The PLE represents a shift in paradigm. It is impelling a new ‘learning movement’ away from the traditional models of teaching and learning towards an open learning model in which learners adopt their own strategies for learning. The PLE philosophy suggests great potential in allowing educators to implement new ideas regarding how educational contexts should be organized. It also provides new ways of implementing and pursuing a new kind of learning outcomes. In this new perspective, learning is not just a matter of memorizing concepts and facts; it focuses more on the skills and competences learners can acquire through the opportunities they are given. The PLE celebrates autonomy and urges the independent learner to develop learning strategies which match their learning needs. The PLE provides the foundations needed to pursue lifelong learning in the 21st century.
