If we want to use new media to spread the gospel, think about a place individual users constructed activities, show the process they went through to gain their understanding, see some of the learning objects and resources they used, invite friends to participate, rather than subscribing to courses or having courses allocated to them. I can see a convert to the church explaining how he/she learned about doctrinal concepts and how they applied them and gave others ideas on how they can apply them. Think using PLE to model a certain way that students learned a topic. . . learning objects and resources he/she found valuable. I am kicking around the idea of how PLE relates to life long learning and what it would look like. Also, I came across a diagram by Stephen Downes about PLE which I am not sure I understand http://www.gliffy.com/pubdoc/1092065/L.jpg . Can someone shed some light on it?
