July 27th, 2011 written by Melissa Venable
"How will Google+ work in higher education?

Educators at all levels are weighing in on Google+, its features, and potential for use in both traditional and online classrooms. Take a look at what some of these learning professionals, early voices from the field, are writing about this new social networking tool.

Patrick Powers, Media Manager at Webster University ... Google+ allows for the creation of targeted audiences through the circles feature, "meaning there can be circles for alumni, donors, current students and prospective students, and each can receive targeted messaging." ...

Why social networking is not the death of our education system, but the beginning of it

Why social networking is not the death of our education system, but the beginning of it | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

LAUREN FISHER  AUGUST 23, 2011

"A recent study has pointed to the decline in education and literacy ..., as a result of increased use of social networking, email and text messaging. ... and they found that children were reading less books, as they favoured ‘technology-based’ reading materials, including email and searching on Facebook, Twitter etc.. The fact that children are reading less books and turning to digital is not really a surprise, but does it need to be a bad thing? Or is it instead a reflection of a shift in society as older forms of reading and writing make way for new, better technologies?"

Massive open online course - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Massive open online course - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

"In the field of open education, one of the latest trends is that of open [1] courses, called MOOCs (Massively Open Online Courses). Such courses are founded on the theory of connectivism and an open pedagogy based on networked learning. Typically, participation in a MOOC is free; however, some MOOCs may charge a fee in the form of tuition if the participant seeks some form of accreditation.[2] Although the courses generally do not have specific requirements all MOOCs provide rough timelines in the form of weekly topics to focus discussion. ... Posting in discussions, reflecting on topical ideas, and sharing resources using a variety of social media are at the core of the MOOC learning process.[3]
A Massive open online course (MOOC) is a course where the participants are distributed and course materials also are dispersed across the web. This is possible only if the course is open, and works significantly better if the course is large. The course is not a gathering, but rather a way of connecting distributed instructors and learners across a common topic or field of discourse.[4] MOOCs are a more recent form of online course development, departing from formats that rely on posted resources, Learning Management Systems, and structures that mix the LMS with more open web resources.[5]"
.. with a lot of  links, also  to the "first"MOOC by George Siemens and Stephen Downes 2008 about Connectivism. Missing is the first german MOOC #opco11 :-(

Using Facebook for Language Learning

Using Facebook for Language Learning | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

"The idea of creating a structure within Facebook to foster language learning stemmed from the huge popularity and ease of use of this platform ... where using video media is often fraught with compatibility issues.
The idea had to bi-pass the usual Facebook accounts of students, and an environment created that was limited to expression in the target language."

Open Course on P2PU: Getting Started With Self Learning » DIY U

Open Course on P2PU: Getting Started With Self Learning » DIY U | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

August 18, 2011 by @sleslie

Starting August 30 there’s going to be an open course running on P2PU.org called “DIY U: Getting Started With Self Learning.
It’s based on the Edupunks’ Guide. I’ll be moderating with Alison Jean Cole of P2PU. The goal: create and share a personal learning plan and find others who can help you on your learning journey.
I am tremendously impressed with what P2PU has been doing over the past two years and so pleased that they saw the guide as a resource to expand their offerings to people who need help getting started on their platform. It’s exactly the kind of collaboration and hands-on application that I hoped the guide would juice.
We’re running an initial pilot for 10 weeks for a small group of people, an experiment to figure out what works and what doesn’t. We’d really like to get a mix of people including those who have little to no experience with technology, self-learning and online learning, but who have unfinished learning goals that they’d like to achieve. If this is you or someone you know, get in touch and email me at diyubook.com!

New MOOC about "change" (in educations through Social Media) running 36 weeks from September 12 2011 - May 15 2012

"Being connected changes learning. When those connections are global, the experience of knowledge development is dramatically altered as well. Over the past four years, a growing number of educators have started experimenting with the teaching and learning process in order to answer critical questions: "How does learning change when formal boundaries are reduced? What is the future of learning? What role with educators play in this future? What types of institutions does society need to respond to hyper-growth of knowledge and rapid dissemination of information? How do the roles of learners and educators change when knowledge is ubiquitous?"
Experimenting with answers to these questions has produced what is now called "massive open online courses" or MOOCs."

