#NRC01PL – What does personal learning mean to me?

Jenny Connected

This is the question we have been asked to respond to in Week 4 of the Personal Learning MOOC (#NRC01PL). In other words, freedom to learn when, where, how, and with whom I want to. For example, if part of my PLE is a learning management system (LMS), then I will experience constraints within that system, but ideally it will have been my choice to have an LMS within my PLE. I have a fairly standard set of tools that I use all the time.
