Transcript of ""Chunked" Version: What You Can Do with Your PLE"
What Can I Add to My Personal Learning Environment? Spring 2012 Lester and Hamilton PLEs refer to student-designed learning approaches that encompass different types of content — videos, apps, games, social media tools, and more — chosen by a student to match his or her personal learning style and pace. Despite the use of the word “environment” in the name, the notion of a collection or a physical or online space is somewhat irrelevant to a PLE.
