Mathemagenic

September is a busy month: as school holidays are over there is a time to celebrate the beginning of new learning year with Not Back To School Parties and to sort out the routines of regular sports, clubs and other activities. This year we did more than usual since the kids are older and I wanted to talk more with the parents who have more experience of homeschooling beyond primary school age. So, here is a list of things that kept us busy. <photo

Truth in a Post-Truth Age

Bacon advocated writing in aphorisms to give us brief glimpses of possible truths which would demand active engagement, probing and testing what is read. All our activities should be centred in Truth.

What I learned about facilitating by doing stand-up comedy

Viv Mcwaters

Facilitators can become attached to our processes and may be loathe to let go of that great activity, even though it will no longer serve the needs of the group. As with facilitating, the spaces in between are as important as the content and the activities.

The Quantified, Qualified and Connected Self

Jenny Connected

And that goes for activity on social media too. Lee Humphreys, from the reviews I have read, believes that online sharing of the minutiae of our daily lives, ‘selfies’ and so on, is not narcissistic, but simply a continuation of an age old tradition of diary writing and similar activities.

Community network mapping: just get going!

Making CommunitySense

These include activities, workflows, business processes, initiatives, projects or whatever else you call the dynamics that make your community tick. Mapping a community network is an art as much as a science.

E-Learning 3.0 : Graph

Jenny Connected

See for example the dynamic graph he has created of Twitter activity on this course – [link] That’s the limit of what I know about them, because, to be honest, graphs do not ‘light my fire’! I had to decide whether an invited speaker counts as a course participant for this activity.

Creativity and experience on the distributed web

We now have the possibility of creative activities becoming distributed and democratized. is that these creative activities become distributed and democratized. The topic for the penultimate week in the E-Learning 3.0

Facebook Eavesdropping Patent and Congress Questions

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

Is that technology now active? Why does Facebook have patents to listen (eavesdrop) through the microphone for ambient sound if they are only using it for uploading your video? My live feed of the Congress hearings cut out right near the end, but did anyone ask these questions?

Digital badges and the purpose of education

Jenny Connected

But with xAPI activity data we can begin tracking things like which resources a person read, who they spoke to, and what questions they asked – anything. We have now come to the end of the sixth topic – Recognition – in Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0

Reflections on PGviz18

Michelle Laurie

They also provided meals to the families, free hair cuts to the children along with bouncy castles, chalk and other fun kids activities. The place was bustling with activity intended to bring families together and support their educational goals. I am inspired.

How to Livestream a Canon EOS M50 eg YouTube or Facebook Live

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

2018 version. On my Mac, Camera Live says ACTIVE above the camera name. If it does not say Active, make sure you have NOTHING else that can grab camera feeds open. I have an EOS M50 camera and I wanted to use it for livestreaming on both Facebook Live and YouTube Live.

Badges are not sufficient

Jenny Connected

But with activity data we can begin tracking things like which resources a person reads, who they spoke to, and what questions they asked. This week Stephen invited Viplav Baxi to join him in a discussion about this week’s topic – Recognition – for the E-Learning 3.0

You can stimulate curiosity for self directed learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

Jenny Connected

The IndieWeb allows you to organise your online activity in a space that you control. The guest for this third week of Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0 MOOC was Ben Werdmuller. I took a screenshot from the Hangout, because he has such a winning smile. Just what you need for a difficult topic!

(video) tool of the month: 1 second video apps for blended learning

My experiences of the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC to date

Jenny Connected

If there is activity elsewhere I am not aware of it. First a bit of background. The task for this week in the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC is related to the topic of Community in the distributed web. This is the task as created by Stephen Downes: As a community, create an assignment the completion of which denotes being a member of the community. For the purposes of this task, there can only be one community. For each participant, your being a member of the community completes the task.

How to Create Live Maps of Conference Connections

Partnering Resources

She prepared, so she had a paper form for new people to give her their names & email addresses as they entered, so that she could load the new names into sumApp during the activities. Have you ever been frustrated trying to find the person you needed at a busy conference?

What is Working? A Question of Discovery

Michael Sampson - Currents

One of the questions to ask when evaluating a current work activity or process (at whatever level you engage with that – e.g., business model, system) is what is working?

Re-Imagining Effective Work – the SAMR Model

Michael Sampson - Currents

Or imagine redefining a lecture as a collaborative co-learning and co-teaching activity that brings together students from different schools around the world to share learnings, experiences, and resources.

Envisioning a New Approach

Michael Sampson - Currents

Envisioning a new approach has two inputs: your understanding of the current reality of the work process or activity, and your newly developed understanding of what’s possible. Drawing a mind map of a work activity to show the elements, relationships, and associations.

You can use Twitter to get new ideas to do your work in a better way

Joitske Hulsebosch

Community and organization intertwine

Learning Alliances

Pedophiles in the Catholic church were bound to each other by codes of silence and enabled by an organization that provided a setting and cover for their activities. When their activities were exposed and the organization’s complicity in the cover-up was also exposed, the cost to the organization was enormous.

Why No Lessons Learned Microsoft?

Michael Sampson - Currents

In the first instance, as a consequence of what happened last week, customers across the world would be more happy to know that Microsoft itself can “successfully deploy Azure Active Directory” in a way that local outages don’t cause global meltdowns.

Collaboration in the Process of Re-Imagining

Michael Sampson - Currents

Thus when looking at how to re-imagine a work process or activity – or a relationship, business model, life, or even a room layout for that matter – we can see what we’ve been trained to see, but are blind to what we can’t.

(Microlearning) tool of the month: Guidiance

Joitske Hulsebosch

Microlearning can be linked to a training programme as a follow-up activity. You can also create events and view the activity in your group via statistics. Microlearning is a trend in online learning, so the tool of the month is a microlearning tool: Guidiance.

The skillset of a blended trainer or facilitator: technology is overrated

Joitske Hulsebosch

Spacing is new, online activities. Think from the participant perspective which combination of online and face-to-face learning activities will be powerful. Choosing the right online learning activities.

On Interpretation and Artistry

Michael Sampson - Currents

Be intentional about location and activity. Meeting rooms have their place, and a well-designed and well-appointed meeting room is a great addition to the re-imagining activities of all teams. There is a lot of thinking and repeatable process in re-imagining effective work.

Wanted: A Presentist

Michael Sampson - Currents

Those who can look at what is currently available for re-imagining effective work and bring those immediately available benefits to a work process or activity. With futurists the world is awash. Who proclaim the new and to the past say tosh. The future of work is so very posh.

Towards the idea that complexity IS a theory of change
