  6. 6. PLEs – definitions <ul><li>A Personal Learning Environment is a facility for an individual to access, aggregate, configure and manipulate digital artefacts of their ongoing learning experiences. </li></ul><ul><li>Personal Learning Environments are systems that help learners take control of and manager their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to: </li></ul><ul><li>Set their own learning goals </li></ul><ul><li>Manage their learning – both content and process </li></ul><ul><li>Communicate with other in the process of learning </li></ul><ul><li>And thereby achieve their learning goals. </li></ul><ul><li>PLEs are based on the idea that most learning takes place informally, in different contexts and situations, and not by one single provider. </li></ul>1 October 2009 © www.role-project.eu WOLCE, Birmingham, UK
