The Digital Stranger: Education, participation, social networking and creativity
Digital strangers are people we interact with, people we are inspired by, people we understand (even a little) about their views and their position in a specific network, but know very little about. We can still learn from and with them. We can create and share. We can innovate and solve problems. We can increase awareness and affect change. We can engage, entertain and provide comfort or inspiration.

Stages of Personalized Learning Environments | Bray & McClaskey | The Digital Stranger: Education, participation, social networking and creativity | Scoop.it
Personalizing learning for all learners means understanding the different stages of personalized learning environments (PLE). Stage One is teacher-centered with learner voice and choice. Stage Two is when teachers co-design learning with the learners. Stage Three is when learners design and drive their own learning.

The Value of Our Digital Identity

The Value of Our Digital Identity | The Digital Stranger: Education, participation, social networking and creativity | Scoop.it

Increasingly, we are living double lives. There is our physical, everyday existence. And there is our digital identity, the sum of all the digitally available information about us. As this information grows in volume and variety, the picture of us that it creates is becoming surprisingly complete. And valuable.

 

For organizations, the opportunities digital identity presents are enormous. Applications that leverage personal data can boost efficiency, help focus research and marketing efforts, and spur the creation of personalized products and services that, in turn, spur revenues. For consumers, the benefits are compelling, too: faster service, lower prices, and products better suited to their needs, to name a few.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, December 20, 2012 9:23 AM

The Boston Consulting Group did a survey among 3000 customers. The main conclusions are that, although the economical benefits can be enormous, they will not be realised if people do not want to part with their data. And increasingly people do not want to unless sufficient privacy controls are in place and the benefits are clear to them. This, I am sure, also applies to organisations that provide learning opportunities, such as universities. They too need to act responsibly, in transparant ways and, most importantly, give the user control over his or her data. Universities and commercial elearning providers talk more and more about learning analytics, wanting to know all they can about learners online behaviour, but I hear nothing about privacy other than offhand remarks.

Connectivism in Practice — How to Organize a MOOC | peeragogy.org

Connectivism in Practice — How to Organize a MOOC | peeragogy.org | The Digital Stranger: Education, participation, social networking and creativity | Scoop.it

"Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are online learning events that can take place synchronously and asynchronously for months. Participants assemble to hear, see, and participate in backchannel communication during live lectures. They read the same texts at the same time, according to a calendar. Learning takes place through self-organized networks of participants, and is almost completely decentralized: individuals and groups create blogs or wikis around their own interpretations of the texts and lectures, and comment on each other’s work; each individual and group publicises their RSS feed, which are automatically aggregated by a special (freely available) tool, gRSShopper. Every day, an email goes out to all participants, aggregating activity streams from all the blogs and wikis that engage that week’s material. MOOCs are a practical application of a learning theory known as “connectivism” that situates learning in the networks of connections made between individuals and between texts."

 

Comment: This is an excellent description of how a cMOOC works, you know, the connectivist kind that tends to be forgotten in all the brouha about about xMOOCs. But the resource doesn't stop here, it also gives rather good guidelines for those who want to dip their feet into setting up a cMOOC themselves (peter sloep, @pbsloep)
