The evolution of personal learning environments

Origin Learning

A personal learning environment refers to the tools, technologies, resources etc. By and large, this constitutes John’s Personal Learning Environment (PLE). Much of our learning is informal and happens online.

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. Firstly, we need to understand the true nature of the PLE - its anatomy.

Open Learning Network vs Informal Learning Environment

Personal Learning Environments and personal learning environments

Tony Karrer

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. I believe that we all have a personal learning environment.

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.) I agree with his overall goal, but I'm not sure I separate Learning and Doing.

A PLE that is 'inside the enterprise' is a contradiction in terms.

Personal Work and Learning Environments (PWLE) - More Discussion

Tony Karrer

I've run across a few different posts talking about Personal Work and Learning Environments which I have tentatively started to call PWLE - pronounced p-whale. The reason why I think it's worth us talking about tools and maps and basically what is your PWLE (p-whale) is that it's helpful for us to figure out how to support our own personal work and learning. And points us back to Stephen Downes and the skills that we need to learn to be successful in this new world.

Online courses must die!

E-Learning Provocateur

If we dispense with online courses in favour of PDFs, how can we incorporate interactivity into the learning experience? Enter the Informal Learning Environment (ILE). Unlike a PLE, an ILE is communal. An ILE is a scalable and flexible learning environment.

This time it's personal

Learning with 'e's

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. The PLE is an approach rather than a technology.

But reading The Bamboo Project blog reminded of how our digital lives are spread all over, and the idea of a PLE is quite compelling. Michele's post My Personal Learning Environment is GREAT! If you are new to the whole idea of PLEs then you should check out a PLE in action. I know Stephen mentioned that a PLE doesn't actually exist yet, and I would only agree in that a single PLE tool does not exist yet.

The ILE and the FLE in harmony

E-Learning Provocateur

I advocated the development of Informal Learning Environments (ILEs). Since then, Steve Wheeler’s thought-provoking article Anatomy of a PLE has prompted me to extend my argument a little further. A Formal Learning Environment (FLE) which manages that learning. The ILE will contain self-paced, self-directed, unmeasured learning resources such as readings, video clips, podcasts and discussion forums.

PLEs (Personal Learning Environments) Learning in the World of Technologies

Vignettes Learning

Ray Sims has compiled a good list of resources on Personal Learning Environments ( PLE ). A quick view of PLEs as a learning method is presented by Graham Attwell (view his slideshow ). There are many dimensions to PLE and this thought has yet a long way to evolve. It provides us another way to look at how we can learn best with the abundance of Web 2.0 My concern for now, is the focus of PLEs on learning with and through the technologies.
