Com aprenem en un món digital? Els entorns personals d'aprenentatge: experiències en català

General information

According to Jordi Adell & Linda Castañeda (2010), Personal Learning Environments (PLE) is a set of tools, services, relationships, connections and interactions that we could use regularly and encourage our learning. PLE is currently associated with Web 2.0 because it is through the Internet that we can have comprehensive, dynamic, connected PLE with many services easily accessible. The focus on PLE of this course is twofold: make teachers aware of the importance of improving their PLE as the same time as they make their students improve their own PLE. The ultimate goal is to ensure that ICTs are part of Catalan teaching methodologies in particular and of languages in general. In this course, we will try to achieve this goal based on the active learning experiences of teachers from different educational levels. This course is, in the end, a good opportunity to discover the most innovative trends in the teaching-learning process of the Catalan language.
