Transcript of My Personal Learning Environment

My Personal Learning Environment How I use the resources available to me, to complete my degree. Here i can search for books i may want to take out from the libray, even without leaving my room.
All i have to do is type in various keywords of the book or even the dvd i want borrow, for example the author, date published, name of the book and ISBN number, and i can find want im looking for very easily and then pick it up when it becoems available. Formal Sources Here i can look up keywords from lectures, ands i can carry out the further reading reconmended by lecturers Practicals Here I learn the practical skills i need to carry out my own experiments Demonstrations By watching one of the demonstraters
i can learn how to do the harder
aspects and proper technique of
experiments. Lecture Slides If I ever miss a lecture I can
catch up using downloadable
lecture slides and also use them
for revision. Lectures This is the main source of
learning at university, I
attend lectures so i that I
can get the necessary knowledge
I need to complete my degree. Reconmended
Textbooks Tutorials Library These are on a much smaller scale than lectures and they allow for more interactions with the lecturer/tutor and so allow for more questions to be asked and answered. Tutor Feedback Often pieces of work, such as lab reports are handed in to yourpersonal tutor, the tutor then marks it and tells you how you can improve your work for next time. Informal Sources Wikipedia There is almost always an artical about the subject your interested in on wikipedia, so its very useful for definitions of keywords etc. Google When in doubt google it. One of the most well know and
effect search engines on the
web, i often use google to
research a subject. Television There are often many
documentaries on TV
and they can give a lot
of information on subjects
associated with my course. Group Work Often discussing work with others can
help me learn. Google Scholar This is a very useful search
engine that has been modified
to just serach through sources
of academia, its very useful
when looking for studies for
example. Youtube I find i learn really well from watching videos, and youtube is an excellent source for videos that are associated with my course. Podcasts This is another of my favourite informal sources of information, as they can be listened to at any time and where, and you can nalso take the information in while carrying out other tasks. PubMed this is a very useful site for finding academic studies
and journals for my course. Brain A very useful resource for knowledge
gained in previous years at school. Learning Techniques Past Papers This is a very useful technique
for learning both question styes
and problem solving skills Mark Schemes This is very useful for learning both exam
technique and question question structure and
content, which is very important for performing
well on exams.
Flash Cards This is a very useful
technique for revising
keywords and definitions. Social Networking Sites Sites like facebook are very useful for discussing subjects with coursemates and I find this helps me learn. Lecture Notes Writing notes often helps
me learn what is being taught
in lectures.
