#change11 farewell and thanks
robsnell84, justlearning, May 18, 2012
My last blog post was 2 months ago – I certainly slipped on the regular sessions and my interaction slipped. However, I am pleased to say that I read enough of Kaufman to understand what living on the edge of chaos means. I have been able to reflect on what that means for knowledge management [...] Fri, 18 May 2012 09:41:40 +0000 [Comment]

#change11 personal learning journey
robsnell84, justlearning, Mar 18, 2012
The change 11 MOOC has been immensely engaging and motivational. It has inspired me to learn about new areas of knowledge  and learning theory. The Cynethin model and IEML have been the highlights and although have taken repeated reading to get my head around both of them, have been the most rewarding. They have have [...] Sun, 18 Mar 2012 08:08:40 +0000 [Comment]

Social media and the change form information to formation « Esko Kilpi on Interactive Value Creation. #change11 This link was posted on the IEML Facebook page. He may or may not be a MOOCer but the topic relates to connectivism, knowledge management and creative conversations. I hope he doesn’t mind me sharing the post with [...] Sun, 04 Mar 2012 15:14:33 +0000 [Comment]

You say you want an evolution? #change11
robsnell84, justlearning, Feb 29, 2012
You say you want an evolution? #change11. This is a prezi I have added to as part of an invitation by another MOOC participant – I very creative way to initiate a ‘creative conversation’. The theme is to assess the use of digital media as evolving forms of communication in light of the tools that [...] Wed, 29 Feb 2012 15:18:20 +0000 [Comment]

IEML No.2 #change11 Chinese students
robsnell84, justlearning, Feb 19, 2012
After learning so much just about learning, I decided to miss the week covering research about research. IEML has struck a chord, I have almost continually re-read the readings (chps 1,4,7 Semantic sphere Vol1) until I finally understand and grasp at least the foundations. As I’m absorbed in creating a language learning experience for L2 [...] Mon, 20 Feb 2012 00:06:14 +0000 [Comment]

IEML #change11
robsnell84, justlearning, Feb 09, 2012
Attended my second live session (finished at 1.30am here), this one I had been reading up on and was very excited to learn about – a meta language for mapping out human intelligence in order for it to be used for collective intelligence. I started by reading Chapter 1 of the Semantic Sphere and quickly [...] Thu, 09 Feb 2012 15:13:28 +0000 [Comment]

Heutagogy, wisdom of crowds, complicated environments, blogging, comparative advantage #change11
robsnell84, justlearning, Feb 05, 2012
I’m going to use this reflective post to attempt to link all these concepts. Actually I’m not quite sure what I’ve missed or haven’t missed in terms of the sessions of change11 (and LAK12 although time has limited me to more of a lurker in that one, more just a bit of reading on the [...] Sun, 05 Feb 2012 06:17:13 +0000 [Comment]

Cynefin and NGO projects M&E #change11
robsnell84, justlearning, Jan 21, 2012
I can now spell it correctly and have read up.;-) I had an ‘aha’ moment when I realised that the concept of operating in complex environments related to working in conflict and post-disaster areas in NGO capacity. The process of intervention seemed to fit, the cause and effect relationships could only be mapped to a [...] Sat, 21 Jan 2012 08:14:08 +0000 [Comment]

Musings on Dave Snowden session, world evolution etc ;-) #change11
robsnell84, justlearning, Jan 19, 2012
So, err, right – that was a bit over my head or rather to articulate in ‘learning’ language, I think my base of knowledge was not sufficiently deep in order to provide a base of concepts to integrate the new concepts on top of/into, adapt. Still not sure what ‘Cynethia (- spelt right?) is but [...] Thu, 19 Jan 2012 16:06:42 +0000 [Comment]

University education
robsnell84, justlearning, Jan 11, 2012
I joined my first live session of #change11 this morning. Students want lower fees, multiple access opportunities, more personalised learning content, students want their learning certified. Universities want to maintain high fees, pull as many students as possible to the campus and deliver same modular courses Why are only MIT and Stanford able to offer [...] Thu, 12 Jan 2012 00:06:02 +0000 [Comment]

Developing a personal learning process
robsnell84, justlearning, Jan 07, 2012
This week, as part of my #change11 learning, I have tried out some new tools related to concept mapping, read a fair amount on rhizomatic learning and smart learning – using RSS filtering etc. Found a great site to send me recommended reading based on my linked in and twitter activity: elearning learning. I also started [...] Sat, 07 Jan 2012 07:02:48 +0000 [Comment]

My learning process
robsnell84, justlearning, Jan 03, 2012
Go to a conference, sign up for an MA or join a MOOC and get it all for free plus a bit more. What follows below is likely to be a ramble (apologies to anyone who reads this ;-0 ) of related reflections on learning, initiated by joining #change11 a Mass Online Open Course about [...] Mon, 02 Jan 2012 05:45:12 +0000 [Comment]
