Personal Learning Environments
Personal Learning Environments are an interesting idea we’ve seen codify recently. A PLA is a system that helps learners take control of and manage their own learning. Kind of like your own web based library or school. A repository to store, share and index your acquired knowledge, notes and wisdom. It can be a form of personal branding and a portfolio of learning. Also similar to a resume, but it’s more for your reference. PLA’s use a mix of online and offline tools, usually organized in some way online.
