This report (Wild, Kalz and Palmer, 2008) on the proceedings of the first conference on Mashups and Personal Learning Environments (MUPPLE) is interesting to me for the underlying concepts.
While it is necessarily focused on the technological developments that have allowed mash ups to become part of users’ armoury, there is an interesting parallel (explicit in the title but maybe less so in the content) with learning. As more tools become available learners are able to combine them (mash them up) for their own purposes. Personalisation of the curriculum is another parallel and these all have interesting consequences for assessment and for learners perception of capability. If someone appropriates tools for their own use are they, de facto, demonstrating high levels of ICT capability?
