    • Personal Learning Environments - aconcept based on Web 2 .0 and socialsoftware
    • We are at present undergoing a deepand prolonged industrial revolutionbased on digital technologies (Attwel,2010)
    • The reform and reshaping ofsocial systems and institutionshas tended to lag behind inperiods of rapid technologicalchange (Attwel, 2010)
    • Profound innovations in technology tendto be reflected in older paradigms(Attwel,2010)
    • but the changing ways in which peopleare using technologies to communicateand to learn and the accompanying socialeffect of such use (Attwel, 2010)
    • a refusal to engage in these issues risksschool becoming increasingly irrelevant tothe everyday lives of many young people(Attwel, 2010)
    • and particularlyirrelevant to the waysin which theycommunicate andshare knowledge(Attwel, 2010)
    • We have to review the industrial schoolingmodel including the organisation ofinstitutions and pedagogy and curriculum(Attwel,2010)
    • It is not just young people whouse social software for learning(Attwel, 2010)
    • Social software iswidely used in theworkplace for informallearning (Attwel, 2010)
    • Most informal learning is learnerdriven, problem based, or motivatedby interest (Attwel, 2010)
    • Google is the most used e-learningapplication
    • most learning is unaccredited
    • people learn through legitimateperipheral participation (Attwel, 2010)
    • PLEs are not anothersubstantiation ofeducational technology buta new approach to learning.(Attwel, 2010)
    • A response to pedagogic approaches which require thatlearner’s e-learning systems need to be under the controlof the learners themselves. (Attwel, 2010)
    • and recognize the needs of life-long learners for a system thatprovides a standard interface to different institutions’ e-learning systems, and that allows portfolio information to bemaintained across institutions. (Attwel, 2010)
    • Learning is now seenas multi episodic,with individualsspending occasionalperiods of formaleducation andtraining throughouttheir working life.(Attwel, 2010)
    • PLE are based on the idea thatlearning will take place indifferent contexts and situationsand will not be provided by asingle learning provider (Attwel,2010).
    • the idea of a Personal LearningEnvironment recognises thatlearning is continuing and seeks toprovide tools to support thatlearning (Attwel, 2010)
    • Using whatever tools anddevices which the learnerschoose (Attwel, 2010)
    • It also recognises the role of the individualin organising their own learning (Attwel,2010)
    • PLEs can help in therecognition of informallearning (Attwel, 2010)
    • PLEs can develop on thepotential of services orientedarchitectures for dispersedand networked forms oflearning and knowledgedevelopment (Attwel, 2010)
    • “the heart of the concept of the PLE isthat it is a tool that allows a learner (oranyone) to engage in a distributedenvironment consisting of a network ofpeople, services and resources. It is notjust Web 2.0, but it is certainly Web 2.0in the sense that it is (in the broadestsense possible) a read-writeapplication.”(Attwel, 2010)
    • The promise of PersonalLearning Environments couldbe to extend access toeducational technology toeveryone who wishes toorganise their own learning(Attwel, 2010).
    • The ‘pedagogy’ behind the PLE –if it could be still called that – isthat it offers a portal to theworld, through which learnerscan explore and create, accordingto their own interests anddirections, interacting at all timeswith their friends and community(Attwel, 2010)
    • the PLE will challenge theexisting education systems andinstitution (Attwel, 2010)
    • Policies to support the developmentand implementation of PLEs(Attwel, 2010)
    • recognize different forms and contextsof learning (Attwel, 2010)
    • the development and adoption of newpedagogies (Attwel, 2010)
    • the co-shaping oftechnologies bringingtogether techies andteachers, enterprises andinstitutions (Attwel, 2010)
