Photo credit: Rob Shenk via photopin cc What’s wrong with VLE’s? Don’t encourage learners to take responsibility for their own learning, tools or digital literacy Outdated view of teaching as “push” Teacher at the centre not the student or the network Not integrated with the tools and environments for education Closed to networked learning Lock you in

The VLE is Dead - long live the PLE
