Reflections for week 1

  1. What are your learning goals for this course?
  2. In what ways are you hoping to connect what you learn here with your own practice?

1) My learning goals include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • understanding what the 'PLE paradigm' covers, and what it implies for formal education 
  • making new (online) friends, with whom i can discuss (mostly) PLE related stuff 
  • deepen my reflections on PLE, and get more thoughts out in the clear 
  • widen my learning network for the PLE/PLN topic 
  • assemble more academic resources on PLEs 
  • formulate a (somewhat) coherent framework regarding PLEs that i can share with educators 

2) My expectations regarding practice come from a trainer's perspective: i want to articulate a framework i can put to test with 'traditional' teachers and other non-formal NGO-type groups. Actually, i would go as far as trying to get that framework tested in informal groups i work with. 

Also, since i've recently joined a virtual team/organization that delivers trainings, i hope i can enrich what we do with the application of pertinent elements of both MOOC styled educational activities and PLEs approaches.
