ePortfolios-DNA of PLEs

Graham Attwell’s captured a nice analogy in this paper– claiming that ePortfolios are the building blocks for PLEs (attribute to Serge Ravet). While ePortfolios might have a primary pedagogical purpose, I’d contend that PLEs have a broader purpose: to define and occupy yourself in a social network. A PLE is a platform for harnessing and engaging in both formal and informal learning and identity creation across a range of contexts- educational and social. Look forward to his forthcoming work on this theme.
