Authentic Learning
Clark, Learnlets, Dec 14, 2011
This week, #change11 is being hosted by Jan Herrington (who I had the pleasure of meeting in West Australia many years ago; highly recommended). She’s talking about authentic learning, and has a nice matrix separating task type and setting to help characterize her approach.  It’s an important component of making our learning more effective.  On [...] Wed, 14 Dec 2011 09:29:46 +0000 [Comment]

Initial reflections on Slow Learning #change11
Clark, Learnlets, Dec 06, 2011
I have to say that I found the comments on my initial post very interesting and challenging.  A couple of themes have emerged that partly I want to elaborate on, and partly want to reflect upon.  I believe in, and do try, ‘learning out loud’, so I’ll both try to elaborate and draw myself up [...] Tue, 06 Dec 2011 09:30:16 +0000 [Comment]
