PLES ARE NOT ANOTHERSUBSTANTIATION OFEDUCATIONALTECHNOLOGY BUT A NEWAPPROACH TO LEARNING
PLE ARE BASED ON THE IDEATHAT LEARNING WILL TAKEPLACE IN DIFFERENTCONTEXTS AND SITUATIONSAND WILL NOT BE PROVIDEDBY A SINGLE LEARNINGPROVIDER
THE ‘PEDAGOGY’ BEHIND THE PLE – IF IT COULDBE STILL CALLED THAT – IS THAT IT OFFERS APORTAL TO THE WORLD, THROUGH WHICHLEARNERS CAN EXPLORE ANDCREATE, ACCORDING TO THEIR OWNINTERESTS AND DIRECTIONS, INTERACTING ATALL TIMES WITH THEIR FRIENDS ANDCOMMUNITY

Social network sites can be defined as web-basedservices that allow individuals to:(1)construct a public or semi-public profile within abounded system(2)articulate a list of other users with whom theyshare a connection(3)view and traverse their list of connections andthose made by others within the system.Danah Boyd, School of Information, University of California-BerkeleyNicole Ellison, Department of Telecommunication, InformationStudies, and Media, Michigan State UniversitySocial-oriented applications andprofessional networks - newopportunities for learners andeducatorsSocial Networks
PLEs building laid the foundations ofsome main ideas:(1)learning is an ongoing processand tools to support this learningare needed(2)the role of the individual in self-organizing learning is important(3)learning can take place indifferent contexts and situationsand cannot be provided by asingle learning provider.Attwell GrahamBuilding PLE on start pagesPersonal Learning Environment
PLEs are systems that help learners takecontrol of and manage their own learning.This includes providing support for learnersto set their own learning goals, managetheir learning;managing both content and process;communicate with others in the process oflearning and thereby achieve learninggoals.WikipediaBuilding PLE on start pagesPersonal Learning Environment
Web 2.0 applications called “startpages” are designed to provide apersonalized place on the internetwhere users can mashupdata, information and knowledgeavailableanywhere, anytime, includingmobile login.WikipediaBuilding PLE on start pagesStart pages
CONCLUSION• The modified Rogers’ model for competence development lifecyclein a learning network is used in order to be examined the mainphases in competence progress of each student• Social networks contribute to the processes by which learners meetand communicate, and pool, share, learn about and reuse theirresources, knowledge and competencies• PLE building is found to be a core for PLN and PfLN deployment• The transition from PLE to PfLN is an important step that supportsstudents to become self-organized and life-long learners
