Friedrich , Martin and Renzel , Dominik and Isaksson , Erik and Bogdanov , Evgeny and Santos , Jose Luis (2011) Developing pedagogically sound PLEs â�� a practical introduction. pp. 1-2. In: Proceedings of the The PLE Conference 2011, 10th - 12th July 2011, Southampton, UK.
This workshop and tutorial outlines how software developers can implement services and widgets for the use in personal learning environments (PLE). Participants will be guided through a scenario explaining the different approaches and technologies developed as part of the ROLE project, enabling them to uptake and use pedagogically relevant information on the one hand, and teaching them how to build responsive and collaborative widgets on the other hand. As a result the audience will be able to design, implement and deploy a learning widget in the ROLE Widget Store from where it can be downloaded and deployed in many available social containers like iGoogle, Graaasp or existing learning management systems (LMS). The workshop is scheduled for 2h and is planned as an information provision session. As such it provides a general overview about the respective topics, gives concrete examples of how the technology is used in the ROLE project and also discusses upcoming problems. Interested parties are invited to participate in hands-on sessions during or after the conference for getting real-world practice together with the experts. The workshop addresses designers of PLEs, widget developers, recommendation service developers and Web 2.0 service developers. The workshop is scheduled for a maximum of 20 participants.
