Unwarranted Distinction (#change11)
Glenyan, A Point of Contact
There is something outside my house that makes me laugh every time I go anywhere. Below is a photo of a house that is just around the corner from where I live, I can see about one quarter of it from my front door. As you can see in the photo there is a road [...] [Link] Thu, 10 Nov 2011 11:58:55 +0000 [Comment]

Rhizomatic learning – Response for day 2 and 3
Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog » change11
I knew i wouldn’t get it done every night… but here is the second attempt at pulling together some threads of feedback and organizing them here for later. (see my intro post if you don’t know what i’m talking about) A metaphor too far Terry Anderson layed a pretty heavy critique on the session from [...] [Link] Thu, 10 Nov 2011 00:24:57 +0000 [Comment]

#Change11 Education and Rhizome – My reflection
suifaijohnmak, Learner Weblog
After reading Terry’s post alienated from Change 11 MOOC. “I see the EduPunk culture becoming a very exclusionary technocracy. And to be frank, not one that I really aspire to join. Maybe Moocs are its 'educational schoolrooms'.” I have mixed feelings. … Continue reading → [Link] Thu, 10 Nov 2011 00:00:05 +0000 [Comment]

Video Conferencing Example
umair, #change11
I used to work at a College in Northern Alberta, Canada, they had campuses scattered all across Northern Alberta. The challenge was to offer classes to the students in these locations. The solution was Video Conferencing. So the instructor would be in one location and have the other students attend using a Video Conferencing System. So in theory and for the most part this worked well. Instructor was able to see and hear the students and vice-versa, instructor would have a PowerPoint and ....

I really appreciate Nancy White's recap of her week...
Claudia LAmoreaux, MOOCing About
I really appreciate Nancy White's recap of her week hosting #change11 conversation on Social Artistry. I like having a new role available for artist. And a new skill to wield more consciously through awareness. Nancy borrowed the term from Etienne Wagner. Here's a quote from Etienne she pulled from David Wilcox's blog...I want to capture it here in my own #change11 trail notes (my bolds): "The key success factor we've found is learning citizenship where ....

Slavoj Zizek and Rhizomatic Learning
Jeffrey Keefer, Silence and Voice
As Dave Cormier is speaking about Rhizomatic learning this week in the #change11 MOOC, I thought about this recent interview Charlie Rose had with the philosopher and cultural critic, Slavoj Zizek. While I know that Dave’s work on rhizomatic learning does not have the same critical lens that Zizek uses, his way OPENBLOCK... [Link] Wed, 09 Nov 2011 15:55:56 +0000 [Comment]

Was sind MOOCs – Multiple Open Online Courses?
jupidu, ZML Didaktik / Innovative Learning Scenarios
Während der letzten vier Jahre haben TrainerInnen weltweit damit experimentiert, Lernprozesse im virtuellen Raum weiterzuentwickeln und das Potential des Webs auszuschöpfen. Am ZML entwickelten wir reine Online-Trainings basierend auf sozialkonstruktivistischen Konzepten und nach dem 5 Stufenmodell von Gilly Salmon für virtuelle Gruppen. Dabei beschränkten wir uns auf den geschützten Raum einer Lernplattform, auch wenn manche [...] [Link] Wed, 09 Nov 2011 15:01:57 +0000 [Comment]

the rhizomatic learning lens & what rhizomes are good for
bon, » change11
Confession: I’m not entirely sure what week it is in #change11. Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are tricky creatures, their possibilities and to-do lists inclined to slip away from you and multiply like rabbits the minute you look in another direction. Especially this “mother of all MOOCs,” with its 36 consecutive facilitators and topics. For [...] [Link] Wed, 09 Nov 2011 15:01:02 +0000 [Comment]

Metaphors that don't work for me - Social Artists, Rhizomes, Nomads
George, Educational Technology - Insights
We are categorisers. It is how our brains work. We can't help placing labels on concepts and this helps us refer to huge ideas in a simple way.We use metaphors as particularly apt labels. The mind-ideas generated by the metaphor helps us remember and work with the concepts.I have found both the Social Artist metaphor and now the Rhizomatic Learning (including Workers, Soldiers and Nomads) particularly difficult to work with.Dave Cormier's facilitation on #change11 MOOC's session ....

About expectations and learning with Dave #change11
svmoose, Inside Irene Gould's head
When you have expectations, you can get disappointed. I found that out yesterday during the live session with Dave. I had looked at his talk with Jeff and Jenny, at his live slide show with librarians, and at his explanation on what he does for accreditation. It all appealed to me. Add on top of [...] [Link] Wed, 09 Nov 2011 14:06:55 +0000 [Comment]
