Concepts in Photos: Personal Learning Environments

with one comment

For all the chatter it has generated in the edutechie community, I find it hard to describe what exactly is a Personal Learning Environment. I’ve been asked many times before, “What are you working on for your thesis?” to which I just don’t how how to answer. One thing is for sure though, whatever descriptive, more easily recognizable bunch of words I manage to cough up with as answer, I will always, at the end of the day so to speak find myself expounding on it.

But here’s a definition we’ve been trying to work on for our thesis. Maybe someday with this I can figure out my dilemma too:

PLES are

personal learning spaces…


…where learners take control/manage own learning…

set goals

…letting them set learning goals…


…manage content…


….communicate with others in the process of learning.
