1st Workshop on Exploring the Fitness and Evolvability of Personal Learning Environments (EFEPLE'11)

Abstract : Evolutionary or Darwinist theories are inherently controversial; applying them to explain and predict the trajectory of the development of Personal Learning Environments (PLE) is particularly challenging. PLE is still at its infancy stage, and a consensual definition is still lacking. Amongst others, the task of defining fitness models for predicting the rise and demise of specific widgets (which are commonly seen as the building blocks of PLE) and a specific configuration of PLE per se is daunting. The workshop is seen as the first step moving in the direction, though there are still many steps to be taken to achieve this seemingly insurmountable task. The initial step is seen as successful with intriguing ideas being conceived. Future work includes organizing a series of related workshops/seminars that involve participants with diverse backgrounds. Project proposals addressing the emergent topics are seen as a promising way to explore them in depth over a relatively long period of time. In the meantime several meetings amongst the workshop participants have been held to explore these possibilities.
