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. What we did agree on though, was that the PLE is 'all about me' - it's what each of us personally creates around us as a means to support our lifelong learning.

Twitter vs blogging

Learning with e's

It's not the VLE vs the PLE. This time it's whether Twitter is killing blogging. I was only on the periphery of the Twitter vs blogging debate when I chaired a F-ALT (Fringe ALT-C) session late at night over at the Contact Theatre in Manchester last week. The antagonists were Josie Fraser, who argued for the merits of Twitter, and Graham Attwell, who claimed that Twitter was quite simply not as deep and meaningful as blogging. So is Twitter killing blogging?

First off, I have to say that this entire PLE conversation hasnt really sparked much for me. Maybe it was even "personal learning" before the term PLE came along. I dont see a traditional corporation every truly embracing the theme of PLE -- at least in the pure sense of the term "personal". So, you have a PLE if : If youre interested in personal growth and development. To have a PLE, do you need to first be aware that you are learning?

There has been a bit of discussion on Twitter, and at our recent ALT-C VLE symposium, on the importance of naming things. 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. or the PLE and rename will be a little more difficult, I predict.

The Top 10 Tools are: 1. Twitter. He questions the real learning potential of Twitter and wonders if it’s a fad. I either review them immediately or mark them as favorites for future reading and that seems to be working well for my PLE.

Jane Hart released the final list of top 100 tools for learning 2009 last month.

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. I use a mashup of wiki (shell to aggregate all tools and provide a collaborative space), blogs (reflective tool and mind amplification space) and Twitter (microblog to update and inform and also to receive ideas and contact from others with a similar interest to me).

I Believe in the Importance of a Personal Learning Network

Tom Spiglanin

When I started using Twitter for my professional growth and development, I didn’t realize that I was also starting to build my personal learning network. After the conference, I discovered Twitter chats and began participating in them regularly. Before joining Twitter in 2009 (and really starting to use it in 2011), my PLN was limited to those I had worked with or perhaps saw once a month at a SIG meeting.

I'm hoping to address questions such as: How do you create a personal tool set or Personal Learning Environment (PLE) for yourself? Should twitter be part of your tool set?

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? And it started dawning on me that the PLE was about a revolution in learning -- about teaching people to learn -- about empowering individuals to take control of their own learning environments, their futures. PLE is a concept. Tom Haskins wrote, "Life is my PLE." The PLE is not a corporate responsibility, but a societal one.
