Ed/ITLib Digital Library → Implications of connectivist pedagogy for online learning environments | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

In the recent years, e-learning gained wide acceptance in learning communities mostly because of its capability of reaching audiences by collapsing time and space, encouraging interaction and promoting learning. However, for learning to be effective, we now know that learning must use sound instructional design principles (Ally, 2008). This paper centers on connectivism, a new theory of learning, and discusses how connectivist principles are used in online learning environments.

Roles and student identities in online large course forums: Implications for practice

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 12, 5:37 AM

Abstract



The use of large online discussion forums within online and distance learning continues to grow. Recent innovations in online learning such as the MOOC (massive open online course) and concomitant growth in the use of online media for the delivery of courses in traditional campus based universities provide both opportunity and challenge for online tutors and learners alike. The recognition of the role that online tutors and student identity plays in the field of retention and progression of distance learners is also well documented in the field of distance learning. Focusing on a course forum linked to a single Level 2 undergraduate module and open to over 1,000 students, this ideographic case study, set in a large distance learning university, uses qualitative methodology to examine the extent to which participation in a large forum can be considered within community of practice (COP) frameworks and contributes to feelings of efficacy, student identity, and motivation. The paper draws on current theory pertaining to online communities and examines this in relation to the extent to which the forum adds to feelings of academic and social integration. The study concludes that although the large forum environment facilitates a certain degree of academic integration and identity there is evidence that it also presents a number of barriers producing negative effects on student motivation and online identity.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 3, 7:22 PM

As teachers we reflect on our practice. Do we ask students to reflect on their practice? Do we share with them why reflection is important in the learning practice?

This post looks at why reflection should be a part of learning. Learn about four criteria that Dewey considered in his writings on reflection. See two visualizations that explore reflection. The first (shown above) looks at various platforms that might be used to help students reflect (lots of opportunities to use technology here) and the second one expands the KWL chart to a KWHLAQ...which stands for:

* Know - What do I know?

* Want - What do I want to know?

* How - How will I find out?

* Learn - What have I learned?

* Action - What action will I take?

* Questions - What questions do I have.

This second chart provides ideas for the Where and How that are analog and digital.

This post is very comprehensive and has many examples of students reflections that range from Kindegarten through Grade 10. There is much to learn and explore so be prepared to take some time. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 3, 9:41 PM

Mindsets: Why Do Some People Learn Faster?

Mindsets: Why Do Some People Learn Faster? | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
Do we ignore mistakes, brushing them aside for the sake of our self-confidence? Or do we investigate the errors, seeking to learn from the snafus? The latter approach, suggests a series of studies, could make you learn faster.

 

Jonah Lehrer writes:

 

One of the essential lessons of learning, which is that people learn how to get it right by getting it wrong again and again."

 

"Education isn’t magic. Education is the wisdom wrung from failure."

 

"A new study, forthcoming in Psychological Science, and led by Jason Moser at Michigan State University, expands on this important concept. The question at the heart of the paper is simple: Why are some people so much more effective at learning from their mistakes? After all, everybody screws up. The important part is what happens next. Do we ignore the mistake, brushing it aside for the sake of our self-confidence? Or do we investigate the error, seeking to learn from the snafu?"

 

Growth Mindset 

 

"It turned out that those subjects with a growth mindset were significantly better at learning from their mistakes. Because the subjects were thinking about what they got wrong, they learned how to get it right."

 

"Fear of failure (fixed mindset) can actually inhibit learning."

 

Praise: How Matters

 

Students praised for their intelligence almost always chose to bolster their self-esteem by comparing themselves with students who had performed worse on the test.

 

In contrast, kids praised for their hard work were more interested in the higher-scoring exams. They wanted to understand their mistakes, to learn from their errors, to figure out how to do better.

 

The experience of failure had been so discouraging for the “smart” kids that they actually regressed.

 

The problem with praising kids for their innate intelligence — the “smart” compliment — is that it misrepresents the psychological reality of education. It encourages kids to avoid the most useful kind of learning activities, which is when we learn from our mistakes.

 

Foresaking Self-Improvement for the Sake of Self-Confidence

 

Unless we experience the unpleasant symptoms of being wrong the mind will never revise its models.

 

We’ll keep on making the same mistakes, forsaking self-improvement for the sake of self-confidence. Samuel Beckett had the right attitude: “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.”

Creating this two-way flow of dialogue, practice, expertise, and interest, can be the foundation of a wirearchy.

In complex environments, weak hierarchies and strong networks are the best organizing principle.

 

....many companies today have strong networks...coupled with strong central control. Becoming a wirearchy requires new organizational structures that incorporate communities, networks, and cooperative behaviours. It means giving up control. The job of those in leaderships roles is to help the network make better decisions.
