Cool Thing: PLE conference July 2010

PLE Conference 2010

Date: July 8, 2010 - July 9, 2010
Place: Barcelona, Spain


The PLE Conference is intended to produce a space for researchers and practitioners to exchange ideas, experience and research around the development and implementation of PLEs including the design of environments, sociological and educational issues and their effectiveness and desirability as (informal) learning spaces.

Whilst the conference will include a traditional research paper strand, we also wish to encourage proposals for sessions in different formats including workshops, posters, debates, cafe sessions, hands on sessions and demonstrations. We will also provide opportunities for unconferencing events, including the provision of spaces for informal meetings and discussions.

The face to face conference will take place in the Open Innovation Centre for the Community in Barcelona. The Centre located in a converted factory, provides a variety of purpose designed spaces for exchanging ideas, including an auditorium, meeting rooms and spaces for informal discussions.

The centre is also well equipped with multi media and there will be free access to a fast wireless network throughout the venue.

The conference will utilise multiple on line spaces including a web site xxx, and a social networking space for participants as well as other social software.

Conference themes include (but are not limited to):

  • Theories and frameworks for Personal Learning Environments
  • Technologies and software for developing Personal Learning Environments
  • PLEs in Practice (case studies, approaches to using PLEs)
  • Educational institutions, change and PLEs
  • Pedagogical approaches to managing personal learning
  • the development and management of Personal Learning Networks
  • Mobile PLEs and augmented reality
  • Supporting informal and and contextual learning
  • Using PLEs in organisations
  • Using PLEs for Work based learning
