How I use connectivism in my learning and training
, CCK12, Apr 12, 2012
Connectivism is an integration of chaos, network, complexity and self-organization theories. Connective learning environment is COMPLEX and TECHNOLOGY DRIVEN, such as the Internet, social web and mobile media, virtual and augmented reality. It is messy, overwhelming, unsettled and unstructured, as well as diverse, open, autonomic and connected. To tackle this chaotic learning environment it is important to know the difference between ... Wed, 11 Apr 2012 15:01:00 -0700 [Comment]

Power and Networks
, CCK12, Apr 03, 2012
We can distinguish among four different types of power based on how it operates in the networks. Networking power operates based on including or excluding others outside the network acts as gate-keeping. This practice might be counter-productive and preventing creativity. For instance, I was asked to attend team meetings of another team to contribute to a mobile initiative since I had some experience with the topic. Then I was asked not to attend anymore meeting but can contribute ... Tue, 03 Apr 2012 13:15:00 -0700 [Comment]

Managing in an Age of Complexity by Jean Boulton
, CCK12, Mar 12, 2012
To be able to plan and manage systems properly, businesses need to understand the characteristics of the systems they are handling. Mechanical system: Certainty is the driving force for businesses. The future is predictable by measuring the past. "We have become the prisoner of measurement." (Mintzberg) It can be viewed as a machine and people act like cogs in a machine. The system does not interact with the outside world. Its parts are identical in the same class and cannot change. ... Sun, 11 Mar 2012 18:17:00 -0700 [Comment]

Groups vs. Networks
Ilona Lantos, CCK12, Feb 27, 2012
Stephen compares groups to networks. Groups can be characterized as unity (melting pot), while networks bring about diversity (salad bowl). It reminds me of chemical compounds as they relate to mixtures. The ingredients of a mixture can be separated while the compounds act like the melting pot, once the ingredients bound into one, it will become a new entity with new characteristics. In group setting learning is coordinated (LMS) while in networks learning takes place ... Mon, 27 Feb 2012 14:24:00 -0800 [Comment]

The End of Echo Chamber?
Ilona Lantos, CCK12, Feb 11, 2012
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 ... Fri, 10 Feb 2012 18:53:00 -0800 [Comment]

My network is my learning
Ilona Lantos, CCK12, Jan 31, 2012
“What we know today is not as important as our ability to continue to stay current.” ~G. Siemens   Extracted from: http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/connectivism.htm   The amount of knowledge in the world has doubled in the past 10 years according to the American Society of Training and Documentation (ASTD). At the same time, the half-life of knowledge, the time between learning something new and when it becomes obsolete gets shorter and ... Tue, 31 Jan 2012 19:47:00 -0800 [Comment]
