Information overload and connectivity

Jenny Connected

On one side we are urged to increase our connectivity – we are told that all learning starts with a connection, to learn we need to be well connected, to keep up in a fast moving digital age we need to know how to filter, select, aggregate, remix, repurpose, feed forward. We are urged to be open and connected , and to become involved in global networks. Tagged: connectivity , informationoverload , networked learning , time.

Notes from the Opening General Session at IBM Connect 2013

Michael Sampson - Currents

In Orlando at the Walt Disney World Dolphin, IBM is kicking off the Opening General Session for IBM Connect. Three big enablers - (a) technology - cameras, laptops, video online, social networking, (b) community - started small, and grew gradually / organically, and positive feedback for the people doing great work, and (c) remix - needing to overcome the premium of "my original work," and allowing people to build on the ideas of other people.

Some Thoughts on Identity

Constraints drive creativity?

Jenny Connected

Aggregation (collecting information and making connections). Remixing (organizing information and connections to suit yourself). Reading through the wealth of ideas that Jon Dron has presented us with this week, the idea that constraints drive creativity caught my attention.

Is structure counter to cMOOC philosophy?

Jenny Connected

it’s quite difficult to find the content and it seems that there are not going to be any synchronous sessions, where people could gather/connect if they so wished. I don’t see that the principles of connectivism – autonomy, diversity, openness and interaction across distributed platforms, or the key activities of cMOOCs – aggregate, remix, repurpose, feedforward, necessarily militate against structure or a curriculum.

What poets can tell us about ‘openness’ and ‘sharing’

Jenny Connected

The ModPo MOOC ( Modern and Contemporary American Poetry ) is surprising me in many ways, but mostly because in the poems we have studying in Weeks 1 and 2, there seem to be so many connections with my research into online teaching and learning. Resources would also be openly shared with the possibility of aggregation, remixing, repurposing and feeding forward. And here begins the connections I have seen with the poetry we have been reading in ModPo.

was the exuberance of believing that we could construct some universal, global commons in which everyone is connected and everybody has equal access to the same information. Now it's becoming clear that there is no such thing as 'universal information' - information needs to be interacted with, remixed, repurposed, reused, recreated and shared in order for it to be truly useful to groups in their own local contexts.
