Implementing and utilizing personal learning environments (PLEs) in educational settings is a challenging and complex process that requires the intensive involvement of both teachers and students. There are several important issues that need to be considered in order to build PLEs and utilize them as effective learning tools in educational settings. Among other issues, the implementation of PLEs in a way that can support the student’s control and improve the teacher’s practices is a key factor affecting the adoption of them by students and teachers. In this paper, we propose a framework for developing PLEs in educational settings in order to support teachers and students to negotiate control and then analyze the perceptions of teachers regarding the impact of the framework on their teaching practices.

A FRAMEWORK TO SUPPORT THE NEGOTIATION OF CONTROL BETWEEN TEACHERS AND STUDENTS IN PLEs Presentation Transcript

  • 1. 1Challenge the future A FRAMEWORK TO SUPPORT THE NEGOTIATION OF CONTROL BETWEEN TEACHERS AND STUDENTS IN WEB- BASED PLEs Ebrahim Rahimi, Jan Van den Berg, Wim Veen
  • 2. 2Challenge the future The main purpose of PLE is to transfer the control of learning process to students. Student’s control is linked to: • the student’s capacity to make choices and impose those choices on their learning, •(perceived) possibilities to manipulate their learning environments (Dron, 2006; Buchem, 2012)
  • 3. 3Challenge the future transactional control mapped to transactional distance (Dron, 2007) Control as a continuum
  • 4. 4Challenge the future A practical problem in the educational settings Lack of a mechanism to choose, evaluate and discover the learning benefits of web technologies and integrate them into the educational process The permanent and extensive contact of students with technology Unceasing development of technology + Great opportunities for students to negotiate control
  • 5. 5Challenge the future A digital activity space which provides the students with technological choices to: •Work with different tools and technologies to support their heterogeneous learning needs •Discover the leaning potential of new technologies • Share their learning experiences and good practices with their peers and teachers Requirements:
  • 6. 6Challenge the future SER model-Seeding, Evolution, Reseeding (adopted from DePaula et al., 2001) Seeding phase: •Providing students with an initial set of web tools and technologies Evolution phase: • The teacher encourage and support students to evolve their PLEs . Reseeding phase: Obtaining the students’ good practices and their preferred learning tools and resources
  • 7. 7Challenge the future Developing a Prototype to implement the solution
  • 8. 8Challenge the future Social Hub (Seeding phase)
  • 9. 9Challenge the future Personal Part (Evolution phase)
  • 10. 10Challenge the future Figure 5. Supporting Reseeding phase by considering students opinion about a learning artifact Reseeding Phase
  • 11. 11Challenge the future Evaluation of the Prototype Interviewing 10 teachers in the context of a secondary school How do teachers perceive the PLE prototype as a tool to support the negotiation of control?
  • 12. 12Challenge the future Figure 6: the perceived impacts of the PLEprototype on teachers' teaching process RESULT S
  • 13. 13Challenge the future Conclusion : • Teachers need to know students’ technological preferences and the ways they work and learn with technology. Therefore a PLE platform should provides teachers with this information in order to implement a student-centric learning approach. • In order to assist students and teachers to identify relevant and valuable web tools, clear criteria to assess the learning benefits of web tools is required.
