A professional learning environment is one where anyone can come and learn what they need to know. It is one that enhances the learning and encourages people to think for themselves.

A producer of information is someone who gives information out for the world to take in. A consumer of infomation is one who takes in information from the world. There can be both good and bad consumers and producers of information. A good producer is one who is helpful and supplies the world with useful information. A good consumer is one who uses the information that they consume to produce new information.

What being in a professional learning environment means, in my opinion, is when students around you are not only impressed with their own work, but are impressed with yours as well. When other students are mature about each others work and are supportive of it. A professional learning environment, in my eyes, is when students are able to work together, teachers are able to communicate and give everyone help when it is needed, and to support one another in whatever they do.
A producer of information is someone who gives off some their own information to someone else while a consumer is someone who takes in all the information that is handed down to them.

To have a professional learning enviroment means that we are not going to be treated like we were in elementory school. It is more like th realy world. A producer of information tells information and writes about it, they give us infromation. A consumer of information takes in and reads the things that the producer made.

A professional learning enviroment for me is a quiet, comfortable and positive place which provides the opportunity to improve and seek answers to questions that one has.

A producer is one who provides imformation, such as a teacher, a newspaper reporter and a newsmaker. The consumer, such as a student or a person reading the newspaper, uses the imformation that is proved.

A professional learning environment means a place where you can work and not have many distractions. It’s a place where you can create ideas and thoughts to help you and everyone else willing to take it in.

Being a producer and consumer of information are both very important.
A producer gives information out to the consumer; the consumer takes in the information and makes it their own. Then that consumer produces the information they changed. All producers are consumers and all consumers are producers

A proffesional learning enviorment is somwhere were people come focused and ready to take as much knowledge as the proffeser is offering them. Also while learning in a proffesionl enviorment they all conduct themselves very orderly as not to distract others from there learning oppurtuninty.

Well i believe this question is quite self-explanatory in the fact that a proucer gives the info and the consumer receives it. I think that the producers are usually the out of the box thinkers, and that the consumers are people who want to know the out of the boxers theories so they can try to understand them.

A profesional learning enviroment is a place where work gets done accuratley and is on time. This enviroment also produces a good student because it gives you peace and quite to do your while still having a group atmosphere.

A professional learning enviroment is a place where you go to learn, not to mess around and hang out with friends. In this environment there are supplies for you to learn with and help answer your questions.

A producer of information is a person or thing that provides people with useful information. A consumer of information is a person who listens to the producer and takes it all in and stores the information in their brain.

A producer of information is different from a consumer because a producer thinks for him self and creates new ideas while a consumer spits back whatever was told to them without thought.

A professional learning enviroment is a place where you are tought the facts, not someones opionion. It means you are in a place where there is no complaining and you do the assingnments that you are told to do. It means that you come to learn.

A producer of information is someone who prints the news or creates it. A consumer of news is someone who reads it and/or reacts to it. For example, a producer of news can write a news paper article or win the world record for something, and a consumer will read about the story.

A professional learning enviroment is one where you can learn and teach. It should be a place where you can work with people in a reasonable matter without argueing. I agree with richard m that to have a succesful proffesional learning enviroment you must have fact, not opinion.

A producer is someone who provides the information or, gives it. The Producer is more involved than most others. A consumer is someone that sits back listens or reads the produced information.

A professional learning enviroment means your learning in a quiet,calm area. No Distractions.

A producer supplies the information and a consumer just listens to the information.

A professional learning environment is when someone can learn with out being disturbed. They should be able to be respectful not only to others but the teacher also. They should be able to learn, take notes, and read, with out the distraction of others.
A producer of information is someone who gives out or tells facts to the consumer. It is the consumer's job to listen and pay attention to the producer.

To me a professional learning inviroment is were every one is there to learn and respects every one elses willing ness to learn.

a producer of information is some one who helps consumers learn any information. A consumer of information is the one who is tought the information but also has to be willing to learn the information.