By Cathy N. Davidson August 26, 2011

I want to suggest a different way of seeing, one that's based on multitasking our attention—not by seeing it all alone but by distributing various parts of the task among others dedicated to the same end. For most of us, this is a new pattern of attention. Multitasking is the ideal mode of the 21st century, not just because of information overload but also because our digital age was structured without anything like a central node broadcasting one stream of information that we pay attention to at a given moment.

Google+ May Open Social Networking for Some K-12 Schools -- THE Journal

Google+ May Open Social Networking for Some K-12 Schools -- THE Journal | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

By John K. Waters08/24/11

"Thanks to granular privacy controls and a unique interface for controlled sharing, schools that have previously banned social networks are looking at Google+ as a viable alternative.

K-12 districts have had to tread softly in the social media universe, largely because of the need to safeguard the personal information of their students. In a world where privacy is frequently considered an antiquated concept, students are vulnerable, and that open-to-everyone networking model has led some districts to block student access to the likes of Facebook, Flickr, and Twitter.
But thanks to features that give users control over how their information is shared, Google's new social networking service, Google+, may inspire even the most privacy-conscious districts to open their virtual doors. The key to Google+'s early popularity may be a feature called circles ..."

How the Science of Attention is Changing Work and Education

How the Science of Attention is Changing Work and Education | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

Fascinating review by Maria Popova, from Brainpickings on Cathy Davidson's, (Founder of Duke University’s Center for Cognitive Neuroscience) new book "Now You See It".

 

Intro:

 

How the Brain Science of Attention Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Learn — a fascinating meditation on how “attention blindness,” the peculiar phenomenon illustrated by Harvard’s famous invisible gorilla experiment, has produced one of our culture’s greatest disconnects, the inability to reconcile the remarkable changes induced by the digital age with the conventions of yesteryear’s schools and workplaces.

 

 

"As long as we focus on the object we know, we will miss the new one we need to see. The process of unlearning in order to relearn demands a new concept of knowledge not as thing but as a process, not as a noun but as a verb.” ~ Cathy Davidson

"... #edtech20 ...teachers worldwide are invited to join and collaborate free in this project http://tiny.cc/docedtech20 because 2011 is the beginning of New Age of Curation. Curation has always been an under-rated form of creation and is the act of continually identifying, organizing, and sharing the best and most relevant content on a specific topic or issue online. Using these new curation tools, you can build a powerful PLN (Passionate Learning Network) and it can bring a new dimension in XXI Century Education.

Curators promote interaction, collaboration, as well as education around the topics that are important to them and they use also many web 2.0 and social media tools and applications"

Stephen Downes, eBook, August 17, 2011.

New eBook by Stephen Downes, 239 Pages
"There is a story to be told about open source, open content, and open learning from the point of view of the person desiring access to these things, rather than from the point of view of the provider. And it has been my steadfast (if I may say so myself) setting of the priority on access that draws out and clarifies this alternative perspective on free content, free software and free learning."
"Issues surrounding copyright and free access are among the most divisive and most important of the digital age, bringing into the open questions about the nature of knowledge, of content, of society, identity and democracy. "

Networks, Ecologies, and Curatorial Teaching « Connectivism | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

"A curatorial teacher acknowledges the autonomy of learners, yet understands the frustration of exploring unknown territories without a map. A curator is an expert learner. Instead of dispensing knowledge, he creates spaces in which knowledge can be created, explored, and connected. ... A curator balances the freedom of individual learners with the thoughtful interpretation of the subject being explored. While learners are free to explore, they encounter displays, concepts, and artifacts representative of the discipline. Their freedom to explore is unbounded. But when they engage with subject matter, the key concepts of a discipline are transparently reflected through the curatorial actions of the teacher."
