David Wiley #change11 mooc week 5 – post 3
markuos, Squire Morley
A couple of years ago I had a discussion with Martin Weller about ‘openness’ spanning his blog and mine. Over the past couple of days I’ve been considering this area again, with reference to David Wiley’s work. For some time … Continue reading → [Link] Thu, 13 Oct 2011 10:55:57 +0000 [Comment]

week 05
T, lúcidaTranslúcida
Do they need to start a university, a high school, or an after school program?This is a good question!I' m responsible for students in distance education system and find problems with the web 2.0 tools. Teachers workshops media do not offer the necessary explanations for a good understanding for pedagogical use in the classroom.But this is necessary for the universities which are located in pre school.These are the two extremes of necessary innovation.If you ask me what basic knowledge ....

Open Content
AK, Multilitteratus Incognitus
I was watching David Wiley's two videos (video 1 and video 2) on Open content, open publishing and open educational resource, oh and creative commons licensing too! I haven't had the chance yet to read the articles yet - but I plan on doing that before the weekend comes. I thought I would start off this week's Change thoughts on Open Content with my own history with it - and the cognitive dissonance that goes along with it!So one side of the brain acts in the persona of the ....

Does the abundance of online interactions overwhelm us and take a toll on our real-life interactions and relations? - Steven VerjansInteresting angle from MIT Prof Sherry Turkle about the impact of online technology on relations in society.

Response to David Wiley’s Challenge
jennymackness, Jenny Connected
I have responded to David Wiley’s request in ChangeMOOC 20011 – that we post a video or concept map or both about the change that we would like to see in some aspect of education. I have never taken on this type of challenge before and hope I don’t get ‘egg on my face’ [...] [Link] Wed, 12 Oct 2011 22:38:02 +0000 [Comment]

Shades of knowing?
AK, Multilitteratus Incognitus
Wow, I honestly didn't think that my open pondering about "knowing" would get this traction - but this is the beauty of the massive open course (and heck...perhaps this is a great example of collective learning!)First, Brainy Smurf wrote an interesting post about the process (or perhaps the indicators) which are necessary for him to write a response to something he finds online. I have to say that he's hit the nail on the head with most indicators. I do dislike .... [Link] Wed, 12 Oct 2011 21:24:00 +0000 [Comment]

Returning to the roots
jupidu, ZML Didaktik / Innovative Learning Scenarios
As I cannot find content of week 5 (?? maybe I’m overworked…) I returned to my perception of the MOOC itself. And discovered Stephen’s MOOC guide in Google Sites. It is interesting to read about the past MOOCs – one only lasted 6 weeks, another was run in Moodle (would be a much too closed [...] [Link] Wed, 12 Oct 2011 20:38:00 +0000 [Comment]

Thoughts about MOOC as an model of engagement for staff development

While participating in the #change11 MOOC, I’ve been considering the model of engagement with MOOCs as a possible for model for engaging staff with technology enhanced learning and teaching.

Open Content – I like it! David Wiley #change11
svmoose, Inside Irene Gould's head
I like the work David has done for availability of educational materials. I think education should be seen as a basic necessity of life. Not indoctrination forced upon the people, mind you. But available, to be able to pick and choose from. I was born in Holland and grew up in a working class environment [...] [Link] Wed, 12 Oct 2011 12:43:16 +0000 [Comment]

Connecting the dots between digital awakening, massive online learning and cooperation literacies
rolandlegrand, MixedRealities
I should have done this earlier on already, but here it is (or rather, it’s developing): a mindmap about my online learning experiment. I try to connect the dots between the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) Change11 (facilitated by Dave Cormier, George Siemens, Stephen Downes) , the Digital Awakening (Gardner Campbell)  and Introduction to [Link] Wed, 12 Oct 2011 11:54:13 +0000 [Comment]

Going open – some reflections on the implications of 'open content'

This reflection was prompted by an essay by David Wiley in (#change11). I cannot and do not want to claim that what I am about to share is 'true' for all open, distance and e-learning institutions. I do furthermore … Continue reading → [Link] Wed, 12 Oct 2011 12:56:25 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 week 5 – OER, open textbooks
John Kuti, feel do think
I think the apparent contradiction between “good” context-laden materials and “bad” universally applicable materials is worthy of further discussion. In my opinion this goes much more for language learning than for what I call content subjects – where the good … Continue reading → [Link] Wed, 12 Oct 2011 10:30:19 +0000 [Comment]

The Arc of Two Swords In Learning
rainbowhill, In Learning
Let me describe the arc of my academic career with two swords. When I left highschool, I left home, and lived close to university with a family friend. I had to work to support myself, although I did receive a small amount of Austudy. I remember being very lonely, only one other senior from my highschool went to UQ and he was in anthropology, and I was in human movements, so we rarely got to see each other. In the large first year lecture halls I enjoyed lecturers that were, in a sense, .... [Link] Wed, 12 Oct 2011 21:07:00 +1000 [Comment]
