Connectivism: Week 4 Intro Video
George Siemens, Blip.tv, February 13, 2012.

Hi - some of you may still be a bit lost, confused, and even irritated by the course structure. Here's a short video for those in that profile. [Comment]

E-Learning: Générations
Stephen Downes, Stephen's Web, February 13, 2012.

Text in English and in French of the talk I gave today at Clair 2012 in New Brunswick. It provides a comprehensive background to the development of MOOCs and the connectivist approach to teaching online. I gave the presentation in French (and if you've wondered whether I've seemed preoccupied recently, that's why - now that I'm done this, it's full speed ahead on the Connectivism course). Anyhow, enjoy.

Week 3: A conversation with Enrica Piccardo
Matt Bury, Change MOOC #CCK12 » Matt Bury
I was lucky to have attended an open lecture at Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto on Friday given by Enrica Piccardo, which was mostly centred around her current work with Encouraging the Culture of Evaluation among Professionals (ECEP) and her previous work with the Common European Framework of [...] [Link] Mon, 13 Feb 2012 01:41:13 +0000 [Comment]

#Change11 #CCK12 Creatagogy – Creativity and Creative Learning
suifaijohnmak, Learner Weblog

Week 3: Connected Knowledge cck12
Meanie, meanie
Connected knowledge is combining personal knowledge from,let's say a network of participants(as in a MOOC), to gain greater knowledge as a sum.  The sum can be referred to the connected learning experience.  In many cases large complex tasks are too difficult for just a single person; manufacturing, organisations etc..  So, a network of reliable entities work towards a common goal, each performing a part of the finished product.  Connecting the ....

Week 3: The Trap: What Happened to Our Dream of Freedom
Matt Bury, Change MOOC #CCK12 » Matt Bury
The Trap: What Happened to Our Dream of Freedom is a BBC documentary series by English filmmaker Adam Curtis. The series consists of three one-hour programmes which explore the concept and definition of freedom, specifically, “how a simplistic model of human beings as self-seeking, almost robotic, creatures led to today’s idea of freedom.” 1.

Week 3: What I’ve learned so far

We’re coming to the end of week 3 on CCK12. What have I learned so far? The simple answer is it’s too difficult to describe in a blog post but I’ll have to try to sum it up here. Connectivism… puts emphasis on using web 2.0 technologies to learn how to learn. encourages learners to [...] [Link] Sun, 12 Feb 2012 08:41:40 +0000 [Comment]

#Change11 #CCK12 The use of social media (FB/Twitter) in social networking & networked learning
suifaijohnmak, Learner Weblog
Research indicates that male and females are different generally in the use of  social media and social networking.

The End of Echo Chamber?
Ilona Lantos, CCK12
Echo chamber theory claimes that we tend to read, listen and watch news that confirm what we already believe or know. We tend to hang out with like-minded friends. The personalization of the web and echoing our friends' beliefs about the world indicate a highly polarized world view. In January, 2012 a new study about Facebook came out, concludes the opposite. The reseach was led by Eytan Bakshy, who is interested in the relationship between social networks and how information .... [Link] Fri, 10 Feb 2012 18:53:00 -0800 [Comment]

Week 2: Networked Learning cck12
Meanie, meanie
I, like most, find it very difficult to participate to my full potential in a program such as this.  There is so much material to read and understand.  I am a little behind but bear with me.  I am going to attempt to describe networks and how it pertains to learning.A network is a collection of entities all sharing information amongst each other.  These entities connect to, share and rearrange data to develop learning patterns.  The brains' ....

What is knowledge?
Joseph Shatsky, myprobetothink
Analyzing why I disagreed with my opponents during conversations, I realized that ,seldom, it was different interests; more often it was different meanings of words. Imagine dialog between two people. One speaks and understand only English and another  German. What kind of decision would they make? For good communication  we need the same words and [...] [Link] Sat, 11 Feb 2012 01:17:46 +0000 [Comment]
