Things I need to include

November 20, 2010

As I think about my topic, I realize there are areas I need to research. In essence, when examining what role Twitter plays in the formation and development of PLN’s, I am actually looking at one of the tools of a Personal learning Environment (PLE), so I need to include some inforamtion about what a PLE is, and how it relates to my topic.

Additionally, while much of my lit review is done, I think i need to revisit and add some more theoretical underpinnings to my lit review, specifically adding in Social Learning Theory. While I do touch on CoP’s and NoP’s in the lit review, I do not have anything about social learning, specifically the work of Bandura and modelling, or Vygotsky and the ZPD, both of which would be highly appropriate to this topic. I have spent a lot of time on informal learning, which is an important dimension, but I think I am missing a piece without acknowledging these two theories.  Finally, the work of Illich and learning webs also needs to be looked at, along with an explanation of networked learning.
