Online Residency

Simon amazingly had never used Elluminate before, and thought he was attending as a f2f delegate, but was co-opted at the last minute to look after the online group. In the morning when the f2f participants broke out into working groups, Lawrie Phipps -  made sure we were included by coming and speaking to us, which was great.

F2F and online teaching

Jenny Connected

Mike Bogle’s reflection on his presentation skills – [link] – strikes a chord with me. always unpick my ‘performance’ in detail after a presentation or a course, either online or offline – but I tend not to do it in public as Mike has done. spent many years teaching face-to-face and have done loads of presentations in the past.

Emergent learning: the designer’s role, the learner’s experience

Jenny Connected

In addition, online learners seem to need and take/create more space than f2f learners, i.e. contemplative learning space. What does the need for ‘space’ mean for the design of blended learning, integrated online and f2f learning, and a prescribed curriculum? These discussions are ongoing and we share our current thinking on this wiki.

Networked learning, CoPs and connectivism

Jenny Connected

At a distance >>>>>> Predominantly F2F. The first Networked Learning Conference Hotseat with Peter Goodyear has attracted a lot of interesting discussion.

Is a Virtual Choir a Learning Network or even a Choir?

Jenny Connected

The outcome gives the appearance of a choir performance, but the process doesn’t have some of the critical elements of the experience of singing in a F2F choir, which seem to me to be about listening to each other in real time and making on the spot adjustments in the light of that listening. link]. link]. link].

The Riddle of Online Resonance (first installment)

In writing this paper we have not attempted to solve this riddle, but rather to explore its unique characteristics, with a view to increasing our understanding of online communication and how this might differ from face-to-face (F2F) communication. 2. resonance and F2F communication.

In defense of lurking

Jenny Connected

Actually, I dislike that derogatory term ‘lurking’ and prefer to recognise that in any course, online or f2f, we will have active participants, but also those whose learning preference is to ‘read’ or ‘observe’. It’s not what it does for me, but rather what I am now able to do with and for others. Lurking=taking. link]. Lurking=taking.

Jenny Connected

I have just attended the Friday Elluminate session of the Plenk2010 course (will post recording as soon as it is available). have been out of touch for more than a week trying to meet research and work deadlines and so it was great to be able to attend this session and also that the session focussed on a topic which is of great interest to me.

Too much choice

Jenny Connected

I am still reflecting on my experience at the Networked Learning Conference and it has been heartening to receive supportive comments here on this blog, in emails and  f2f. The conference in Birmingham yesterday was wonderful. Inspiring in many ways. curriculum, grades etc) to being about meaningfulness.

Is blog conversation distinctive?

Jenny Connected

Mike has commented that discussion is spread across blog comments, tweets, emails, f2f and wiki articles and that ‘All of these combine t make a really vibrant, indepth discussion, but on their own the comments on blogs may not appear to progress things very far’ I have been wondering about this. Is this true?

noticed f2f it is easier to fill in some details which seem kind of trivial, yet the lack thereof online may lead to plenty assumptions.
