Posted on September 11, 2011 by mrbrenlea

"It seems that every week there is a news article debating issues in education from the value of standardized testing amongst scandal, the value of technology on education, how to improve the quality of teaching, and trying to figure out which educational theory works best in an always connected world, Sir Ken Robinson provides an explanation as to why people are constantly critiquing the education system in his speech Changing Education Paradigms. ..."

Connectivism, Networked Learning and MOOC | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

Edgar posted on Facebook ‎”Learning may reside in non-human appliances”, how can you explain this?”

Hi Steve, I have been thinking of this principle since 2008, and still think that it could be up to one’s interpretation. How would you define “reside”, “non-human appliances”? And what sort of learning are we referring to? If we argue that it is the learning stored in our blog posts, then a click retrieves the information that we have stored in our blog. How would we interpret that retrieval? Is learning a product in this principle? Or is it a process? I have also posted this in Google + and would post it here again. ...
Here is Stephen’s presentation (147 slides!) on How to organise a MOOC? Still thinking about learning when relating to MOOC. ...

Does Twitter Make You a Better Writer? | Goins, Writer | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

JEFF GOINS on JULY 1, 2011

"Twitter makes your writing better? Really. Yep. In addition to forcing you to be concise, it can help you focus on other aspects of your writing.

It’s kind of blowing up. News anchors and celebrities and bloggers are leveraging it to build a tribe and reach the masses. ...
It is making me a better writer. Here’s what I’m learning from Twitter and applying to my writing, blogging, etc.

- Get to the point, already!
- Action-oriented writing gets the best response.
- You have to write about others more than yourself.
- Frequency is key to building a tribe, but don’t overdo it.
- Being responsive and available to your tribe is essential. ... "

elearnspace › Information foraging and social networks

elearnspace › Information foraging and social networks | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

If educators want to move away from broadcast models of teaching, the obvious questions arises “how are we supposed to teach and how will students learn?”. One particularly valuable benefit of traditional design and teaching models is the creation of a central platform or cohesive view of knowledge in a particular domain. We need some degree of centering in order to gain coherence in a topic. We (mistakenly) assume that if the educator provides that coherence in the form of a course, students will acquire it. But coherence is a personal thing – it’s about how *we* connect information elements and how we use artifacts and narratives to share that coherence.

Instead of a broadcast model, then, we need a model that places coherence making into the hands of learners and into social networks. The information foraging model is one approach to consider – as detailed in this presentation:

change.mooc.ca Massive Open ONline Course about  instructional technology by researchers today | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

Date: September 12, 2011 - May 2012

Facilitators: Dave Cormier, George Siemens and Stephen Downes

 

This course will introduce participants to the major contributions being made to the field of instructional technology by researchers today. Each week, a new professor or researcher will introduce his or her central contribution to the field.


Technologies Used: Through out this "course" participants will use a variety of technologies, for example, blogs, Second Life, RSS Readers, UStream, etc. Course resources will be provided using gRSShopper and online seminars delivered using Elluminate.

"Being connected changes learning. When those connections are global, the experience of knowledge development is dramatically altered as well. Over the past four years, a growing number of educators have started experimenting with the teaching and learning process in order to answer critical questions: "How does learning change when formal boundaries are reduced? What is the future of learning? What role with educators play in this future? What types of institutions does society need to respond to hyper-growth of knowledge and rapid dissemination of information? How do the roles of learners and educators change when knowledge is ubiquitous?"

Best social media mash-ups in higher education

Best social media mash-ups in higher education | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

The hardest part of any cohesive social media campaign is pulling it all together.

It’s why I’m so impressed when colleges or universities embrace the social stream and preset it on their own terms in a creative and meaningful way. I’m not talking about social media directories where a school lists all its accounts.

I’m talking about a high-quality mash-up where colleges and universities wrangle feeds from blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and more to create a compelling page that gives a real-time snapshot of all an institution has to offer. (Hat tip to the folks over at mStonerblog; they have been talking about mash-ups for months.)

There are plenty of higher education mash-ups out there, but here are a few of my favorites:

» Social Learning doesn’t mean what you think it does! Learning in the Social Workplace | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

12sep, 2011

The changes we are seeing in Workplace Learning are of course just one part of the changes we are seeing in businesses as whole. Simply replace the word “business” in the quote above with the word “learning” and it still makes sense. So, for instance the first paragraph would now read:
“Social Learning ” is not about technology, or about “corporate culture”. It is a socio-political historical shift that is bigger, broader and much more fascinating.”
In other words those who think “social learning” is just about a new training trend, or about adding social media into the ”blend”, or that it is about acquiring the latest Social Learning Management System are missing the big picture.

INSPIRATION. Videos are, in effect, changing education and learning. We are now past the point of debate. Flipped teaching and the ubiquity of high-performing teachers using YouTube are clear evidence of the shift. Check out this video, which shows the profound shift caused by the digital revolution. It’s gotten 14 million-plus hits — far more than any cat videos. There are many more of these, too.

Forget Storify: 4 Plugins for Curation Journalism with Wordpress | Web Protocols

Forget Storify: 4 Plugins for Curation Journalism with Wordpress | Web Protocols | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

September 8, 2011 by Claus Hesseling
Curation seems to be the new trend in online journalism. Not many users have the time to read millions of tweets or watch dozens of Youtube videos each day. Journalists can become curators of these art pieces of modern news media by picking out the most interesting user generated postings. A great tool for that is storify.com – I wrote about it some weeks ago.

Cloud computing is great – but I rather prefer to have as much control over my content as possible. So I decided to use my WordPress CMS and not Storify. It is easy – you just need to have some Plugins to make your blog more storify-ish.

Here is a list what you need:
1. Twitter: Blackbird Pie

2. Videos: Viper’s Video Quicktags

3. Creative-commons licensed photos: Photo Dropper

4. Maps: MapPress

This community acts as the curriculum, spontaneously shaping, constructing, and reconstructing itself and the subject of its learning in the same way that the rhizome responds to changing environmental conditions ...

@Ignatia Webs: Running race between open learning and formal higher education | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

IGNATIA/INGE DE WAARD, 30 AUGUST, 2011

"As the discussion on the future of higher education keeps on going, it is interesting to see how the presidents of colleges look upon these changes, particularly when looking at how top management looks at the pro's and con's of online learning.

The Pew Research Center just published a 29-page document on the digital revolution and higher education, where they look at the difference in valuating online learning between presidents of both for-profit, private and public colleges/universities and the public at l. The document is a result of a survey conducted in spring 2011. One is a telephone survey of a nationally representative sample of 2,142 adults ages 18 and older. The other is an online survey, done in association with the Chronicle of Higher Education, among the presidents of 1,055 two-year and four-year private, public, and for-profit colleges and universities. The report is quite interesting, as it clearly shows the difference of appreciation of online learning."

Performance.Learning.Productivity Blog: Why the Real Power of eLearning is Social | Curating-Social-Learning | Scoop.it

Charles Jennings, 30 August 2011
"eLearning has been with us in one form or another for at least the past 50 years, maybe longer. Probably the first player on the enterprise eLearning block was the University of Illinois’ PLATO learning management system, built in 1960 to deliver training through user terminals (which, even then, had touch-screens). ...
1. A move away from content-centric mind-sets.

2. A move away from ‘course’ mind-sets.

Step 1: Leaving Content-Centricity Behind ...

Step 2: De-Focusing from Courses ...
...
So de-focusing on courses and re-focusing on supporting learning in the workplace through social learning approaches and performance support will be critical in the future. There is no doubt about that.

In fact, there is a good basis of fact to argue that the real power of eLearning is social and contextual.
