Identity graphs as a ‘source of truth’

Jenny Connected

Week 4 on Identity in Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0 I was pleased to hear him say this, as throughout the week I consistently felt that our digital identity is nowhere near the whole picture of who we are. Stephen has said that identity in E-learning 1.0

Mother tongue and identity

Mathemagenic

Still, for many of us, our mother tongue is bound up with our deeper identity, our memories and sense of self. But switching into Dutch completely when in public is out of question at this point: that part of my identity, which is about being a mother, is in Russian, our relation is in Russian and my part of facilitating their learning is also in Russian.

My experiences of the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC to date

Jenny Connected

All the other topics have been great, and I particularly enjoyed the week on Identity , and the fact that I was able to enter into some deeper and broader discussions with a few participants about ideas such as ‘betweenness’ , that are of particular interest to me at the moment. 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 is learning organized in a self-managed organization?

Joitske Hulsebosch

However, I think 'wholeness' is an important aspect of knowmadic working: being able to be yourself, bringing your own identity and not playing a completely different role at work than at home or at the sports club. Your dog is also part of your identity :). Every month I read a management book. I am very curious about learning in self-managing organizations. How is this organized? Is self-management also self-directed learning?
