#SP4Ed Establishing my personal learning environment

According to our reading material, 'the term personal learning environment (PLE) describes the tools, communities, and services that constitute the individualeducational platforms learners use to direct their own learning and pursue educational goals'. A PLE tends to be leaner-centric.

This blog forms part of my PLE for the course, Scenario planning for educators. It reflects the idea that learning takes place in various ways in current society, for instance, in informal, networked environments. If we as educators want to encourage students to incorporate PLEs in their learning, we probably need to experience first-hand how this approach functions.

A blog also typically supports reflection and critical thinking, which we will probably be encouraged to apply throughout the course.


  1. Hi Leona.

    Welcome to SP4Ed. A remote connection, I see from your about page that you have worked at Unisa. I was there many years ago. Hope you enjoy this mOOC!

  2. Hi Wayne

    I am indeed still working at Unisa (have been there since 1990). We find ourselves in interesting times, since we recently adopted an ODeL business model. One never knows, maybe you will pass in Unisa's direction again in future.
