Flipping learning

Oh, and I’m also taking part in a Stanford University MOOC (massive open on-line course) on new learning environments.

Tips for learning that sticks

Viv Mcwaters

I believe this is true in learning too. It’s the difference between learning that sticks, and learning that ticks the boxes. I’m interested in learning that sticks, what I like to call visceral learninglearning that happens not only in your head, but in your body too.

A Social Theory of Learning, Schools and Landscapes of Practice

Jenny Connected

The title of the introductory chapter in Etienne Wenger’s 1998 book is ‘A social theory of learning’ – not ‘A social learning theory’. There was an interesting discussion at the Academic Betreat about the relationship between theory, practice and learning. Whilst theory, practice and learning are closely entwined, I came away from the BEtreat reminded that I have always used theory to ‘inform’ my existing practice, rather than use theory to ‘form’ my practice.

Digital Storytelling in the US Army

Jenny Connected

The key point that came out of Jonathan’s CPsquare presentation and the discussion, was that although storytelling is a powerful tool for binding a community, it needs to be managed carefully in terms of the technology, in terms of the stories and commitment to gathering those stories, and in terms of learning from the stories. Leaders were almost universally keen to be interviewed and understand that sharing their stories and learning adds value to the whole community.
