Double the buzzword fun!
I’ve only glazingly-eyed scanned some things people are writing about “Personal Learning Environments”, but I just wonder if you create a TLA (Three Letter Acronym) on something, does that mean it really exists?
But I understand, embrace, and cheer the notion that the tapestry of free, loosely connected, highly personal technologies (and so many of them are like, “Web 2.0”) that have the nice viral growth of use tat is running smack up and against the philosophy, structure, rigidness, lethargym fees, of our “established” educational technologies. I like the tension. Bring it on.
I am more than open to being wrong, and guess I should read a bit more on the work being done, but at this point, it seems a bit, well, vapor-ous.
By the time I figure it out, it will be up to the 2.0 version. And I still may not get it.
