2. What are PLEs?

  • Personal Learning Environmentsare systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to
    • set their own learning goals
    • manage their learning; managing both content and process
    • communicate with others in the process of learning
    • and thereby achieve learning goals.

  • Important concepts in PLEs include the integration of bothformal andinformallearning episodes into a single experience, the use of social networks that can cross institutional boundaries, and the use of networking protocols (Peer-to-Peer, web services, syndication) to connect a range of resources and systems within a personally-managed space.
