PLEs are not only personal
web tools and personal
learning networks. PLEs
are much wider than this,
taking in experiences and
realia, as well as learning
through TV, music, paper
based materials, radio &
more formal contexts.
Learning content is not as
important now as where
(or who) to connect to, to
find it.
PWTs are any web tools,
(usually Web 2.0) chosen
by learners to support
their lifelong learning.

In the act
of writing...
...we are
written.
- Daniel Chandler

In Greek mythology Odysseus of Ithaca
went to fight in the Trojan War and
entrusted the care of his son,
Telemachus, to an older and wiser friend,
Mentor.
Telemachus and Mentor developed a
strong relationship built on the
foundations of guidance and support.
The word “mentor” has become
synonymous with teacher, counsellor,
coach, facilitator, motivator and friend.

Telematic Mentoring
• Blogs effective for mentoring over a
distance
• More reflective conversations
• Archive: ability to revisit conversations
• Blog mentors need to be proactive in
seeking out student posts
• Blogs are learning tools in their own
right

How can we get students to work
collaboratively?

• Hidden ‘audience’ encouraged greater care in
writing:
“I have to consentrate more on my spelling, and
grammar so that is makes sense for the person
who is reading it.. and I have to read [it]
mulitple times before posting it!”

What do we know about wikis?
• Use of wikis encouraged more accurate
referencing:
“...my referencing has improved through using
the wiki, as it had made me realise how
important it is to state where you got your
information from initially.”

What do we know about wikis?
• Use of wikis encouraged greater critical
awareness:
“… I am now developing a healthy critical and
analytical writing style thanks to the wiki.
Looking at other people’s opinions and
findings has helped me to question what’s in
front of me …”
