PLE Chicken Roost

A. J. Cann asked 200 first years, “…to draw a mind map of their personal learning environment (PLE).”  The PLE chickens come home to roost
He says, “following what these students were reading on Google Reader and bookmarking on delicious throughout the past term has been a fascinating and for the most part rewarding experience. The students however, hated this task, and comments on the module questionnaire show a complete lack of understanding why reflection on learning might be valuable.”
….
“Clearly formal education alters a PLE. We just don’t know how, or how much.”
