Graham Attwell’s PLE Slideshare Presentations

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.



Tom Whitby talks Twitter, PLN, and social media in teaching

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.

PLN Presentation

Yesterday I found this presentation on Slideshare by Mark Woolley about Personal Learning Networks (PLN).

I like the visual approach Mark has used in the presentation and the subject is interesting, hence I’ve embedded it:

Note: some of the YouTube videos embedded in the presentation might not be visible depending on the country you’re access from, apparently due to copyright restrictions, including the UK.
