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

Jenny Connected

Due: Nov 23, 2018. When I saw that at least three other participants had already quickly completed this task, and that Stephen had created videos showing us exactly how to do this, I thought what can be so difficult? Nov 22, 2018 video. Nov 22, 2018 video.

A video harvest…forever grateful!

Thank you Lisa and all the participants this year, and in years past, who have joined in the journey of visual expression. It’s a challenge to prepare, be the trainer on site and capture what is happening in the room for sharing.

Great meeting and art? Try Graphic Facilitation

Michelle Laurie

For me, it reinforces that taking time to allow participants to ‘hold the pen’, draw together and be creative is important. After reading this study, I think it not only reduces stress for the participants but also for the person leading the group.

Access to E-Learning 3.0 and the Distributed Web

stephen@downes.ca , Nov 25, 2018. But, as I noted in the post, some of the course participants (those with more technical skills than me) have completed the task and found it quite straightforward.

Community network mapping: just get going!

Which participant s are involved in starting, doing, and evaluating these interactions? Participants can be individual persons, roles people play, organizations, networks, or even other communities. Mapping a community network is an art as much as a science.

E-Learning 3.0 : Graph

Jenny Connected

I was interested in blog posts, the number of posts each participant (who has submitted their blog feed) has made and the number of comments they have received. I had to decide whether an invited speaker counts as a course participant for this activity.

The Quantified, Qualified and Connected Self

Jenny Connected

Participants’ Identity Graphs. This week the topic on the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC has been Identity. We have tried to answer questions such as: How do we know who someone is? How do we project ourselves on the internet? How can we be safe and secure?

A Conversation about Community in the Distributed web

Jenny Connected

This image created by Kevin Hodgson , a participant in the E-Learning 3.0 Stephen had asked participants to create a community through consensus, without giving us any indication of how to do this, or what else to do, and ideally without using a centralised space.

Creativity and experience on the distributed web

Jenny Connected

Just as multiple authors can edit Wikipedia articles or work on code in GitHub, participatory learning media enables learners to interact creatively without management or direction; the outcome is a consensus determined not by voting but by participation.

Digital badges and the purpose of education

See the end of this post for links to participants’ posts. References to Participants Blog Posts. We have now come to the end of the sixth topic – Recognition – in Stephen Downes’ E-Learning 3.0 For me, this has been the least satisfying of the course topics so far.

Reflections on PGviz18

Michelle Laurie

The participants came from Prince George and northern Alberta though many had originated from Ontario, the Arctic, other parts of BC and Europe. So rather than doing another evaluative task, one participant led the closing perfectly. I am inspired. Icon jam with the word feathers.

Badges are not sufficient

They only mentioned badges briefly, but the task for participants this week has been to create a badge – see my last post. This week Stephen invited Viplav Baxi to join him in a discussion about this week’s topic – Recognition – for the E-Learning 3.0

Curbing Crap From Your Mental Diet

Amusingly the only political post I participated in was the one I wrote saying I wasn’t going to participate in any more political posts because it became a discussion about political posts. It takes 72 hours to fix your feed. Your Facebook feed feeds your brain.

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

My experiences of the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC to date

Jenny Connected

For each participant, your being a member of the community completes the task. How many participants can the community actually encompass? 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.

Building “networks of communities” for a civic intelligence movement with impact

We live in an age of confusion, stagnation, and crisis. What we need is not more of the same top down, neo-liberal corporate and government interventions. These are just a recipes for ever more socio-economic and cultural alienation, disillusion and disempowerment.

Community and organization intertwine

Learning Alliances

Community and organization are different social entities that represent different ways of participating in our human world. On the other hand, communities can be informal and don’t even exist unless we participate in them, but they are personal and meaningful in ways that organizations rarely are.
