Using student-owned technologies in educational ict

This article by Scott Wilson of CETIS succintly analyses the concept of PLE’s in terms of ‘what they could be’ and ‘why they should be’.

In my role I think that it would be interesting to try and deliver elearning through various non institutional applications inlcuding social networking, blogs, instant messaging, RSS (inlcuding communal RSS such as affeda), VOIP, social bookmarking and other softwares.

I am however in no doubt as to the challenges that this would create not least in terms of managing users and their communication preferences.
