Well the holidays are over and it’s time to start thinking about personal learning environments again. I’ve read a paper by Graham Attwell on PLEs which for me, raised some interesting ideas.
- “Employers also increasingly wish to see evidence of the ability to apply skills and knowledge in a particular context. PLEs could facilitate such presentations, in an extended form of an e-Portfolio and through links to an e-Porfolio.”
- “the embedding of computer based communication within the tools of the workplace. This offers the opportunity to develop learning environments whilst simultaneously accessing and shaping the production and business process through such interfaces.”
I’m particularly interested in the notion of the blending of the learning environment with the work environment.
