Dyslexia and Connectivism
New learning needs require new skills. In our session today, someone asked the type of skills required by an ideal learner in today's networked environments. In order for our learners to participate, we need to ensure these skills are integrated into the educational process. Different learners will obviously have different needs. End goal, however, is to provide learners with the greatest skill set to be participants in changing economies and societies. "The role of education is to connect all in an inclusive way to formal and personal social learning. Connectivism would lend itself to this. This means the learner is not just a product of education but also a consumer of education. a wider and more ethical stance is needed to prepare the learner to take a full role in civic society, to be included on their own terms and accepted for their contributions."

Connectivism: Revolutionary Educational Movement or Nutso Cult?
Heh. This has to be my favorite blog title in a while. Basically, some poor individual at CBC spent a morning figuring what connectivism is all about. And concluded he doesn't understand. Well, we do have a 12 week course devoted to the subject :). Jesse Brown, , September 24, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Stephen managed to live blog Valdis Krebs presentation this morning. Key points made during the session are captured if you don't have the 65 minutes required to view the recording (though I highly recommend it). ...and .pdf versions of his slides Stephen Downes, CCK08, September 24, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
Recording: Session 2
This recording links to the second session this afternoon on CCK08. We started with a conversation about general network concepts and moved to a fairly wide ranging discussion of different network attributes. We concluded with a focus on network principles for learning. Connectivism Group, , September 24, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
CCK08 Concept Maps
Rodd has created a concept map detailing major course topics so far...and a nice image of the tools, concepts, resources, etc. that we have used so far in the course. Still a bit confused about the different tools being used? Have a look at the second image on this page for how Rodd sees the different tools, activities and theories. I value open learning for this reason: someone shares their ideas...we connect it to what we know...or our creativity is stimulated...and we create something new (image, blog post, podcast) for others to begin the same process.
