Strategically Designed Personal Learning Environments (PLEs): A Process for Engaging Students in Self-Regulated Learning Using Social Media
Personal Learning Environments or PLEs enable the development of personal and social learning spaces to support learner-centered and personalized learning experiences empowering students to direct their own learning and develop self-regulated learning skills. They do so because they are built bottom-up, by the student, starting with personal goals, information management, and individual knowledge construction, and progressing to socially mediated knowledge and networked learning. A PLE can be described as a process that helps students organize the influx of information and resources they are faced with on a daily basis into a personalized digital learning space or experience. However, students must possess the knowledge management and self-regulatory skills to effectively create and customize a PLE for their learning needs. This presentation will address this critical issue focusing on the use of a three-level pedagogical framework that assists faculty in scaffolding student PLE development using social media technologies in order to support self-regulated learning.
