  • Well said Vladimir Tomberg. I see it in the perspectives of teachers personalized learning skills set. As personal learning environment is based on the idea to enable learners to be autonomous, so that they can take decisions based on their learning needs, strengths, and challenges. Teachers must look this aspect of their learners, and guide them properly. Once the learners are autonomous, they will need no more guidance, scaffolding, or mentoring. They will apply their ICT/web 2.0 skills of informal learning into the construction of PLE (a blend of informal and formal learning).

  • Hello Zaffar. Your research looks interesting for me because I do investigate teacher's role in PLE too. I think Teaching Presence from Community of Inquiry can provide good theoretical background for this direction.
