Dont Waste Your Time

One of the best examples I’ve come across, when looking at how you can utilise social media to form and develop a personal learning network is from my friends Sue Beckingham ( @suebecks ) and David Walker ( @drdjwalker ). Time to put that right – here it is: Using social media to develop your own personal learning network from Sue Beckingham. References.

The evolution of personal learning environments

Origin Learning

A personal learning environment refers to the tools, technologies, resources etc. that a person uses at the individual level to build on his knowledge base. By and large, this constitutes John’s Personal Learning Environment (PLE). The coming of technology has naturally exposed us to more entertainment, and at the same time, to more learning.

Anatomy of a PLE

Learning with e's

Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) do exactly what they say on the can - they are personal to each individual, created by them, owned by them, used by them within their lifelong learning. Some argued strongly for sole student ownership, vehemently opposed to any institutional meddling in a personal learning environment. What does a PLE look like?

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Tom Spiglanin

When I started using Twitter for my professional growth and development, I didn’t realize that I was also starting to build my personal learning network. simply found myself tweeting at a learning and development conference using its hashtag and others began connecting with me. even gave it my own name: “On-fire learning.” It wasn’t very useful.

Personal Learning Environments (PLE) have been hot news for a couple of years now. My PLE is not very well structured to say the least, in fact chaos is my middle name when it comes to PLE. But I can no longer postpone the (re)structuring of my PLE for the simple reason that I am increasingly engaged in various projects that demand slightly different foci.

A Deliberate and Effective PLE

Thinking about my own PLE in relation to the reading led me to developing my own PLE Model. Is your PLE Deliberate?

Call it a PLE if you like, to me it is connectivist learning.

This time it's personal

Learning with e's

Personal. That means that when you learn, you do it differently to everyone else. It follows that the tools and technologies you use for learning are those you have selected to use because you are (or should be) comfortable with them, personally. These tools, services and technologies become a part of your personal learning environment or PLE.

Some prefer to travel in a taxi, or even by using their own personal transport. This is a metaphor for personalised learning, with the personal learning environment supporting an individual's learning.

Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) are made up of more than web tools. My Personal Learning Network is essentially the people I connect with in order to learn what I need when I need it.

Stephen Downes on reclaiming personalised learning The overall theme is that education is in for a reality check. The reality check he wants to share is that education and educational companies must face the fact that they no longer own the learners nor their learning. To teach is to model and demonstrate, to learn is to reflect and construct. Learning is a form of recognition.

Everyone has one

Learning with e's

Everyone has one - a personal learning environment, that is. We all learn. We all use tools to help us learn.

And of course my much revered blogger Tony Karrer has many posts on PLE. guess my top 10 learning tools are basically my personal learning environment. To define my PLE further, I could probably identify the blogs/sites I visit more often for learning. In the process I discovered Tom Haskin ’s blog and quickly added it to my PLE.

In the late 1990’s knowledge management was part of our solution suite at the Centre for Learning Technologies ( CLT via The Wayback Machine). The Centre for Learning Technologies is an applied research, consulting and resource centre for the use of new media in learning, knowledge management, and workplace performance support. My own area of interest was PKM with web tools, though of course a PKM system can be unplugged. I was also seeing the similarities with personal learning environments: PLE. personal learning environment.
