PLE Overview Spring 2012

  1. 1. Personal Learning Environments, 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. The goal is for students to have more control over how they learn, and for teachers to set expectations that their students will be more engaged in understanding and applying their learning strategies.Working Elements of Student PLEs, Lester and Hamilton Spring 2012 Page 1
