  2. 2. Agenda• Introduction to the ROLE tools• First group activity: Use ROLE widgets to find and share learning resources on the web• Second group activity: Build your mash-up of ROLE tools• Plenary discussion on the outcomes of the two group activities• Third group activity: Design your widget• Reflections, conclusions and next steps
  3. 3. Widgets and apps everywhere!
  4. 4. What is a widget?• Widget (or Gadget) A widget is a micro-application performing a dedicated task. This task can be as simple as showing news headlines or weather forecasts, but also more complex like facilitating language learning or collaborative authoring.• Widget bundle A widget bundle is a set of widgets that complement each other and are used together for a common purpose.• Widget store A widget store is a directory of widgets. Users can browse and download the widgets, as well as provide feedback on the widgets through ratings and comments.
  5. 5. What is a PLE? • A Personal Learning Environment (PLE) is a facility for an individual to aggregate, manipulate and share digital artefacts of their ongoing learning experiences. • The PLE follows a learner- centric approach, allowing the use of lightweight services and tools that belong to and are controlled by individual learners. http://www.flickr.com/photos/hanspoldoja/4098840001 http://www.flickr.com/photos/petahopkins/2157928982
  6. 6. PLE characteristics• Supporting learners in planning and controlling their learning journey • Setting their own learning goals • Monitoring their progress towards achieving these goals• Managing their learning – both content and process • Enabling learners to aggregate resources and personalise their learning environment • Providing recommendations to learners about resources and other learners (‘study-buddies’)• Collaborating with others in the process of learning • Providing support to learners for community building and collaborative activities • A shared learning experience instead of a lone study
  7. 7. An introductory course to PLEs http://tinyurl.com/role-course • Introduces the core ROLE concepts and demonstrates a selection of ROLE learning tools. • Learning outcomes: • Understand how widgets can be used to carry out specific tasks • Outline how a Personal Learning Environment can be enabled • Build your own Personal Learning Environment
  8. 8. Self-Regulated Learning• Self-regulated learning (SRL) is a term that describes an individual’s ability to learn how to learn. In other words, each of us can develop a wide-ranging skill set that enables us to learn in a number of different ways.• In some university settings the term SRL is more commonly described as “independent learning” or “auto-didactic learning”.• Some examples of how SRL might be assessed: • Having the ability to set learning goals and plan appropriate study strategies • Finding suitable learning materials • Seeking help from peers and collaborating to gain feedback or assurance • Being able to reflect on their learning progress and adjust their study strategies accordingly
  9. 9. An introductory course to SRL http://tinyurl.com/role-srl-course • Learning outcomes: • Understand the fundamental aspects of SRL • Outline a series of SRL examples • Assess your own SRL skills • Understand how you can use the ROLE tools to apply SRL to your learning
  10. 10. SRL in ROLE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTa1vOH6JjA
  11. 11. Social search widget: Binocs • The Binocs widget allows search for a variety of content formats (e.g. videos, presentations) and content repositories (e.g. YouTube, SlideShare, Wikipedia). • Search results are ranked according to users’ ratings.
  12. 12. Bibliography search widget: ObjectSpot The ObjectSpot widget searches through: • Bibliographic repositories, such as Google Scholar, CiteULike, DBLP. • Repositories of OER (Open Educational Resources), such as OpenLearn, Jorum, iTunes U.
  13. 13. Collaborative authoring widget: EtherPad• The EtherPad widget enables real-time document collaboration for groups of users.• When multiple authors edit the same EtherPad document simultaneously, any changes are instantly reflected on everyones screen.
