Reinhardt, Wolfgang and Ullmann, Thomas (2011). Editorial: Awareness and reflection in personal learning environments. In: Reinhardt, Wolfgang and Ullmann, Thomas eds. Proceedings of the 1st Workshop on Awareness and Reflection in Personal Learning Environments. In Conjunction with the PLE Conference 2011. Southampton, United Kingdom, July 11, 2011. Not known, pp. 2–9.


While different researchers have stressed the importance of awareness and reflection support in Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) there is no agreed set of such functionalities in existence yet. Also we lack a structured overview of awareness and reflections issues that learners are facing in their daily learning activities. As both researchers and developers interested in the PLE domain seem to be in need of such information in order to best tailor their R&D activities, this workshop brought together participants from educational science, psychology, social science, computer science, and design to collect requirements and open issues in the domain.
