Video- LMS vs PLEs

PLEs meet LMSs

This 4 min 30 sec YouTube video is an ‘animated’ chat about the differences between Learning Management Systems (the man) and Personal Learning Environments (the boy).


  1. Enjoyable, but I was taken aback just a little when the kid informs Mr. Martin, the teacher, “I’m a digital native. I was born without fear of change.” Wow! Let that one sink in.

    Then keep watching: this dorky old teacher (wearing a combover and a brown suit, and hired by his friend, the principal, to scan notes for the “school’s system”) undergoes a significant transition in a five-minute conversation — and in the end seems quite capable of change. It appears that this otherwise nicely done story corrects its own script, in a good way…if that makes any sense.
