  1. Graham Attwell Web 2.0, social software and personal learning environments
  2. We are at present undergoing a deep and prolonged industrial revolution based on digital technologies
  3. The reform and reshaping of social systems and institutions has tended to lag behind in periods of rapid technological change
  4. Profound innovations in technology tend to be reflected in older paradigms
  5. for example the ‘virtual classroom’ or the ‘Virtual Learning Environment’
  6. The challenge
  7. It is not the development of technology per se which poses such a challenge to education systems and educational institutions
  8. but the changing ways in which people are using technologies to communicate and to learn and the accompanying social effect of such use
  9.  
  10. The reaction of education systems and institutions to the rise of social networking has been at best bewilderment, at worst downright hostility
  11. a refusal to engage in these issues risks school becoming increasingly irrelevant to the everyday lives of many young people
  12. and particularly irrelevant to the ways in which they communicate and share knowledge
  13. Web 2.0 allows young people to be active co-creators of knowledge Web 2.0 allows young people to be active co-creators of knowledge
  14. It is not just young people who use social software for learning

  22. changes in the way in which we learn and develop new competences is a challenge to our traditional subject organisation
  23. And although most countries have adopted a rhetoric of lifelong learning, there is little sign that education systems have sufficiently changed to facilitate such a movement.
  24. We have to review the industrial schooling model including the organisation of institutions and pedagogy and curriculum
  25. and, above all, systems of assessment which fail to support learning
  26. How can we support lifelong competence development?
  27. Personal Learning Environments have the potential to meet such a challenge
  28. PLE are based on the idea that learning will take place in different contexts and situations and will not be provided by a single learning provider
  29. the idea of a Personal Learning Environment recognises that learning is continuing and seeks to provide tools to support that learning
  30. Using whatever tools and devices which the learners choose
  31. It also recognises the role of the individual in organising their own learning
  32. PLEs can help in the recognition of informal learning
  33. The promise of Personal Learning Environments could be to extend access to educational technology to everyone who wishes to organise their own learning.
  34. the PLE will challenge the existing education systems and institution
