Mash­-Up Personal Learning Environments

Wild, Fridolin; Moedritscher, Felix and Sigurdarson, Steinn (2011). Mash­-Up Personal Learning Environments. In: Magoulas, George D. ed. E-Infrastructures and Technologies for Lifelong Learning: Next Generation Environments. IGI Global, Idea Group Publishing, pp. 126–149.




In this chapter, the authors formulate a critique on the contemporary models and theories of learning environment design, while at the same time proposing a new approach that puts the learner centre stage. It will be argued that this approach is more apt to explain technology-enhanced learning and is more helpful in guiding (even end-user driven) engineering and maintenance of personalized learning environments. The authors call this new approach a mash-up personal learning environment (MUPPLE) and it is a vision (and prototype) of the future of personalized, networked, and collaborative learning.
