Evolution of the Multidimensional Learning Space Vision

Evolution of the Multidimensional Learning Space Vision | HASTAC | Scoop.it

...When we stopped thinking in terms of physical and digital, what began to emerge were discussions that focused purely on learning, teaching, and space deisgn. Our roadmaps for individualized professional development emerged. http://www.ryanbretag.com/blog/?p=2263

Our discussions evolved to learning focused including the move away from “knowledge commons” to “learning commons”. http://www.ryanbretag.com/blog/?p=845

A subtle but important shift. It elevated the importance of space design regardless of physical or digital. The result being the IDEA. http://www.ryanbretag.com/blog/?p=2024

We also started to focus on formal and informal learning, blended learning, and edges. This allowed for a three tiered PD program to emerge.

 

This has and continues to serve us well but there remains a critical piece missing. The digital piece to the learning commons. For me, it is a critical gap and we’ve not been able to fill it with a social networking tool of any value. Yes, we’ve discussed Facebook but the discussions with students, teachers, parents and administrators always left us with no solid answer.

So, this is where I’ve seen it needing to go…

6 mechanisms that will help create the global brain | Trends in the Living Networks

6 mechanisms that will help create the global brain | Trends in the Living Networks | HASTAC | Scoop.it

Ross Dawson is a smart guy. The six mechanisms in the paper he discusses are: an idea ecology, a web of dependencies, an intellectual supply chain, a collaborative deliberation, a radically fluid virtual organization, a multi-user game. -- Howard

 

"One of the many reasons humanity is at an inflection point is that the age-old dream of the “global brain” is finally becoming a reality.

I explored the idea in my book Living Networks, and at more length in my piece Autopoiesis and how hyper-connectivity is literally bringing the networks to life.

Today, my work on crowdsourcing is largely focused on the emerging mechanisms that allow us to create better results from mass participation.

Some of the best work being done in the space is at the MIT Center for Collective Intelligence. A few of their researchers (including founder Thomas Malone) have just written a short paper Programming the Global Brain.

I don’t think “programming” is the best metaphor. I prefer to think about the enabling structures and mechanisms out of which collective intelligence will be created.

However programming can be a useful frame, and in the paper the authors propose six programming metaphors that will facilitate the formation of the global brain:"

Flipping The Classroom… A Goldmine of Research and Resources To Keep You On Your Feet

Flipping The Classroom… A Goldmine of Research and Resources To Keep You On Your Feet | HASTAC | Scoop.it
Many educators are beginning to become aware of the growing teaching method referred to as “Flipping The Classroom”. Simply put… the teacher provides videos for homework, while traditional home work is done in class under teacher supervision. Unfortunately this might be just too simplistic of a definition. Possible this is why using the words “simply put” may not be the best practice in explaining anything.

Sure it's an extensive page - the research section could be better with reference to papers dated back to 1998 and 2001. The section "Resources To Better Understand Flipping the Classroom" is good including info graphics and a good link to J. Gersteins http://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2011/06/13/the-flipped-classroom-model-a-full-picture/
