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).

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.

Physiology of a PLE

Yesterday I posted my views on what I think are the essential components of a Personal Learning Environment - the Anatomy of the PLE. You will note that the functionality is exclusive to the personal web tools (PWTs) I outlined in yesterday's post.

Those attending the PLE Conference found themselves quickly immersed in discussion, dialogue and debate over the nature and ethos of the personal learning environment. Assessment and accreditation of learning were discussed, as was the curriculum.

PLE vs VLE

Primary education students, Adam Skill, Danny Houton and James Carhart, have created a most excellent video to accompany their paper for the Plymouth e-Learning Conference next month. Each PLE by its nature is unique, with each individual choosing their own preferred approaches.

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. Posted by Steve Wheeler from Learning with e's.

Models For Designing Your Personal Learning Environment

A personal learning environment (PLE) is a solution for keeping up with the rapid pace of knowledge change. Some say it is a concept, while others say it is a technology.

Why It's Time to Dump Your LMS for a PLE [Infographic]

Launchfire

In addition to less than inspiring visuals, most LMSs don’t offer individualized learning paths. Instead they push users through a rigid, one-size-fits-all course structure -- hardly an optimal experience in the age of hyper personalization.

Personal Learning Tools and Technologies

Tony Karrer

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.

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.

Personal Learning Knowledge Work Environment

Tony Karrer

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. Certainly PLE and PKM would seem to be too limited, right?

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 The concept of a Personal Learning Environment Framework gets it even farther from some actual system.

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.

This continues the discussion being had around PLE/PWLEs - see More Discussion on Personal Work Learning Environments for a bit of recap. Tom Haskins has a series of interesting posts - on the topic: Enterprises that love PLE's Traits for creating PLE's at work The P in PLE First, I have to jump on the comments in these posts by Stephen Downes and Michelle Martin. A PLE that is 'inside the enterprise' is a contradiction in terms.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Personal Learning Earthquake

Learning Visions

Cammy Beans Learning Visions Musings on eLearning, instructional design and other training stuff. Tuesday, June 05, 2007 Personal Learning Earthquake Sometimes tectonic plates shift and earthquakes form cracks in the crust. My personal view of e-Learning is from the corporate side of the aisle. So the PLE conversation has been, for me, framed in terms of the LMS and tools. How do you make an LMS into a PLE? The care of a whole person.

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. Idiosyncratic. Individual.

Personal Learning - Corporate Environment

Learning Rocks

So far at work I've managed to avoid mentioning the TLA "PLE", mostly to avoid the blank stares and potential ostracism. For me, the most important technological component in all this is RSS, really simple syndication, the bit that makes the blogs work and what feeds my Google homepage - the start of my own PLE. I'd love to know so I could help these guys get the solution that suits them best, and examples of people like them getting the learning right would really help.

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.

Donald Clark left the following comment on my posting about personal learning environments: "The term PLE is, in itself, suspect. Learning - well no, it's more about a two-way, working window - learning is at best a small part of it, a by product, not it's sole purpose.
