Anatomy of a PLE

Learning with e's

Originally a counterpoint to the institutional Managed Learning Environment (iMLE or 'VLE'), PLEs are becoming a much talked about concept, and were the prime focus of the recently held PLE Conference in Cornella, Barcelona. At the Barcelona PLE Conference we unveiled our ideas in a position paper, which we also share here on this blog. What does a PLE look like? Web 2.0

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.

Physiology of a PLE

Learning with e's

Yesterday I posted my views on what I think are the essential components of a Personal Learning Environment - the Anatomy of the PLE. Such key functions of the PLE (Personal Web Tools component) can be managed through a number of tools, and learners each have their individual preferences, all of which ensures that each PLE will be unique to that individual learner.

Call it a PLE if you like, to me it is connectivist learning. think however the terms PLE and PLN are with us to stay and so an appreciation of the differences between the terms is useful. From the various blog posts it would seem that the consensus is that a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) is more concerned with tools and technology and that Personal Learning Networks (PLN) are more concerned with connections to people. agree with these distinctions and I like Vahid Masrour's ( PLE, i think i got it (for me, anyways) concise view of their respective functions.

E-Learning Provocateur

Occupying a place on the continuum somewhere between a VLE and a PLE, an ILE is an informal learning environment that a facilitator manages on behalf of a group of learners. Unlike a PLE, an ILE is communal. A touch dramatic, isn’t it? Now that I have your attention, please bear with me. There’s method in my madness… The myth of rapid authoring. But you know what?

Limitless learning

Learning with e's

The personal learning environment (PLE) is still a bone of contention. What is interesting about Ismael's model is the way he incorporates the ZPD into a general model of the PLE, and argues that in fact, both MKOs and ZPD can constitute a PLE. 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.

I first read about PLE in Viplav Baxi’s blog. Michele’s blog has many posts about PLE and her blog and the Bamboo project make an interesting case study for using Web 2.0 And of course my much revered blogger Tony Karrer has many posts on PLE. 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. Then I came across it again in a blog that I am currently following with great interest – Michele Martin’s The Bamboo Project.
