    2. 2. Aims Aims • Share our understanding of digital identity • Consider how digital technologies can be used to develop a ‘PLN’ • Discuss why this may be important as 21st century life long learners
    3. 3. Identity“It is difficult to craft a formal definition of identity. Basically, the essential and unique characteristics of an entity are what identify it. These characteristics might include, among other things, the unchanging physical traits of the person, his preferences, or other peoples perceptions of the individuals personality”. (Abelson and Lessig 1998)

    18. 18. Scaffolded Learning throughPersonal Learning Networks What is scaffolding used for? Its not used to support the building, because that must ultimately stand on its own. No, scaffolding is there to support the building process - and to support the builders themselves. (Wheeler 2009) Scaffolded Learning - Bruner
    19. 19. “The scaffolding represents the learners Personal Learning Network (PLN) (to some degree, at least), enabling the learner to build new knowledge through their interactions with a range of other people and resources……social learning fundamentally occurs through our attempts to negotiate meaning with others and recognising holes in our existing knowledge as a result”. Parslow 2009
