Questions about rhizomatic learning

Jenny Connected

Cath’s posts in which she is presenting models for rhizomatic learning make sense. She has presented two models. I actually equate this to Cath Ellis’ tube map model, but I don’t think this is what she intended. Model one: maps . Model two: nomads.

Rhizo 14: Emerging Ambiguities and Issues

Jenny Connected

The use of the rhizome as a metaphor for designing teaching and learning has a positive impact on the role of the teacher. Is a course, which necessarily means there is a course convener, the right environment for exploring and modelling rhizomatic learning?

Bringing a festival mindset to conferences

Viv Mcwaters

Why do gamification / improvisation / creativity conferences and events, mostly, not use the principles they espouse for others in their own event design? It seemed to me that a talk, as good as it might be, followed by Q and A, is a push model.

The games we play

Viv Mcwaters

This type of game is known as a system dynamic modeling game that helps us to understand complexity. We were going around in circles seemingly getting nowhere (I actually suspect this is an important part of game design) until we decided to ditch the farmers and focus on squirrels! It’s no secret that I’m a fan of games, play and movement. Recently I attended a MASHLM Humanitarian Summer School in Lugana, Switzerland.

Beyond Institutions – Personal Learning in a Networked World

Jenny Connected

In this presentation I look at the needs and demands of people seeking learning with the models and designs offered by traditional institutions, and in the spirit of reclaiming learning describe a new network-based system of education with the learner managing his or her education. A particularly challenging point that Stephen made was ‘Do away with models’ – learning models and design models. The right model is no model.

Fedwiki – further thoughts

I do not have an edtech, nor an instructional design background. Gilly Salmon’s 5 stage model comes to mind. In my last post , I wrote about what I like about Fedwiki, despite my technical difficulties. I can now access my site and am slowly finding my way around, but still have lots to learn and understand. My focus is on this at the moment, rather than on completing the tasks set by Mike Caulfield.
