Think-Know Tools: An Online Learning Community Facilitated by Howard Rheingold

Think-Know Tools: An Online Learning Community Facilitated by Howard Rheingold | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Think-know Tools dives into both the theoretical-historical background of intellect augmentation and the practical skills of personal knowledge management. Now that we have access to powerful mind-amplifying devices and self-evolving collective intelligence networks, we can benefit ourselves and improve the commons by learning how knowledge technologies work and how to work them:

  • Modules on Roots & Visions of Augmentation and The Extended Mind establish a conceptual-theoretical-empirical basis for understanding and discussing both the origin and future of tools specifically devised to magnify thinking capabilities and group problem-solving capacity.
  • Modules on Social BookmarkingConcept Mapping, and Personal Knowledge Management introduce practical tools and practices for finding, storing, refining, sharing, exploring knowledge.
  • Learning activities include group bookmarking as focused collective intelligence, concept map-making for understanding systems, construction of knowledge-plexes with Personal Brain.

I've found that library media specialists have an edge when it come to learning how to teach online. Librarians are masters of information. Understanding how to fully utilize online resources is one of foundation competencies for teaching online. ~ Dennis
