Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 26, 1:27 PM

One of the timeless principles is making connections. That explains connectivism as an extension of constructivism rather than a stand alone theory. We need to connect to people, to the subjects, and the world as if they were living. That is what motivates us and fuels the learning.

David Bramley's curator insight, December 3, 2013 5:42 PM

Informal learning can form an essential role in blended learning, but only if learners understand what informal learning is and how to participate...learning how to learn!  This post provides a great example of how facilitated nformal learning using technology (Twitter) can add a new dimension to the learning experience...people from outside the classrom participating s well as those within it!

 

Next time you are running a face to face session, why not ask learners to turn mobiles to silent, rather than turn them off?

Maria João Loureiro's curator insight, February 1, 3:37 PM

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) . Parece-me ficar a faltar outras tantas, como a resolução de problemas, a colaboração, o aprender a aprender...

Phil and I remember being younger managers in large multinationals (IBM for me) back in the 90's, and in my case, the 80's.
Minter Dial's insight:

So, next time someone asks for your input on management training for you and your managers…. ask them to help you learn from your experience, or learn from your peers… and refuse any option that includes sitting in a classroom, or working with an e-learning system.

Minter Dial's comment, July 28, 2013 2:28 AM
Hi @Kelly, @David and @Ilana. It's a major battle. What techniques have you used? I've tried a few things with some success, but it depends on the student profiles...: (a) have a Twitter wall where the interaction can be public ; (b) have no-device moments (c) warn that anything on their screen can be shared in public (if I find it).
