PLE bargaining

Learning with e's

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. Assessment and accreditation of learning were discussed, as was the curriculum.

Here's the abstract: The Personal Learning Environment (PLE) is a concept that describes how learners create and sustain their study through individualised tools and resources. Each PLE by its nature is unique, with each individual choosing their own preferred approaches. all of which can be encompassed within a PLE, with computers used as a medium to connect ideas and produce quality presentations for assessment.

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. Take the ass out of assessment. I glaringly omitted assessment. However, how we assess that knowledge is bizarrely old fashioned. Assessment should represent the sum of that learning. In my view it should manage assessment, not content.

Metryx : Metryx is a mobile, formative assessment solution for schools that allows teachers to offer personalized learning to their students. We are excited at the prospect of this standard leading to Personal Learning Environments (PLE) that lie outside the boundaries of any organizational learning systems, where the learners themselves are in complete control of their learning data! “One small step for e-learning technology, One giant leap for the e-learning industry.”

Personalised learning

Learning with e's

It may also be premised on faulty assessment methods. Standardised assessment militates against personalised learning too. Many schools practice assessment of learning using a criterion referenced assessment. While this is an improvement over norm referenced assessment, it still fails students. Thankfully some schools are now adopting this approach through for example, APP - Assessing Pupil Progress , or PLP - Personal Learning Plans.

Everyone has one

Learning with 'e's

Why should we question whether students have the competency to build their own PLEs, when in fact most learners already have their own PLE structure of tools sorted out when they arrive at university. As they gain more knowledge of their subject, broaden their personal learning networks and gain access to more content, so they modify their PLE to accommodate all the necessary storage, tagging and co-creation of content that ensues.

#LearningIs personal

An body of literature, books and videos has emerged in recent years explaining the benefits of the personalised curriculum, espousing individualised assessment and championing student centred learning. Even assessment can be personalised. In schools, assessment of pupil progress is a form of ipsative assessment , where students are measured against their own previous performances. We all learn differently. Each of us has preferences.

Open Learning Network vs Informal Learning Environment

E-Learning Provocateur

I was immediately interested because, like me, Mott is striving to bridge the gap between the organisation’s LMS and the learner’s PLE. The organisation manages the ILE on behalf of the learners, who are free to search, explore, ask and share at their own pace and at their own discretion, and – ideally – integrate the system into their broader PLE. While the ILE is designed to bridge the gap between the LMS and the PLE, it purposefully keeps them apart.

Can anybody hear me?

I would even go as far as to claim that Edupunk teachers should be challenging the curricula they are required to teach, and especially the assessment methods that are imposed from on high. 3) An exemplification of Edupunk philosophy is the rise of the personal learning environment (PLE) in which the learner selects his/her own tools and technologies to apply in formal and informal learning.

The ILE and the FLE in harmony

Since then, Steve Wheeler’s thought-provoking article Anatomy of a PLE has prompted me to extend my argument a little further. In contrast, the FLE will contain administrative tools such as enrolment lists, formal assessments, grades and transcripts. In my previous article Online courses must die! I advocated the development of Informal Learning Environments (ILEs).

The PLE is all about the learners as it should be and achieving PLE includes the following: Widgets – select as few or as many for each learner (BTW, expect more systems to offer widgets or something similar in 2016). But for PLE, it is goes to the next tier.

Tool Set 2009

I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? For example, Personal Learning , PLE , PWLE , PKM are all pretty closely related. But when I go to PLE and then look at the related Tools, I'm not seeing clear winners. Assess your adoption as you go. PLE - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights - personal rights to content in PLEs vs. Corporate rights to content.

Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion

Tony Karrer

There's a great deal of discussion about whether or not a PLE should be a single tool or a collection of tools loosely joined. I'm not quite happy yet with PWLE (p-Whale) as a unifying term - but I prefer it to either PLE or PKM because both of those seem to be taken; somewhat limited in their scope and also seem to imply separation from day-to-day work

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


A new breed of Personalized Learning Environments (PLE) is coming to market that designed from the ground up for personalized learning. These platforms use assessments and analytics to help measure gaps, and provide teachers the tools to manage individual learning plans and offer students methods of self-directed discovery. Over the next weeks, I will be writing about personalized learning and how that applies to different learning populations.

Theory-informed design tips

• Avoid exposing the correct answer upon an incorrect response: instead, allow the learner to re-try (unless of course the assessment is summative). • Include a formative assessment to enable the learner to test their knowledge, and to modify it or fill in gaps if necessary. • Avoid using an end-point in the bulk of the course to mark completion: instead, use a summative assessment. • Ask a colleague to bluff their way through your assessment.
