    • 19. How can we support Learning 2.0?
    • 20. 1. Encourage learners to build a Personal Learning Environment “ collection of tools, brought together under the conceptual notion of openness, interoperability, and learner control.” George Siemens, 2007 “ using whatever tools and devices which the learners choose” “ PLEs are based on the context that learning will take place in different contexts and situations and will not be provided by a single learning provider.” Graham Attwell, 2007
    • 21. Social networks Communication File sharing sites Social bookmarking Blogs and RSS Collaboration
    • 22. Social networks Communication File sharing sites Social bookmarking Blogs and RSS Collaboration Personal/Professional Working/Learning Environment or Network PLE or PLN

    • 27. 3. Social Learning Environment “ In SocialLearn, we aim to move beyond web-feed based interoperability and visual clustering of apps on the webtop, with SL-aware apps communicating via the API, so that the learner’s profile can track and intelligently manage the flow of information and events to support their activity.”
    • 28. “ A social learning network integrates key social media tools like wikis, blogs, RSS, etc as well as social networking and social bookmarking functionality BUT ALSO provides a personal working learning space for individuals.” Jane Hart, Guide to Social Learning, 2009 4.
