iPad Class Experience part 4
Lars Was, Lars Was, Jan 22, 2012
Still no luck with the WiFi connection, but we “managed” to complete our goals of the second lesson with the aid of some netbooks along side the iPads. On monday 1 last ultimate effort to get the iPads working on our school network, keep your fingers crossed! But, where technology let us down, the students [...] Sun, 22 Jan 2012 17:14:37 +0000 [Comment]

iPad Class Experience part 3
Lars Was, Lars Was, Jan 19, 2012
Looks like the gods are not with us. Yesterday was not such a great start with our iPad project. We kept on being prompted to re-connect with the proxy server, making it practically impossible to get on with the assignments… Looked online for some answers, but it seems that Apple is letting us down in [...] Thu, 19 Jan 2012 09:26:35 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 Network thinking…
Lars Was, Lars Was, Dec 17, 2011
I came across this blogpost today, written by Harold Jarche and mentioned by Wilfred Rubens. He explains a summary by Curtis Ogden of the differences between network-centric and hierarchy-centric thinking, called “Network Thinking”. Based upon 5 ideas, this theory is a refreshing view on how we should organize: Adaptability instead of control Emergence instead of predictability Resilience and redundancy [...] Sat, 17 Dec 2011 13:52:51 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 Mobile Learning
Lars Was, Lars Was, Dec 01, 2011
Interesting infograph (by StudyBlue) about how students use/learn with their smartphones. The way we learn is definitely changing. Smartphones will be a part of it, I think. I just don’t know how exactly. Some time ago I lurked the MobiMOOC for a while and listened to Zoraini Wati Abas as part of the Change11 MOOC. It [...] Thu, 01 Dec 2011 16:40:51 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 Badges?
Lars Was, Lars Was, Nov 30, 2011
I came across Jaap’s article today, referring to the Mozilla Open Badges program and I must say I liked the idea of expressing your skills, your attendance to an online course, etc. Maybe badges aren’t the “definitive” way of assessment, but they could help figuring out new ways of evaluation. However, the real question is [...] Wed, 30 Nov 2011 12:52:42 +0000 [Comment]

Ok! Here we go again! A new MOOC coming up, and it’s big. Huge! A 36 week endeavor that will connect us with a great number of people willing to share something about education, technology, learning, connectivism, elearning, etc. I’m really looking forward to this MOOC! George Siemens, Stephen Downes and Dave Cormier will be facilitating [...] Tue, 13 Sep 2011 15:48:00 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 – Mobile learning at OUM
Lars Was, eConnections, Nov 11, 2011
Interesting paper about a mobile learning project in Malaysia.

Students received an [...] Mon, 19 Sep 2011 15:51:09 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 – Rhizomatic Learning
Lars Was, eConnections, Nov 11, 2011
Enlightening. This theory is as fun as it is chaotic. Never thought I would say this, but I’m beginning to like chaos… Dave Cormier is teaching “Rhizomatic Learning” this week in Change11. This theory finds its origins in a plant. Rhizomes are plants that, when given the chance, will take over your entire garden! They [...] Wed, 09 Nov 2011 18:54:14 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 – Digital scholarship
Lars Was, eConnections, Nov 11, 2011
Week 3 and I’m already falling behind… Not so good, but I’ll try not to worry and carry on! Martin Weller talked about digital scholarship this week. A subject open to a lot of debate, because it changes the classical view people have on scholarship. A scholarship used to be about learning something at some [...] Wed, 05 Oct 2011 15:36:11 +0000 [Comment]
