Last week I attended the LOGOS Final Conference on New Technology Platforms for Learning in Budapest, Hungary.
My contribution to the workshop have ranged from one-page abstract: Learn-Streaming Support for Personal Learning Networks.
Within all learning environments, we think that the model based on a Personal Learning Network (PLN) is the one that best accomplishes life-long learning and ESHE’s (European Space for Higher Education) goals. In a PLN, every learner uses a Personal Learning Environment (PLE) that assists him searching, retrieving, reusing, editing, sharing and publishing Digital Learning Resources (DLR) such as posts, images, videos and learning objects. A PLE is designed as a mash-up of personalized services, both institutional and external, that reflects individual learning preferences and collaborative work, and tracks the learn-streaming of the student.
Learn-streaming simply means publishing and sharing daily learning activities that constitute life-long learning. It allows students to keep track of what they have done on-line. Institutions can benefit from it as learn-streaming allows to look up the individual activity of the students for curriculum purposes. The aggregation of the learn-streaming of every student allows the teacher to get a detailed picture of the progress achieved by him or her in a particular course or subject. The solution explored in this paper suggests a Network of Blogs for supporting learn-streaming storage.
This is the presentation I used in the workshop:
