Transcript of My "dPLE" - Digital Personal Learning Environment

What is a PLE? "A system which allows a user
to take control of and manage
their own learning"[1] ...Like a neatly tidied bedroom? In a sense, yes; a personal learning
environment often contains many subsystems
allowing a user to... Set goals for themselves... communicate with others
whilst learning manage their learning, it's
content and how it happens... and We're looking at Digital
Personal Learning Environments,
in particular the one that I use
as a student of the University
of Leeds Uni online resources These have a login procedure which allows
access to a well organised set of files that
relate to your modules taken only, as well
as offering lecture lists, an email facility, your
personal timetable and much more... Learning resources contain slides
of lectures, which can be printed
off and annotated during the lectures
for fast and efficient note-taking Podcasts can be downloaded,
which is especially useful
for people who learn best
by listening, these can be
downloaded after logging
into the VLE By combining PODCASTS
audio and visual learning
can be achieved with just
printouts and an ipod! External links are
also available through
the VLE, allowing access
to interviews, videos of
experiments, past papers
and other useful information. When used in combination
with the administrative
information available such
as the handbooks and pre-requisite
information, enough pre-reading
can be achieved so that lectures
can be understood, and if not, a lecturer
can be contacted by email anyway. Offered by the university is
a huge amount of information
and combined with the following
resources, there's no excuse for
missing topics really..! Facebook is used to keep in touch
with friends, arrange plans to go
out in Leeds etc, all part of a healthy
social life... it's not all work... Google is used as my main
search engine, it's gone from
strength to strength in recent
years due to it's concise searching
system, it's brilliant, and this brings me onto google scholar... Google scholar has articles and
extracts and a brilliant search
engine allowing articles, theses, books
and abstracts to be found by various search terms such as by author, publishing date / area or just by what it contains, this is useful as I can find references easily, and see whether they are from reputable authors, and when they were written, so to see whether they are still significant! Wikipedia is useful providing
you use the references tab at
the bottom, which if used and
searched further, can provide
the information needed to decide
if information is valid. Wikipedia
can be edited by anyone, so this is
vital, but as my course is very
"sciencey" it's unusual that anybody
other than scientists in that particular field comment on it! Thanks for viewing my Prezi presentation...
