The Article Personal Learning Environments by Andre Malan, shows educators the gaps that need to be filled with the way teachers use teaching techniques. A personal Learning Environment was originally developed for educators to get through to the students learning needs. Andre Malan explains that changes need to be made in our educational system.
I agree with Andre Malan, but doubt that Personal Learning Environments will work with everyone. If the topic is interesting to the student then yes the student will learn. At the same time, the student has to want to learn. Not every student finds the same topics interesting, therefor I feel that this way of learning will still not be 100% successful for 100% of students.
A student that is willing to learn and finds the curriculum interesting will most likely benefit from a Personal Learning Environment.
