Building a Community in Your Classroom | Rethinking Learning - Barbara Bray

Building a Community in Your Classroom | Rethinking Learning - Barbara Bray | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

These ideas fit my thoughts.  For example, if I was going to teach a course on customer relations.  I would have everyone share a story on the first real day of class about their worst experience at a restaurant or store.  It is open-ended and students don't feel as much pressure because everyone knows that nobody is expecting a polished speech.  Yet, teachers and students get to see some personality and a glimpse of what they value.

Ken

 

Communities are based on trust and respect. Here are some ideas of building a learning community right from the beginning of school. This is a culture shift for many.

 

A few tips for the first days of school including:

- meet and greet each student at the door with a smile and a handshake.
- invite everyone to contribute to the class rules — include some off the wall, funny rules.
- use an icebreaker or have them tell a story so everyone has a voice the first few days.

 

How would you build a community of learners where there is trust and respect?

The c MOOC as knowledge ecologies

The c MOOC as knowledge ecologies | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it

Ken's Key Takeaway:

I like the new term Personal Knowledge Network (PKN) 

 

Here are some quotes directly from the attached article:

 

Knowledge ecologies are thus self-controlled and self-contained entities.

 

Knowledge ecologies lacked a shared repertoire and are thus open and distributed knowledge domains.

 

The result of participation in a knowledge ecology is a restructuring of one’s PKN, a reframing of one’s theories-in-use and an extension of one’s external network with new tacit and explicit knowledge nodes; i.e. people and information (external level)

Knowledge ecology is a more general concept than intensional networks.

In essence, a knowledge ecology is a complex adaptive system that emerges from the bottom-up connection of PKNs.
