PLE update

I’ve been away due to a death in my family.  I’ve missed writing these posts.

On December 8 I posted about the concept of a personal learning environment (PLE).  I ended the post by saying that I would be examining my own PLE.  How have I fared in this challenge?

So far I have listed a number of programs that I use.  I have noted how frequently (or infrequently) I use them.  As a result I dropped one program that I was not using after all.  I’ve identified other programs that I consider useful for occasional projects.  These would be candidates for further evaluation.

I’ve also rediscovered a program that will prove more useful than I’d first thought.  I simply need to practice with it.

Obviously the process is ongoing–like information literacy itself.  I’m glad to be back sharing my progress.
