I’ve just come across these two slideshare hosted presentations by Graham Attwell of Pontydysgu that parallel some of my own thinking regarding institutional approaches to learning and Personal Learning Environments (PLE). I thought it would be useful to embed them here. (There is a little overlap with some of the slides.) I really like what Graham is doing and what he has to say, so I often find useful information in his blog.
I find this video today. It’s only 2min 30sec long and was filmed at a conference. It’s a very quick interview with Tom Whitby (@tomwhitby) where he talks about the use of Twitter by the teaching community and how this is an element of a personal learning network (PLN). He then goes on to explain the importance of social media for students who are learning for an ever changing world.
