Mikroyannidis, Alexander; Okada, Alexandra and Scott, Peter (2013). Personal Learning Environments for Inquiry-Based Learning. In: PLE conference 2013: Learning and Diversity in the Cities of the Future, July 2013, Proceedings, pp. 227–237.


Personal Learning Environments have recently emerged as a novel approach to learning, putting learners in the spotlight and providing them with the tools for building their own learning environments according to their specific learning needs and aspirations. This approach enables learners to take complete control over their learning, thus becoming self-regulated and independent. This paper introduces a new European initiative for supporting and enhancing inquiry-based learning through Personal Learning Environments consisting of personal and social inquiry tools. This approach aims at supporting students in developing their self-regulated learning skills by conducting their scientific inquiries in collaboration with their peers.
