We'll kick things off on Monday with an elluminate session (more info)...and the balance of the week will be held in the Networked Learning 2010 conference fourm.

Week 6: Power and Authority

Networked technologies have changed power and authority. This week, we'll explore to what degree and in what ways power and authority have been altered in learning.

My position on connectivism
Paper on connectivism posted over the weekend. "Educators encounter how technology is changing our knowledge and the way we learn. This also results in the way we (should) teach.

What more than 10,000 Main Streets learn us about the crisis of representation…
Politicians like to refer to Main Street. But what actually is Main Street? Is it one people, one place, as political discourse often seems to suggest? Actually, in the US, there are more than 10,000 streets called Main Street… This video is about a documentary using Vimeo and Flickr, and archiving & presenting those streets [...] October 26, 2009

Half-time round-up of CCK09: a course mediating between the macro and the micro levels of history
CCK09 It’s time for a first round-up of what’s going on for me in the Connectivism and Connective Knowledge Course. So here we go for a number of thoughts, some directly inspired by the course discussions and materials, others indirectly related. I’ll update this during the coming weeks – we’re only half-way! First I’d like to [...] October 26, 2009

Twitter

(These should be fresh. Still working on improving the Twitter display.) #cck09 if connective knowledge is a more enriching way of learning and engaging why do students still request to be passive receivers?

@leilanachawati In 04 I worked with iEARN with 9 years old kids. I had forgotten about that, was excellent! It was connectivism! #cck09


@luzpearson #CCK09 WHAT YOU LIKE OF CONNECTIVISM? It helps us understanding macro issues while enhancing personal learning capabilities

MOOC provides you unique experience to authentically sensemake & wayfind via network(s) (immersive experience challenging u to learn)#CCK09.

Have u put on "L", "P" or "E" plates in #CCK09? u would enjoy more if the E plates are hang on the wall as more L there #CCK09


Under the principles of theory, would "transfer of learning" still applicable to connectivism? I would argue that is not applicable #CCK09


#cck09 Not "Instruction 2.0" or "Teaching 2.0" the very point of eLearning 2.0 is that it's learner driven. http://digs.by/b94


To learn, we have to be active by accessing, remaking, remixing, repurposing, and rewriting learning resources #cck09 http://wp.me/pnP2E-9M
