14 Personal Learning Environments Personal Learning Environment Personal Learning Network Personal Web Tools Source: steve-wheeler.blogspot.com/2010/07/anatomy-of-ple.html PLEs are not only personal web tools and personal learning networks. PLEs are much wider than this, taking in experiences and realia, as well as learning through TV, music, paper based materials, radio & more formal contexts. Learning content is not as important now as where (or who) to connect to, to find it. PWTs are any web tools, (usually Web 2.0) chosen by learners to support their lifelong learning. Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011

21 Hidden ‘audience’ encouraged greater care in writing: “I have to consentrate more on my spelling, and grammar so that is makes sense for the person who is reading it.. and I have to read [it] mulitple times before posting it!” (1st Year female) What do we know about wikis? Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011 Wheeler S and Wheeler D (2009) Using wikis to promote quality learning outcomes in teacher training. Learning, Media and Technology. 34 (1), 1-10.

22 Use of wikis encouraged more accurate referencing: “...my referencing has improved through using the wiki, as it had made me realise how important it is to state where you got your information from initially.” (2nd Year female) What do we know about wikis? Wheeler S (2010) Using Wikis in Teacher Education: Student generated content as support in professional learning. In MJW Lee and C McLoughlin (Eds.) Web 2. 0-Based E-Learning: Applying Social Informatics for Tertiary Teaching. Hershey, PA: IGI Global Press. Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011

23 Use of wikis encouraged greater critical awareness: “… I am now developing a healthy critical and analytical writing style thanks to the wiki. Looking at other people’s opinions and findings has helped me to question what’s in front of me …” (2nd Year male) What do we know about wikis? Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011 Wheeler S and Wheeler D (2009) Using wikis to promote quality learning outcomes in teacher training. Learning, Media and Technology. 34 (1), 1-10.
