The building of Personal Learning Environment (PLE) that supports learner to set learning goals and to manage learning is related to creative and innovative activities. But more challenging is the forming of Professional Learning Network (PfLN) that can be used for facilitation of knowledge absorption, assimilation and dissemination not only in formal and informal learning process, but also in one long-term learning plan when students transform in life-long learners.

  • 12. <ul><li>PLEs building laid the foundations of some main ideas: </li></ul><ul><li>learning is an ongoing process and tools to support this learning are needed </li></ul><ul><li>the role of the individual in self-organizing learning is important </li></ul><ul><li>learning can take place in different contexts and situations and cannot be provided by a single learning provider. </li></ul><ul><li>Attwell Graham </li></ul>Building PLE on start pages Personal Learning Environment
  • 13. PLE s are systems that help learners take control of and manage their own learning. This includes providing support for learners to set their own learning goals, manage their learning; managing both content and process; communicate with others in the process of learning and thereby achieve learning goals. Wikipedia Building PLE on start pages Personal Learning Environment
  • 14. Web 2.0 applications called “ start pages ” are designed to provide a personalized place on the internet where users can mashup data, information and knowledge available anywhere, anytime, including mobile login. Wikipedia Building PLE on start pages Start pages

  • 23. Some advanced students during the PLE building self-orient and arrange content, knowledge and contacts in two different networks: personal and professional The transition from PLE to PfLN passes through a middle step of PLN set up This process is dynamic and continuously adapted to the present students’ interests In some cases the boarders between PLN and PfLN are blurred, because of coincidence of personal and professional interests PLE can be presented as a core for networks expanding The PLE building supports students in socialization and network processes set up Professional Network Organizing
  • 24. <ul><li>A model for PLE building is proposed </li></ul>Conclusion <ul><li>The modified Rogers’ model for competence development lifecycle in a learning network is used in order to be examined the main phases in competence progress of each student </li></ul><ul><li>Social networks contribute to the processes by which learners meet and communicate, and pool, share, learn about and reuse their resources, knowledge and competencies </li></ul><ul><li>PLE building is found to be a core for PLN and PfLN deployment </li></ul><ul><li>The transition from PLE to PfLN is an important step that supports students to become self-organized and life-long learners </li></ul>
