He posits that while today’s students are technically competent, they are consumers of technology rather than creators. It’s as if they can only read and not write.

I wanted students to be able to funnel their interests into a more authentic academic experience so that they could learn about what they want to learn about and become empowered as researchers, both casually and formally.

[Excerpt]: "As I was writing on yellow pads, I started thinking of the other writing I’ve always done on yellow pads, and one of those has been correspondence with a long-time mentor of mine, Taylor Stoehr, someone who has written against mediated experience for much of his life. So whenever I wrote him, no email would do. I would always put pen to paper."

New York Times edits best of Instagram for storm · Storify

"The New York Times customized Storify to edit photos from Instagram and bring together the most compelling images from this weekend's east coast storm.

 

Unlike many stories that are about collecting what's already out there on social networks, the Times involved their audience in the story. Rather than publishing a one-time post collecting a few photos and calling it a day, they created a living, dynamic page that gave readers a reason to keep returning to see the latest photos culled from social networks.

 

The page was built by the Times using the Storify API, which lets developers pull the media data from a Storify story to come up with alternate displays than the usual Storify embed."

Ten people at a time can be in a Hangout, but the event was streamed so that anyone could listen to the stream while it was being broadcast or later via the recording.  The stream bounced in and out of Google+ Hangout, Second LIfe, WiZiQ, and  Elluminate, where EVO moderators met up to speak about their sessions if they didn't join us in the Google Hangout.

Tim Hopper's curator insight, January 4, 2013 2:05 PM

Like this quote.  "Learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn." It is complex because it is emergent and defies being reduced to simple components, but we must keep trying to understand it.  "The journey is the destinaton" as an Eastern philospher once said.

Alan Ovens's comment, January 17, 2013 2:21 AM
Great diagram. We just need to always keep in mind that theories of learning are not theories of teaching. Always "mind the gap" as a voice once said to me as I sat on a train in London.

Teens aren’t abandoning “social” - they’re just using the word correctly

Teens aren’t abandoning “social” - they’re just using the word correctly | mediated learning & digital media for professionals | Scoop.it

[Excerpt] "Kids aren’t leaving social networks. They’re redefining the word “social.” Rather, they’re actually using the word with the intent of its original meaning: making contact with other human beings. Communicating. Back-and-forth, fairly immediate dialogue. Most of it digitally. But most of it with the intent of a conversation where two (or more) people are exchanging information and emotion. Not posting it. Exchanging it. That's social."

sarspri's insight:

Interesting data from Piper Jaffray; it would be interesting to compare it the Pew Internet and American Life data. 

 

Pinpoints various human activities and behaviors and how the 'human element' is what drives technology adoption and use.

The Knowledge Sharing Paradox – Ownership or Thought Leadership?

The Knowledge Sharing Paradox – Ownership or Thought Leadership? | mediated learning & digital media for professionals | Scoop.it

[Excerpt] "Our goal as enterprise learning experts is to find the most effective way to change audience behavior to align with a certain business objective. Extremely relevant to this practice is the ever-changing ways in which people communicate and learn from each other. If we want a learner to accept or adopt a certain change in behavior, it would make sense that we need to structure a corporate learning experience as closely as possible to those experiences sought out by that learner on their own time.

 

Therefore, because the large majority of learning has been revealed to occur through on-the-job and social experiences, not through formal training channels, we must enable and foster these more informal experiences to occur within the workplace."

sarspri's insight:

Though this was written for an audience of corporate trainers (or "enterprise learning experts"), the importance of informal learning opportunities and networks is just as important and applicable within higher education and other learning contexts. 

 

These concepts are essential for the development of networked language teaching professionals.
