PLEs and PLNs for Lifelong Learning 


January 9th- February 12, 2012  







Welcome to our Wiki!




In recent years, there has been a new array of learning management systems (LMS). Tools such as blogs, wikis, screencasting, and social bookmarking have created a significant shift in the educational experience. Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) enable learners to have greater control over their own learning experience. This session will take a look at the current situation by clarifying the concepts of personal learning environments and networks (PLNs). Participants will create their own PLE or PLN and select which Web 2.0 tools they want to support it, as the 5-week session evolves.  We will use this wiki and a Yahoo Group (YG) for sharing information and facilitating interactions. 



Target Audience:


Teachers, educators, and individuals seeking an innovative approach to new learning dimensions.







Communication tools to be used:



  • This wiki is for our syllabus, weekly tasks, and for posting our final projects (see the sidebar).  Feel free to post comments below each page, as needed.  However, for in depth discussions, please post your ideas to the YG.
