Personal Learning Environments (PLE)
Stephen Downes has been doing a number of presentations, including discussing the PLE: Vienna, Innsbruck and Toronto. I really like the emphasis on learners controlling their learning and controlling their learning environments.

The challenge for me is what is the role of the teacher and educational institutions in all of this. Welsey Fryer provides some ideas with his emphasis on project based learning. Improving instruction through use of weblog provides some hints on how weblogs can be used.

Graham Wegner provides an insight into the primary school classroom and emphasising it is not about information transfer (great cartoon in this page).
