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. What does a PLE look like?

PLE - PWLE Discussion Contiunes - Corporate vs Personal and IP Rights

Tony Karrer

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.

The evolution of personal learning environments

Origin Learning

By and large, this constitutes John’s Personal Learning Environment (PLE). We look for solutions on YouTube, Wikipedia, blogs and such online resources when we encounter a problem. A personal learning environment refers to the tools, technologies, resources etc.

PKM is a set of problem-solving skills for work, focused on getting things done but not necessarily task focused. More important advances in the future will be our advances in dealing with information & problem solving, not in computer technology ( he was quoting someone–didn’t catch who, and this is only a paraphrase ). Difference between PKM/PLE/PLN: PKM is more work-focused. Posted in Learning Communities, Lifelong Learning, PLE, Workplace Learning.

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.

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?

Content creation

Content creation is an important feature in many personal learning environment (PLE) models, and together with organising and sharing, makes up the cardinal triumvirate of skills that provides learners with a clear advantage.

I was also asked why I didn't use the term PLE (Personal Learning Environment). Sound like a PLE? I know there is a problem here, and this has been pointed out by some of those who have responded to my Two fingered salute post.

Lost in translation

Learning with e's

At the VLE is Dead symposium , there was an issue over the term PLE (Personal Learning Environment). Some people objected to it being named as such, because they argue, the PLE is not a 'thing', but a concept or more accurately a counterpoint in the discourse of the VLE.

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. The problem is that the question is somewhat complex to answer for any individual and so not something to be done lightly.

Currently, I am enjoying my 40 Gig iPod for music and have downloaded hundreds of my favorite songs. The cool thing about iPod is the way I can organize, listen, and purchase music anytime I want.

More on Personal Learning Environments

Tony Karrer

When I was a professor, I normally tried to start my lectures by setting up the problem. And since I was teaching techies who are natural problem solvers, it engaged them in something they love. I see the opportunity for Learning Communities to facilitate some common toolsets where the community members have an easy-to-get-started-with PLE that easily integrates with others in the same learning community, while also are connected to others outside the community.

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. The problem was that to use the LMS to distribute all these different versions of the same thing would be a mess.

Micro-Learning: Its Role in Formal, Informal and Incidental Learning

ID Reflections

Typically, micro-learning or learning bytes or learning capsules work well as a component of informal learning where the learner pulls what they need to solve an immediate problem. Thus, learners can solve problems quickly. The problems encountered as well as the knowledge required are all presented in their natural and authentic forms. This helps learners notice the features of problem situations that make particular actions relevant. What is micro-learning?
