A great post from Stephen Downes here on personal learning environments [PLEs] and reflecting on the experience of running the connectivism course. I was taken with the argument that the value PLEs is greatly enhanced by extending social networks – a similar argument to the one made here by Malinka Ivanova.

The paper reminded me of a quote – can’t remember who made it or when [which is a bit useless I know] – along the lines of: “we learn but I just get to know things”.
