It also helps us to develop ourselves. Cheryl and Sukaina had their feet firmly on the ground as to what can realistically be achieved in the creation and sharing of OERs and the development of open educational practices at the present time.

Failing to Create a Content Addressed Resource for the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC

Jenny Connected

Due: Nov 23, 2018. I have understood the gist of what this is all about, and I can see the importance of developing a distributed web with distributed open educational resources, but I think I will follow Montaigne’s advice when meeting these types of difficulties and ‘give them over’.

E-Learning 3.0 : some initial thoughts

Jenny Connected

The first phase of the internet as it was originally developed in 1994, based on the client-server model, and focused on pages and files. This is the topic of a 10-week MOOC being offered by Stephen Downes, which started this week. For the course outline see – [link].

Community network mapping: just get going!

Making CommunitySense

Communities refer to developing a shared identity around a theme and collectively learn and develop knowledge about it (see Team BE for a great explanation). Mapping a community network is an art as much as a science.

What I learned about facilitating by doing stand-up comedy

Viv Mcwaters

Knowing when to quit, and knowing when to keep going, is one of those intangible skills that facilitators develop over time. Earlier this year I co-hosted an experimental event called Radical Acts.

Conversation With Tony Hirst Oct 31, 2018 video We covered server virtualization with an in-depth look at using Docker to launch full web applications in just a few moments, and then looked at embedded programs in Jupyter notebooks, tying it all together with a discussion of how these might be used in the future.

E-Learning 3.0 : Graph

Jenny Connected

It helps learners understand that each idea connects to another, and it’s not the individual idea that’s important, but rather how the entire graph grows and develops. Graph is the Topic for Week 3 of Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0 Again, he has provided a good Synopsis – see [link].

A Conversation about Community in the Distributed web

This worked really well, allowing the conversation between them to develop and dig deeper into some interesting ideas. This image created by Kevin Hodgson , a participant in the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC , as Stephen Downes said on Twitter, ‘ basically completes the Task for week 8 ’.

Facebook Eavesdropping Patent and Congress Questions

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

Before you waffle on about anonymized data the non- de-hashing of profiles is a gentleman’s handshake between developers. But it sets the stage for further development.

Digital badges and the purpose of education

Jenny Connected

In fact, unless the purpose of education remains really clearly thought through and all these developments are clearly underpinned by clarity of purpose, then I think it would be easy to slip into practices which might be detrimental to learning.

Four Things to Remember When "Planning"

Evolving Web

I have planned subway systems, technology rollouts, urban growth patterns, transportation infrastructure, housing needs, freeway travel patterns, business projects, software development, building houses, building buildings, and on and on. In 1989 I received my degree in Urban Planning.

Digital Badges as Recognition of Success

Jenny Connected

I wondered whether the badge system would promote the ‘completion of tasks’ approach to learning, more than a focus on developing a depth of understanding. Looking back through this blog, I am reminded that in 2012 I attended a SCoPE seminar on digital badges and wrote two posts about it.

Badges are not sufficient

You can stimulate curiosity for self directed learning

Joitske Hulsebosch

At the same time, there is a group of lecturers who seem to invest less in their own professional development. It raises (again) the question whether every professional has an intrinsic motivation to develop and learn.

Identity from the perspective of authentication

Jenny Connected

Hopefully there will be more courses like this one which will help us to keep abreast of developments and where we are headed. In this video Stephen Downes, convener of the E-Learning 3.0

Thinking of knowledge as a graph

Jenny Connected

If I were to continue to develop the map, I would do more of this. To develop my knowledge of the Cloud, to learn and understand more about it, I need to grow my connections and the links between them. This is a response to the E-Learning 3.0

Some Thoughts on Identity

Jenny Connected

As we encounter our effects on the world and develop our relations with others, these layers build upon each other to produce our identity as a very complex interweaving of participative experience and reificative projections. The topic for Week 4 of Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0

March was my month of exploring virtual reality for learning and development.

Joitske Hulsebosch

What I read a lot about is that VR storytelling helps to develop empathy for, by example, the refugees. More is needed than a VR app to develop empathy. I see that there is a lot of development in VR applications.

My takeaways from OEB18: communities, AI and 3D-smarts and some very practical stuff

Joitske Hulsebosch

You may use it to design your own game and get inspiration through the toolbox, or you can use it to have groups of learners to develop a game and play eachother's game. For the first time in my life I went to the OEB learning technologies conference in Berlin. It was a great conference.

My experiences of the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC to date

Jenny Connected

I tend to develop technical skills as and when I need them, but of course I realise that not having good technical skills means that there’s a lot I am not aware of. that in this course we are working at the ‘leading edge’ of developments in E-Learning. 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.

How to Create Live Maps of Conference Connections

Partnering Resources

Rosviz18 Reflection part 1

Michelle Laurie

We talked about different kinds of agendas, about the development and suitability of different ones for different circumstances. It was interesting to see the visual themes that developed around words like ‘technology’ and terms like ‘on-boarding’.
