Technology and MOOC’s (#change11)
Mike McCracken, mikemccchangeblog
I have sat in a few of the MOOC talks over the last few weeks.  The proliferation of technologies used by the MOOC facilitators and the numerous methods participants have for interacting with other participants. I’m a simple kind of guy and it seems to me that we as technologists ought to make the process [...] [Link] Thu, 06 Oct 2011 11:37:11 +0000 [Comment]

A few thoughts on complexity (#change11)
Mike McCracken, mikemccchangeblog
I watched Allison Littlejohn’s narrated slides today and was interested in her comments about the tool they are developing that supports collective learning.  It reminded me of the comments I made yesterday about the need for the MOOC button. I’m a slow learner but I realized that what I said yesterday and what Allison was [...] [Link] Fri, 07 Oct 2011 11:10:25 +0000 [Comment]

Five Card Stories
Mark Mcguire, Mark McGuire's Blog
While sniffing around on the Internet this evening, I came across Alan Levine‘s CodDogBlog, and I followed a scent to his Five Card Stories project. As he explains, “You are dealt five random photos for each draw, and your task is to select one each time to add to a selection of images, that taken together as a final [...] [Link] Fri, 14 Oct 2011 08:54:55 +0000 [Comment]

‘Who watches tv anymore anyway among young people? Nobody’
rolandlegrand, MixedRealities
I had no idea professor Sachs could be so angry and passionate (a big believer in social media, also saying “who watches tv anymore anyway among young people? nobody”) – I don’t know whether he’s right about this tv-thing, but his rant is impressive: [Link] Thu, 13 Oct 2011 22:28:27 +0000 [Comment]

David Wiley: Openness in education and the future of education

My notes to the video „Openness in education and the future of education“ Definition: open educational resscources (OER) – freely shared teaching materials promotimg the 4R activities: Reuse, Redistribute, Revise, Remix – it’s about sharing, about being generous Role of openness in education: „is the only mean of doing education“ „if there is no sharing [...] [Link] Thu, 13 Oct 2011 19:22:57 +0000 [Comment]

Great synthesis and reflection of change11 week 4 by Colin Milligan
jupidu, ZML Didaktik / Innovative Learning Scenarios
I enjoyed browsing Colin’s post and his links – and there emerged some questions: Reading Colin’s synthesis and reflection I discovered 4 familiar contributions (out of 7). So I have read and remembered 4 blog posts which were interesting for Colin as well. How is this possible in a multiple online course??

#change11 Starting to Appreciate Principles of OER
Mary Pringle, CDATA(0)
In addition to listening to David Wiley, I've also gone to a presentation by Wayne McIntosh of WikEducator. I'm starting to appreciate how his OER model might work. For instance, how would you build a network of volunteer instructors? I for one as an online teacher would volunteer to help bright and motivated students who can't afford regular university tuition--a refreshing change from paying students who see themselves as my customers (who are always right) and exhibit very ....

An open didactic triangle #change11
mdeimann, markusmind
What I most like about David Wiley’s ambitions to promote openness in education is his great talent to bring arguments to the bottom line. In presentation like this, he clearly points out the role of openness in education. Despite other implicit meanings of that, David Wiley goes on to postulate that openness is the only [...] [Link] Thu, 13 Oct 2011 15:34:43 +0000 [Comment]

Colin, Learning in the workplace
Here are some more posts which caught my eye from last week, along with any comments I have made (fewer comments as a proportion today).

I’ve read quite some blog posts this week. I find the topic intriguing but also sometimes difficult to follow in the sense that I am not a an academic or researcher.

Networked learning, CoPs and connectivism

The first Networked Learning Conference Hotseat with Peter Goodyear has attracted a lot of interesting discussion. Most of the discussion has centred on what is meant by networked learning and there seem to be as many definitions as there are people in the forum. Most agree that networked learning is about connecting people and ideas, [...] [Link] Thu, 13 Oct 2011 12:52:24 +0000 [Comment]
