Abstract: In contrast to institutionally-controlled and teacher directed curricula, personal learning environments (PLE’s) are learner-centric, providing relevant and timely learning opportunities by enabling individuals to select, integrate and use various software, services and options based on their needs and circumstance. This approach ideally leads to a model where learner needs drive the learning process. In PLE’s, teacher pedagogy undergo a radical shift to allow learners to make decisions that best suit their goals and needs for acquisition of skills, knowledge construction, social interaction and collaboration.The pedagogy of personalised learning is multidimensional and supported by Web 2.0tools and social media.
