Vialogues : Peter Gray: Play-full Research

Vialogues : Peter Gray: Play-full Research | CLMOOC | Scoop.it

Play-deprivation? It is very real. Without it? Well...watch, listen, question, respond here.


Terry Elliott's insight:

Here is a classic example of the impossibility of predicting/managing complexity:

 

1. I joined in a Google Hangout On Air last night (https://t.co/swsLVirIDW) for #clmooc.  

2. I met Carol Hartmann (@StaffSandboxOER) at the Hangout because she, excellent librarian that she is, was interested in annotation tools.

3. I shared the Peter Gray vid on Vialogues above with her.

4. She jumped on it first thing and mentioned her curation via Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/staffsandbox/).  

5. I felt I had to reciprocate as best I could for such a full Pinterest buffet with my on again/off again Scoop.it site on clmooc (http://www.scoop.it/t/clmooc)

6. That prodded me into kick starting my curating activities.

Just a little later I had a Google Hangout with Joe Dillon about Week Three Make Cycle ideas and

7.I was able to use what I had saved to Scoop.it (and hence automagically to my blog, my tumblr, Twitter, and facebook) in our conversation.

8. This led to this and here we are.

 

It might seem like a very ordered and billiard-ball-like experience where one cause leads to another effect and thence to another cause etcetcetc.  But it isn't inevitable like that at all.  Complexity says we can describe what happened, but we couldn't have predicted it at the beginning of the cascade.  In fact if iI join another Google Hangout and meet up with Carol again, there is every chance that we would emerge from a different rabbit hole.  

 

I like that very much.  Affordances, adjacent possibles, however you will describe it, I am very grateful.

The Big Here

The Big Here | CLMOOC | Scoop.it
When I teach literature, I am always impressed by how cut and dried the 'idea' of setting was compared to how complex setting plays out in the good ol' day-to-day.  That's why I was so glad to see ...

You can engage in leveling up your own awareness of the space around you by "playing"  'The Big Here' game.

I am not able to do anything more than hazily sketch in my head how useful this could be in the internet of thingamajigs. Seriously, I am getting this channel and pushing toward understanding this better because it gives me that hair rising on the nape that tells me something wicked worthy is knocking at the door.

Let Me Introduce Myself: From Pasture to Post, Tacit Knowing All the Way Down

Let Me Introduce Myself: From Pasture to Post, Tacit Knowing All the Way Down | CLMOOC | Scoop.it
I have been thinking about learning spaces.  Digital ones like #CLMOOC and analog ones like my pasture.  There is tacit knowledge in both, but for me the pasture is much more akin to what London ca...
Terry Elliott's insight:

So I introduce myself. I am the product of time and practice in several worlds.  I feel alive in both just more alive in my pasture than in my post.  Yet I use digital to share my tacit knowing and that always feels good.  I invite you to share your thoughts on this after you look and listen to the thinglink above. That, too, always feels good. - See more at: http://impedagogy.com/wp/blog/2015/06/24/let-me-introduce-myself-from-pasture-to-post-tacit-knowing-all-the-way-down/#sthash.XYesFQZD.dpuf

Terry Elliott's insight:

Thinglink is a very handy tool that is like that handbag Hermione had in Harry Potter.  Bottomless-ish.  Because it is so easily embeddable and shareable it makes it handy.  The premium also has video embedding which I also messing about with.  You might like it, too, for use in #Clmooc.

Evidence that connected learning is complex, networked learning.  Unpredictable, adjacent, and opening unexpected learning.  It is one of the predictable truths of connected learning that you will make unpredicted and positive connections.  Are you ready for that?  Yes, I thought you might be.

Terry Elliott's insight:

Let us now praise famous remediations.  Or try.  The whole remediation shebang might just be another way to be derivative.  Part of me wants to say, "Don't just derive, create and thrive."  Is remediation as a product just derivative, but as process it is creation alive?  I am tending to think this way.

For teachers of English learners, Common Core means double the work - The Hechinger Report | CLMOOC | Scoop.it
PORT CHESTER, N.Y. — On a recent chilly spring morning at John F. Kennedy Magnet School, fourth-grade bilingual teacher Kristin Pascuzzi distributed a series of “mystery” photos to her excited students and asked them to discover what they had in common. They gabbed and scratched their heads, studying the images that included a doorknob, a …
Terry Elliott's insight:

“I don’t think there was much thought given to English language learners when these standards were created,” said Sánchez, who spearheaded the math translation project.


No, this is classic hierarchical problem creating.  And it is the best way to insure that good teachers find other outlets for their powerful skills.  The Common Core put into motions a set of  conditions that are so complex that no one knows how they will shake out.  How unethical is that!  Very.
