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. I think a good definition is this: a self-directed and evolving environment of tools, services and resources organized by a person seeking a way to accomplish lifetime learning, to create, and to connect with others of similar interests. Because it is personalized, everyone’s PLE will be unique. Organic Design Versus Planned Design Perhaps your personal learning environment, like mine, emerged organically. But what if you wanted to consciously design and build the most effective personal learning environment that would meet all of your needs? Advantages of Using a Model There are some advantages to relying on a model for building a personal learning environment. First, having a model narrows down your options, which can be good when starting out. How To Use a Model A Generic Model The Four C’s Model Must Have More References:
Some Observations on PLE Diagrams – EdtechPost One of the perennial favourite pages on my edtechpost wikispace has been the collection of Personal Learning Environment (PLE) diagrams I started back in 2008. A couple of years back I wrote a call to folks asking for feedback on what I might do to improve it. I didn’t get a lot of feedback, but one comment, from Ismael Peña-López really stuck with me – that what I should be doing was some analysis of my own on the collection, which indeed had in fact been the actual goal all along in creating the collection of diagrams. I know it’s taken a while, but with some time on my hands, here are some reflections on what this collection of PLE Diagrams might tell us. Caveat Emptor – Skewed Sample There are currently 79 diagrams in the collection. But I think this is important to note up front – while some of these diagrams are simply a list of a few tools the person uses, many of them exhibit a HIGH degree of self-reflection, meta-cognition and technological adeptness.

PLE and PLEI | Imaile Personal Learning Environments (PLE) are systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to: set their own learning goals ( with support of their teachers)manage their learning, both content and processcommunicate with others in the process of learning Personal learning environments (PLE) / Learning management systems (LMS) and Interactive classrooms European schools at present show a teacher centric classroom with teachers using technology, interactive whiteboards and LMS systems. Research indicates that interactive classrooms need the support of ICT personal learning environments in order to provide participatory learning in a student centric way. Why PLE? PLEI – PLE in IMAILE Project Definition of IMAILE PLE How our PLE solution can support our teachers / students / schools in large? I. Using a dialogue between demand and supply side we can tackle the challenges mentioned above. PLE progress from Markku Lang on Vimeo.
4 Models for Designing a PLE Pontydysgu – Bridge to Learning - Educational Research Firstly, apologies to those of you who have emailed me about different entries in this blog and have not yet had a reply. I am struggling with a mountain of work and will try to get back to everyone by the end of next week. Over the weekend a worked on editing the paper I produced on Personal Learning Environments for the TenCompetence conference in Manchester in January. The reviewer said “. Hm – the original was 8000 words so certainly was over the limit. But then she or he went on to say:”In making this revision please give greater prominence to the SME study, and discuss it in greater depth. A little tricky. I’m copying the whole paper into this blog. Introduction The article reflects the growing interest in the educational technology community in Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) as the next wave of innovation in Technology Enhanced Learning. In previous papers I have sought to explain PLEs as a concept rather than as a technology based application.
How To Create a Personal Learning Environment to Stay Relevant in 2013 “Our understanding of learning has expanded at a rate that has far outpaced our conceptions of teaching. A growing appreciation for the porous boundaries between the classroom and life experience…has created not only promising changes but also disruptive moments in teaching.” EDUCAUSE Review, 2012 This quote from Disrupting Ourselves: The Problem of Learning in Higher Education (Bass, 2012), gives a good a reason as any for educators to develop a Personal learning Environment [PLE]; a space where we can keep up with the experimental modes of learning, instruction, changing pedagogy and instructional methods that surfaced in 2012. In a previous post I introduced the concept of PLEs and touched on why educators may want to consider developing a PLE for 2013. In this post I’ll outline how educators can develop their own PLE, where to start, and I’ll provide specific action steps, and what tools to use. We need to disrupt ourselves: The model of higher education is at a turning point.
Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) Personal learning environment This article or chapter is incomplete and its contents need further attention. Some information may be missing or may be wrong, spelling and grammar may have to be improved, use your judgment! 1 Definitions Graham Attwell defines Personal Learning Environments (PLE) as an idea that firstly integrates "pressures and movements" like lifelong learning, informal learning, learning styles, new approaches to assessment, cognitive tools. “ The most compelling argument for the PLE is to develop educational technology which can respond to the way people are using technology for learning and which allows them to themselves shape their own learning spaces, to form and join communities and to create, consume, remix, and share material”.(, retrieved 22:17, 25 April 2007 (MEST)] On also may define a PLE as a system (but some may not necessarily agree). “ A PLE is characterized by the freeform use of a set of lightweight services and tools that belong to and are controlled by individual learners. .

Self-directed learning Contents: introduction · Knowles and self-direction · understanding self-directed learning · a critique of self-directed learning · the characteristics of self-direction · conclusion · further reading and references · Stephen D. Brookfield · acknowledgements · how to cite this piece In the three decades since the Canadian adult educator, Allen Tough, published a study claiming that the bulk of adult learning occurred without the help of formally certified educators (Brookfield, 1981), the idea of self-directed learning (as it has come to be known) has captured the hearts and minds of many adult educators on both sides of the Atlantic. There is now sufficient research and theoretical analysis in existence to justify the publication of substantial literature reviews devoted solely to this topic (Caffarrella and O’ Donnell, 1990). Knowles and self-direction Despite efforts to reframe self-direction in a critical way, the prevailing definition is that offered by Malcolm Knowles. Conclusion
Story of an Idea In 2006, I completed my PhD dissertation titled “Examining the Open Movement: Possibilities & Implications for Education“. The study focused on the development of the open movement amongst educators. More specifically, it described the practice of teachers who were influenced by the ideals of the Open Source Software movement and the progression towards other forms of openness (e.g., open content, open access). On page 175 of the document, I included a simple diagram titled “The Networked Teacher”.

Education-2025 - Personal Learning Environments Why Personalized Learning Environments?As education moves well into the 21st century, the ways in which we learn and the things we use to learn with, including technology, are constantly changing and evolving. One of the most far-reaching changes is the easy and increasingly inexpensive access to information technology. Brown and Long claim that due to the “increasing proliferation of information technology, the need for basic access is not as acute as a decade ago, allowing the focus to shift from the provision of basic access to that of integrated services to aid learning…[and that] learning spaces in the 21st century need to foster discovery, innovation, and scholarship, not simply contain them.” Since students had never before made a PLE significant, “amount of time was allotted at the beginning of the project to address digital literacy as well as task and organizational skills that would be required in the online environment” (Drexler, 2011, p.376).
