shukie, Shukies Web
This is the first posting since joining the Change11 and the I am in a kind of alienated hinterland that has left me lost, in the processes of interaction, and of the network.  I have been excited asbout the potenyail for a new theory and spent much of the summer poring over the many voices that discuss connectivism as such.  It has been inspirational not becuase I am now happy that a theory exists that explains the clumsy awkward adaptions of other theoretical ....

Onward and outward
shukie, Shukies Web
Learning new ways of placing myself, and locating others, is still my main task. I work in a Higher Education college in the UK on an Education Studies programme - can't deny my own revolutionary tendencies in looking for a radical shift from the institutional model and I have been spending the last few months looking at connectivim thinking it may lie there - although 'there' doesn't really exist, it's rather a recognition of changes in knowledge and learning that ....

I've always been too busy slogging away at teaching about rather than doing. Absurdly, I've prepared countless lessons for my pre-service and graduate students on blogs, wikis, forums -- all the digital environments enhancing collaborative learning -- but had too little time to actually use blogs in real situations. So I've recently opened this blog as an area in which I hope to summarize experiences and post reflections as I participate in the Change MOOC (and hopefully have ....

Celebremos la diferencia
Verónica Vázquez Zentella, Con sabor educativo
Para nadie es un secreto que la diversidad es una fuente para la indagación, la interacción y el aprendizaje. Sin embargo, aun cuando nuestra riqueza y conocimiento estriba en la diversidad de pueblos y culturas, insistimos en tomar posturas inflexibles y unilaterales a este respecto, defendiendo –e imponiendo- nuestro punto de vista como si éste fuera absoluto. En un mar de infinitas posibilidades, nos negamos la oportunidad de aprender –desde la diferencia- algo nuevo. Erróneamente, .... [Link] Tue, 27 Sep 2011 13:21:00 +0000 [Comment]

Catalysts and Tea(coa)chers for distributed learning
Jennifer Sinclair, The MOOCow
The MOOC is a model that invites questions about the role, perhaps even the redundancy, of teachers in a self-directed learning environment. Although key people deliver what could be called core content in a MOOC (although even attending to that is optional) these people are perhaps not teachers in the conventional sense.Clearly they have a deeper knowledge of their topics than (most) others in the MOOC and presumably have been invited to contribute because they have spent time thinking about ....