A professional learning enviroment is a place where people feel safe speaking out loud and talking about thier ideas/comments. A professional learning enviroment is a place where everyone feels comfertable learning the material.

A producer of information is someone who gives out information to everyone, or they create the information. A consumer of information is someone who just takes in information and doesn't give it out.

I think that a professional learning environment is when there are people around you that know what they are doing. Also, it is when those people can agree on a lot of the same things and when everyone helps eachother to learn all at the same pace.

The producer of information versus the consumer of information is that the producer is the one that is the primary source of the information that see's it first-hand. They are also the ones that know the information before anyone else does. The consumer is the one that gets the information as a secondary source that knows it later on. For example, a producer starts the rumor. The consumer hears about the rumor.

In my opinion, a professional learning environment is where you come focused and ready to learn. same with all of the other people in class. It is where you come to learn new things and get things done. There can not be a lot of clutter around you because that can be distracting towards your work.

The producer of information versus the consumer of information is, that the producer of information gives out info that they already know. The consumer is someone who does not know that information but learns or gets that from the producer.

I think that a professional learning enviorment should consist of hard workers who stay on task. Also, a professional learning enviorment should have a person who is control and watching out for others wether it be a boss or a teacher.Who are to act as the head of the "body" so that everything can run efficiently with no flaws. For if the "body" didn't have the head the "body" wouldn't function correctly or for that matter effeciciantly.

To be a producer of information means to write and give out the information versus a consumer of information is the one who take all the information in and reads or uses it.

What it means to have a professional learning enviroment is that you have a space of your own where you will be focused on the work and not get distraced something around you.

To be a producer of information means that you will be providing the information or giving it. To be a consumer means that you are taking the information in and learning from it.

A professional learning enviornment is one in which there are no childish comments or discussions I guess. It also, as Jordan said, is a place that you will have space to focus on and concentrate on the task at hand.

To be a producer of information basically means that you are talking, and sharing the knowledge that you have. To be a consumer of information would mean that you are being quiet and taking in the information that is being presented.

Having a proffesional learning environment means being able to work in a place in which you can focus and accomplish a given task.
Being able to have or consume knowledge will help you but if you are producing information and helping others it benefits you more in many ways.

What it means to have a profesional learning enviorment is its a place that is designaneted to learn in. It has the resources you need to learn. Such as books, computers and even teahcers.
When someone is a producer of information the provide information to someone. When someone is a consumer, they are like a sponge, they collect all of the information the producers are giving out

A professional learning environment means that I have a place to go for help and for learning new things. A professional learning environment has to be clean, well taken care of, and where there are books and other learning materials. A producer of information is like a teacher in a class. The teacher produces or gives the information to the students. Consumers of information are the kids in the class. They are the ones getting the information and learning from the information.

To have a professional learning environment means that you will have the best learning experians.
To be a producer of infro mation means that you have the knolledge to do so then not having and just now learning it.

A professional learning environment needs to have a space for students to do any written work and not too many distractions. There should also be a space where the students can sit down and learn. It should be a place where students feel comfortable asking questions and not feel stupid.

A producer of information, like a teacher, gives their students information. A consumer of information is a person who is willing to learn and takes in all the information they where given.

Having a perfessional learning enviorment means many things. Firstit meas that hard work is completed and with little or no distractions. Second, It means that people can learn a lot more than if you were in a nonperfessional class. Finally it is a place where help and expansion of the mind takes place and no one feels insecure.

A producer of information has a surplus of information waiting to share that information with someone else. A consumer of information is a person receiving the information from a producer of information.

a professional learning enviroment means that you have a designated or aprooved place in which learning can take place.

A producer of information is a dominant figure, one that generally stands at the front of the professional learning enviroment and outpores information like water out of a facet. A consumer of information is little, weak, unknowing, and far less superior than the producer. The consumer simply has to listen and learn from the all mighty producer
