OLDSMOOC Design

The next stage is for people to team up and work on design projects together, which might be difficult for those who have entered the MOOC as individuals rather than as a team, or alongside colleagues. Does this MOOC need the amount of prescription that is a significant part of its design?

Designing for a family learning: meaningful activities for adults

Mathemagenic

Mixed age group learning is something that comes as a part of homeschooling practice. I think it is worth exploring in other settings as well, for example when looking at learning in a family or a community. In an ideal case learning in a same age class in school is also mixed-age, because teachers should be learning something in a process as well :). If you are a parent you probably know that kids learn the most from what you do and not what you tell them.

Re-Thinking Follow Models Within The Enterprise

Collaborative Thinking

Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner. Social network sites ( defined by boyd and Ellison for consumer sites in 2007 and extended by myself (while at Burton Group) to apply to enterprise sites in 2008 ), were instrumental in making follow models more prominent.

Modeling spaces for self-directed learning at university courses

Taming the spaces

Today i sent away my paper: Modeling spaces for self-directed learning at university courses to the special call of Journal of Educational Technology & Society. The main idea is to bring out the ecological learning design framework elements and show how they were applicable at the course design. In the article I pointed to the need for the new learning design frameworks for self-directed learning with social software that were ecological.

Poor Mental Models fail teams before they even start?

One of the most powerful team exercises is to explore team leaders and team members "mental models" of teams, networks and groups. Mental models are the, often invisible, dictators of what actually happens in a team as opposed to what team leaders would like to happen.

Beyond Institutions – Personal Learning in a Networked World

Jenny Connected

In this presentation I look at the needs and demands of people seeking learning with the models and designs offered by traditional institutions, and in the spirit of reclaiming learning describe a new network-based system of education with the learner managing his or her education. There is a distinction between personal learning and personalized learning. Learning is built not from a kit but from scratch. Learning is no longer about remembering.

This is the session on The Complexity Curve: How to Design for Simplicity led by David Hogue VP of Experience Design Fluid Inc I was lucky to go early as there was a line outside by the time it stated. Although people have more experience and are more sophisticated, it still takes time to learn new interfaces, information, and interactions. Although we are able to learn and use these often difficult interfaces, we increasingly seek and appreciate simplicity.

Doubts about Slow learning

I thought I would enjoy this Week 13 in ChangeMooc - presented by Clark Quinn on ‘slow learning’, but instead I find myself a bit at odds with some of the ideas that have been discussed. I think the main problem is the terminology, i.e. ‘slow learning’. I’m afraid I do not think the term ‘slow learning’ works as well. Clark Quinn has described slow learning as follows: So I’m hereby initiating the Slow Learning movement.
