Connectivism: 21st Century’s New Learning Theory

Connectivism: 21st Century’s New Learning Theory | #FOAMed - Free Open Access Medical Education Resources | Scoop.it

"Transformed into a large collaborative learning environment, the Internet is comprised of information reservoirs namely, (a) online classrooms, (b) social networks, and (c) virtual reality or simulated communities, to expeditiously create, reproduce, share, and deliver information into the hands of educators and students."


Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
NLafferty's insight:

I think FOAMed is an expression of connectivism.

23 Seldom-Used Ideas for Utilizing Twitter Lists

23 Seldom-Used Ideas for Utilizing Twitter Lists | #FOAMed - Free Open Access Medical Education Resources | Scoop.it
If you’ve read any lists on Twitter tips, whether for beginners or for experts, you’ve likely come across the common advice to use Twitter lists.

Twitter lists are useful, helpful, and effective for managing and optimizing your Twitter experience. There’s also a number of unique ways to go about them.

I researched the topic and found 23 popular and outside-the-box ideas for what to do with your Twitter list. See what I learned in the post below, and add your favorite uses in the comments.

NLafferty's insight:

It's worth having a look at Howard Rheingold's comment on this post where he mentions that he suggests to his students creating Twitter lists and then using Paper.li to create a briefing around the topic or network.  It's not something I've done but sounds like an effective way to curate #FOAMed resources insights to students and trainees.

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, October 27, 2:15 PM

When I teach infotention, I show learners how they can curate Twitter lists and use Paper.li to turn the lists into daily briefings by networks of experts on topics of their choosing. Curating, focusing, distilling, and formatting incoming streams of information about precisely the topics that interest you at any time is a key infotention skill. h/t Tracy Vu

Stephen Dale's curator insight, October 28, 10:59 AM

Twitter Lists are a great way of tracking people and conversations by theme or meme. Easy to set up, and easy to maintain. I've found them to be a very useful tool for the Curator's toolbox.

Alex Grech's curator insight, October 28, 12:51 PM

For most people who use Twitter for lifelong learning purposes, the 'Eureka' moment tends to be the day they understand how to put lists to good strategic use.

You don't get openness for nothing

You don't get openness for nothing | #FOAMed - Free Open Access Medical Education Resources | Scoop.it
Now, I think all articles should be open access anyway, but I think if you are doing any research in the field of open education (MOOCs, OA, OER, open data, etc), then as soon as you start doing that research you are morally obliged to publish results open access. I don't care which method (although if Green route, make it easy to find). You only get to do that research (even if you are critical of it) because others have been open. You are therefore beholden to reciprocate in a like manner. If you don't want to, or feel that the journal you are targeting isn't OA, then choose another subject area.
NLafferty's insight:

This isn't about #FOAMed as such but think Martin Weller's point is one for us to consider.  If we are going to be publishing research papers about  #FOAMed we should be making the effort to publish them in open access journals.
