources
  • Personal to the user – learner-centric
  • Distributed and social

ples definitions
PLEs – definitions

A Personal Learning Environment is a facility for an individual to access, aggregate, configure and manipulate digital artefacts of their ongoing learning experiences.

Personal Learning Environments are systems that help learners take control of and manager their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to:

  • Set their own learning goals
  • Manage their learning – both content and process
  • Communicate with other in the process of learning

And thereby achieve their learning goals.

PLEs are based on the idea that most learning takes place informally, in different contexts and situations, and not by one single provider.

Benefits of PLEs

PLEs allow you to:

  • Create a repository of material about a particular subject matter
  • Communicate and collaborate
  • Organise material in a way that is personal to you
  • Learn formally and informally
  • Learn at a time and place to suit you
  • Learn throughout your life
  • Use whatever tools and devices you want (eg mobile phone, PS3, Wii)
  • Interact with friends and wider communities
  • Explore a subject in an informal manner
  • Reflect on your learning
  • Submit work for assessment and review
  • And much more ...

drawbacks of ples
Drawbacks of PLEs
  • Numerous tools may be overwhelming
  • Skill levels
    • Computer literacy
    • Information literacy
  • Differing pedagogical viewpoints
  • Access to technology and software may be limited
  • Reconciling the structured nature of formal education with the informal attributes of networked learning
  • Data privacy and security issues
  • Still mainly linked with FE/HE sectors
  • Take-up in the workplace
  • Do blogs, wikis, and podcasts qualify as a PLE?
  • Just how responsive and intuitive are PLEs?

a few questions
A few questions ...
  • Are we in danger of relying on “total technology”?
  • What about the digital divide?
  • Should we rely on technology alone to promote knowledge and social inclusion?
  • Do we have the infrastructure to support it?
  • What about diversity issues?
  • What about assessment and accreditation of learning?
  • Is it truly global?
  • If we build it, will they come?
