The PLE 2014 conference will incorporate a number of interactive sessions. Among these there will be a session focusing on “The future of PLEs in the light of emerging practices”:
We invite all participants of the PLE Conference 2014 to an interactive session on Personal Learning Environments: The future of PLEs in the light of emerging practices.
In the past PLEs have often been seen from two different perspectives: the technological-oriented view and a pedagogical-oriented view. These frames influence the selection of research questions, methods and analytical perspectives – as well as how course concepts are developed. The different underlying conceptualisations of PLEs are visible in the way we as practitioners, teachers, students and researchers act in the world and how we use PLEs in work and learning.
In this interactive session we want to take a step further and discuss with you new perspectives on PLEs, e.g.: We want to have a closer look on how PLE research/development could evolve? What kind of social and cultural implication should be considered? How could a practice-oriented view be fruitful for further research and course development, and so forth?
This session will be held in the form of a World Café, so that we can discuss questions that really matter to the PLE Community. The participants will have the time to discuss, draw, doodle and connect ideas to make collective insights visible. In the end we will collect, share and exhibit evolving ideas and visualisations. The session will be moderated by Sabine Reisas (University of Kiel), Linda Castañeda (University of Murcia) and Annette Pedersen (University of Copenhagen).
Let`s explore the future of PLEs together!
