Students'�� Readiness for Personal Learning Environments
Valtonen, Teemu and Kukkonen, Jari (2011) Students'�� Readiness for Personal Learning Environments. pp. 1-7. In: Proceedings of the The PLE Conference 2011, 10th - 12th July 2011, Southampton, UK.
This paper discusses personal learning environments (PLE) from students’ perspective. The focus is on students’ readiness to build their own PLEs. Earlier studies of PLEs stress students’ central role from pedagogical and technological perspective. Pedagogical perspective refers to students’ abilities for self-regulated learning and technological perspective refers to students’ role and capabilities to design and administrate their own learning environments (Attwell, 2007; Hietanen & Valtonen, 2010). In order to be able to build PLEs, students are not only expected to be aware of their ways and practices of learning but also to be able to choose the most suitable software for their learning needs and goals. This paper describes students’ readiness for building and using PLEs by outlining students’ own evaluations of their self-regulative learning / meta-cognitive thinking and their use of social software.
