Further thoughts about our presentation: 10th Networked Learning Conference 2016

Jenny Connected

This week Jutta Pauschenwein and I presented a paper Visualising Structure and Agency in a MOOC using the Footprints of Emergence Framework at the 10th Networked Learning Conference in Lancaster, UK. For our work ‘structure’ means how a learning design balances openness and structure and how this balance is implemented in relation to the interactivity it enables. Like him, we believe that a holistic view is needed to understand the learning experience in MOOCs.

22 nd August 2016 pm – a 4 day course with Iain McGilchrist. Final reflections. In this state it seems even more important to listen, observe and reflect. Ideas of complexity, uncertainty, multiplicity and learning to live with paradoxes, struck a strong chord with me.

What can you learn from a chatbot?

Joitske Hulsebosch

Why are chatbots interesting for learning professionals? Should I find an interest in chatbots as learning professional? The development of chat bots for learning purposes is still in its infancy stage. Just the fact that I learned about chatbots made me see chatbots everywhere!

Three learning and teaching trends in 2016 and the essence of homeshooling

Mathemagenic

Three Trends that Will Influence Learning and Teaching in 2016 : 1) Alternative credentialing, 2) Experimentation in new teaching models and learning spaces, and 3) Student-driven personalized learning. Of course, what we do is quite different from the learning industry, but the themes are there. At the same time documentation is an instrument for reflection, recognising patterns and planning, all creating the ground for making choices where to go further.

Facilitating informal learning: mindset, lifestyle and paying attention

Mathemagenic

A lot of learning in our lives is informal, embedded, implicit. Easter lunch is not about learning, but it comes to it when a discussion gets to a question about the biggest egg. The mindset is about paying attention to a learning opportunity: where is energy and interest?

Designing for a family learning: meaningful activities for adults

Mathemagenic

Mixed age group learning is something that comes as a part of homeschooling practice. I think it is worth exploring in other settings as well, for example when looking at learning in a family or a community. In an ideal case learning in a same age class in school is also mixed-age, because teachers should be learning something in a process as well :). If you are a parent you probably know that kids learn the most from what you do and not what you tell them.
