1st Workshop on Exploring the Fitness and Evolvability of Personal Learning Environments (EFEPLE11). White Paper
n the recent decade a plethora of interactive software tools, be they open source or proprietary, have emerged and perished in the realm of technology‐enhanced learning (TEL). Concomitantly, there have also been surge and demise of contents, social networks, and activities associated with the use of these TEL tools. It is intriguing to understand what factors contribute to their rises and falls, and how. While controversies on the viability of making an analogy between the evolution of natural and artificial objects prevail, it is deemed worthwhile to explore its potential for analysing the changes in TEL and charting the future.
