    PLE vs VLE PLE - open learning - informal learning - student/teacher owned - small pieces loosely joined
  • 25. Some Benefits
    • "As people communicate online, that conversation becomes part of a
    • lively, significant, public digital knowledge - rather than chatting for one
    • moment with a small group of friends and colleagues, every person
    • potentially has access to a global audience. Taken together, that
    • conversation also creates a mode of knowing we've never had
    • before...these diverse viewpoints help us get past the biases of
    • individuals..." (Weinberger, 2007:146)

  • 27. “ Social software offers the opportunity to narrow the divide between producers and consumers. Consumers themselves become producers, through creating and sharing. One implication is the potential for a new ecology of ‘open’ content, books, learning materials and multimedia, through learners themselves becoming producers of learning materials.” (Attwell, 2007) New approach to using technologies for learning.
