Abstract: The profound changes that our society faces require continuous and thoughtful adaptations of the education system to the emerging demands of learning. Higher education is not immune to this reality. This article raises the need to lead a methodological change, renewing the traditional teaching-learning process. Self-Organized Learning Environments (SOLE) is one of the innovative teaching proposals to encourage learning in the society of Information requiring Lifelong Learning. Below, is a detailed methodological approach integrating the use of ICT with problem-based learning orientated towards the use of Personal Learning Environments (PLE) and SOLE according to the current social and educational demands.
