On Next Generation Digital Learning Environments

Commentary by Stephen Downes

During my talk yesterday someone asked, "which will I see first: a PLE, or a unicorn?" The money seemed to be on the unicorn. But something like a personal learning environment seems to e getting closer and closer. Case in point: the Nordic model for human centered personal data management and processing. Jim Groom writes, "I really am compelled by the MyData model in the Scandinavian countries because they may be able to pull it off." And his own model of the web as e-learning platform is finally getting some traction from no less than the Horizon Report (for what that's worth). "The reframing of how we imagine personal data and the work we do inside and outside of a particular course does become an interesting moment for re-positioning the faculty or the student as a node within a broader network through which they share with one another." As I said yesterday, one of these days the PLE will be "invented" by someone at Stanford or MIT. That's how these things go.
