George is flying to Australia so I'm on my own this week. And I'm in Saint John at the Innovation Forum. Consequently, there will be no 7 pm Elluminate session. We will have one session: Elluminate discussion: 11 am CST: See time zone conversions7 pm CST: See time zone conversions. Elluminate discussions (both sessions can be accessed via this link): 11 am CST: See time zone conversions.
The next several weeks of the course require participants to complete several papers, a concept map, and a final project. If you're grappling with concept maps, there are numerous examples online. Several participants have already started to post theirs for CCK08. The challenge with concept maps is not about adding all the elements in the course, but being selective in which elements are included and why. Pruning is as important as growing a concept map. , , October 29, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
Do As I Say - Not As I Was Taught - CCK08
Comments on Stephen's decision to subscribe participants to the forum this week have ranged from positive (i.e. great impact in exemplifying control) to critical. Tom Whyte falls into the latter: "In the short time that everyone still in the course was forced to participate, I like many others became upset at being manhandled into something that was not our choice, that was not our network, to have had our own limited power taken away from us. We started wide eyed, and fancy free, then bam.. pillow sack over the head and taken to a dark room to sweat it out..." He then goes on to make some statements about connectivism at a K-12 level and practical applications of connectivism that I (George) will reply to in the next several days.
