Personal Learning Environment
Not tied to a specific institution, but stays with the student over time - Lifelong Learning tool - an even when/while a formal student, allows unofficial thoughts/interests/stuff to be kept in there too.
thus, a Thinking Space (hmm, have to decide what to share with a given teacher...)
and need Open Social Networking Model to connect with fellow students
Oct'2010: Dave Cormier decided My PLE model is the internet – no more system for me... this summer I looked back at the 2008 course site i was still managing and said NO! I’m NOT doing it again. Everytime i throw away a system, a webpage, a moodle course or something like that I’m breaking up a community (even though the students have likely long left) that I tried to make my students believe was important to build. I’m breaking connections that others may have to my students work… The whole thing works against my philosophy. So i don’t do it anymore... In the course I taught this summer, I had the students go out into the wild with their work. I asked them to set up a blog on wordpress.com. I asked them to get a twitter account. I told them that they would need to keep track of each and everything that they wanted me to evaluate and put it in a googledoc.
P Learn - Stephen Downes project http://ple.elg.ca/ - The idea, as described in prototypes created by Britain’s CETIS (‘Plex’) and Canada’s NRC (GRssHopper), is to create a common environment in which a learner may aggregate resources and services from a large number of distinct providers, work with these materials to solve problems or create new resources, and then communicate these results to peer learners, instructors or mentors, evaluation and assessment agencies, or the public at large. The PLE will allow people to manage their own learning, and will function as the student’s personal educational record and online Portfolio. It will link into educational, business and employment networks.
- Oct'2011: we were not allowed to release. Hmm, why?
Would Student Wiki Web count?
