Minority voices and the ‘Problem’

Jenny Connected

This is particularly disheartening when it happens in learning communities and even more disheartening when there appears to be a lack of awareness or concern for those who have been ‘silenced’. This is a significant problem for open online learning.

A new mapping tool: useful for research purposes

The Changing Role of the Learning Facilitator

Jenny Connected

There is an intense discussion going on in the CPsquare community at the moment about the work of learning facilitators. Quite a few members of the CPsquare community work independently as community facilitators or for an organisation. Others like myself, are members of CPsquare not so much because we work as community facilitators, but because we are interested in social learning theory and how people learn in communities of practice.

Towards a Literacy of Cooperation

Jenny Connected

I have recently realized that I need a balance between the open networked MOOC experience and smaller more closed learning environments which are designed for close encounters, challenge and deep learning. Linked to this recognition of needing a balance between large loose learning environments and more intimate communities, is a consideration of the balance between cooperation, collaboration and competition.

Thoughts about community as curriculum in #rhizo14

Ontology, epistemology and pedagogy of networked learning

Jenny Connected

This was the subject of one of the threads in the 4 th Networked Learning Hot Seat last week. I had difficulties relating to some of the ways in which networked learning was being discussed. In the first Hot seat it was defined by Peter Goodyear as: learning and teaching carried out largely via the Internet/Web which emphasises dialogical learning, collaborative and cooperative learning, group work, interaction with on-line materials, and knowledge production.

Collaboration online

Jenny Connected

These are usually designed into Stage 4 of the model after it has been established that everyone has successfully accessed the learning environment (Stage 1), participants are socialising easily and the learning community norms have become apparent (Stage 2) and information is being freely exchanged and a culture of open sharing exists (Stage 3). Up to Stage 3 activities centre around helping participants to feel stimulated by and comfortable in the learning environment.

Tales from a reticent Elluminate presenter

Jenny Connected

They say that the best way to learn is to teach – or if not teach then facilitate – or if not facilitate then engage, interact, participate and act. I never have liked having dirty hands However, since this has now happened twice I thought I would reflect on what I have learned about the physical management of an online synchronous session. So here is my list of things that work best for me and what I have learned. Tagged: ELESIG , Elluminate , emergent learning.

In defense of lurking

Jenny Connected

Even when we are newcomers in a network or community, we should be creating and sharing our growing understanding. What George has written seems to me to be a complete contradiction of what I perceive open learning networks or courses to be all about. Stephen Downes has outlined the principles of learning in networks as being openness, connectivity, diversity and autonomy. PLN (personal learning network) is by its very name just that – personal.

The Reality of the Networked Learning Conference

Jenny Connected

This week I have presented for the very first time (with Roy Williams) a paper at a conference ( the Networked Learning Conference ). This has been a steep learning curve for me which I reflect on here. My ideals were that the research we were working on was worthwhile, was honest and open, and raised questions which would be of interest to the networked learning community.

Teaching with technology: changing roles

Jenny Connected

We were no longer learning facts, we were learning how to learn. As an online teacher I have far more contact with each of my students than I ever did face-to-face and it was a complete revelation to me, when I participated in my first online course as a student, how much I could learn from my fellow participants rather than from the teacher.

Engaging learners with technology

Jenny Connected

My primary concern, as a teacher, is to engage learners with learning. So how do I engage my students with learning? Writing this has reminded me that when I used to teach school children, I would allow at least one week and sometimes two at the beginning of a new term for this process of familiarisation with my expectations – introducing the classroom norms, my expectations of how we would interact, negotiating classroom rules and learning about their expecations.

Sustaining Communities

Jenny Connected

The subject of the research paper that I have recently submitted (with a colleague) is the challenges facing ‘artificially’ created communities. By this we mean communities that are set up as part of a funded project. Does this management team have any responsibilities to the wider, larger community that it might unexpectedly have created and if so what are these responsibilities? How does the community perceive its responsibilities?

Teachers talk too much

Jenny Connected

’ George expects everyone to be transparent in their learning and by default become a teacher in the course. If they are just establishing and managing a learning community or network, then I think participants would view their responsibilities differently. In a community or network, peripheral participation is legitimate ( Wenger ) as George acknowledged. The CCK08 round up was an interesting meeting.

Follow-up from the Leadership Learning Community Webinar

Nancy White

Last Monday I was a guest of the Leadership Learning Community for an short online gathering. Communities, Networks and Engagement: Finding a Place for Action. But what happens when we say “we’re building an online community” but few engage? My experience is that in communities where people care about what they are working with (the “domain”) they also care about quality and help weed out the “iffy” stuff.

Here’s Where the E-Learning Community Provides Practical Value

Delicious/choconancy/online_facilitation

We also discussed ways that being part of the community can help make you an elearning superstar. I get a lot of emails about how to get started with elearning or how to learn more. One of my first suggestions is to jump into the community forums and start asking for help.
