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?

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.

Models For Designing Your Personal Learning Environment

The eLearning Coach

A personal learning environment (PLE) is a solution for keeping up with the rapid pace of knowledge change. In adult learning, I think of it as a self-directed and evolving environment of tools, services and resources organized by a person seeking a […] Post from: The eLearning Coach Models For Designing Your Personal Learning Environment.

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.

“One small step for e-learning technology, One giant leap for the e-learning industry.” Tin Can API (or ‘Experience API’) is one of the most extensively discussed technical topics amongst learning professionals all over the world today. This is mainly because of the relevance it carries in today’s world of ‘Learning Transformation’. INTRODUCTION.

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.

The Importance of Personalized Learning – Part 1 of 3 – K12

Over the next weeks, I will be writing about personalized learning and how that applies to different learning populations. At first I’ll address K12 learning, then I’ll address how personalization affects a high-skill knowledge workforce, and a service workforce. Is K12 ready for Personalized Learning? Let’s start with content.

Off the rails?

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. Furthermore, unlike traditional formalised education, the personal learner determines his or her own destination. Or is there? How's that Amy?

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. Personal learning environments or PLEs, are the collection of tools (not just online) that enable us to connect, create and share content with our own communities of interest and practice.

Personal Learning Knowledge Work Environment

I've been reading a lot over the past few months around Personal Learning Environments and a lot of related material. world that included a post by Bill Ives - Managing Personal Knowledge: Setting a Foundation for Transformation? adoption is getting folks to manage their personal knowledge and adopt practices like blogging for personal knowledge management (PKM) and personal learning. Learning-Knowledge-Work - they really are the same and I need to do them all at once. Certainly PLE and PKM would seem to be too limited, right?

#LearningIs personal

We all learn differently. Everyone of us has individual needs and personal requirements. Unfortunately, most of us are products of education systems that are based on the industrial model of education which is far removed from personalised learning.

PWLE Not PLE - Knowledge Work Not Separate from Learning

Tony Karrer

Mohamed Amine Chatti (a fellow Eddie eLearning nominee) last two posts The LaaN Perspective , and Requirements of a PLE Framework are both interesting posts and worth reading. His requirements for a PLE Framework include: Personalization Social features Social filtering I ncorporate various Web 2.0 Flexibility and extensibility Web browser platform Aggregation/Mashups Ease of use Several thoughts jumped out at me: The concept of a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) exists, but actual PLEs only exist as theoretical combinations of skills, methods and tools.

I have written a lot about Personal Learning Environments in the past, especially when they were emerging as a concept, and sounded quite new. There were posts about the Anatomy of PLEs , their functionality , their role as a counterpoint to the institutional Learning Management System, and also their relationship to MOOCs and Connectivism.

Limitless learning

The personal learning environment (PLE) is still a bone of contention. Over at the Open University of Catalonia, in Barcelona, Ismael Peña-López has been doing some stirling work on theories surrounding Vygotsky's learning model and PLEs. This is all premised on whether we conceive of a PLE as a learning philosophy rather than simply a set of tools as most people see it.

PLE bargaining

Those attending the PLE Conference found themselves quickly immersed in discussion, dialogue and debate over the nature and ethos of the personal learning environment. The Twitter stream alone went wild, and by midday on the second day there had been over 5000 messages inserted into the #PLE-BCN hashtag stream.

The personal web

With the Southampton PLE Conference #PLE_SOU at full throttle, I thought it would be a good time to reiterate my views on the personal web. Personal Web Tools (PWTs) are thought by some to be synonymous with PLEs (Personal Learning Environments) but the two should not be confused. Sound like a PLE? Where do you go it you want to learn something new?

Personal Learning Resources

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. But as I have tried to articulate in earlier blogposts , my PLE is more than people and tools. Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

Reciprocity learning

I watched this morning's PLE conference (#pleconf) unkeynote by Grainne Conole and Ricardo Torres Kompen, which was streamed live from Aveiro, in Portugal. Self disclosure reveals something personal or subjective about yourself. In the same way, reciprocity learning relies on the willingness of both parties to give freely.

There's been quite a bit of discussion going on around Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) and personal learning environments. Getting back, I've seen quite a few blog posts on the topic: Stephen Downes - Personal Learning I can talk about webs and networks and personal learnings and PLEs but there's a disconnect unless people see themselves as learners rather than teachers. believe that we all have a personal learning environment. and Personal Learning EnvironmentsAnd then over beers.

I just saw a post by George Siemens discussing evolution of PLE concept and pointed me to two posts by Chris Lott based on his initial question - "What does your PLE look like?" - Tired of PLE Flak and I'm not interested in the PLE which then pointed me to a bunch of other posts as well - on the PLE and An audit on where stand with PLEs. Jane Hart has done a great job collecting individual answers to what learning tools and technologies that people use. And I also sympathize with the "no its personal" beat down he took. little on methods.

4 Key Emerging Trends in LMS

Upside Learning

Today, after the rapid evolution of the LMS – hastened by several factors, right from the inclusion of social learning tools, to an ever increasing need for usability – many things have changed, and still continue to change, in the LMS. This trend will benefit not only large companies but even the smallest of the learning organizations. 2.Personal Learning Environment (PLE).

PLE/N Tools

Viplav Baxi Meanderings

especially liked Patterns of personal learning environments, Wilson. Wilson looks at patterns of use of and activity in personal learning tools and learning networks, revising a previous approach which was very functional and tool-specific. One of the ongoing challenges I have is with the constant comparison between LMS and PLE, which I happen to think, is an apples to oranges comparison. They serve different needs and are differently located on the spectrum between self-learning and managed-learning (if there is such a phrase).

More on Personal Learning Environments

Tony Karrer

Ray Sims has a great post on Personal Learning Environment and personal learning environments. His diagram and description that states that we not only each have our own personal learning environment, but that we are interconnected in all sorts of ways and need to be able to group things together for certain kinds of groups (organizational, informal, etc.) What I am reaching for is an optimized environment for Learning AND a loosely-couple optimized environment for Doing. In fact, the ideal in most cases is that learning is set up as doing.
