Constructivism and Connectivism
George Siemens (gsiemens) , September 28, 2010.
During our last week's Friday session, we spent some time addressing constructivism and connectivism. I've captured 15 minutes of the conversation here). This discussion thread picks up on Friday's conversation...it's good preparation for next week's topic! [Link] [Comment]

The Next Web Will be a Jump, Not Slide
George Siemens (gsiemens) , September 28, 2010.
Alan Levine comments on the direction of the web: "Do not get me wrong, these are all the techno topics that excite me-- yet I struggle to see them as being anything but a continuation, a gradient of the web we have been. For something to follow in the sequence of Web 1.0 -- Web 2.0 -- XXXXX I am looking for something that is an evolutionary leap, a significant change from what was before, and I am not seeing it."

Drop by the discussion - do you see something transformative happening with the web - the blurring of physical and online worlds? Or are the current trends, as Alan argues, a continuation of what is already pronounced. [Link] [Comment]

Netiquette
, Week Three General Discussion
by Susan Grigor.  My son, who has been all over the 'Net for about 15 years has met a lot of teens. He has seen many groups die because of flaming and mis-communication. He suggested this article on good manners:@font-face { font-family: "Times New Roman"; }p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal { margin: 0in 0in 0.0001pt; font-size: 12pt; font-family: "Times New Roman"; }a:link, span.MsoHyperlink { color: blue; text-decoration: underline; }a:visited, span.....

An aside in defense of constructivism
, Week Three General Discussion
by Catherine Lombardozzi.  I found the recorded web chat and blog posts related to constructivism vs connectivism very interesting...  George suggests that perhaps someone must die in this fight rather than letting the two theories coexist and draw from one another.  Our facilitatores would be appalled that I have described connectivism as a constructivist theory, I am quite sure, so I will stop doing that. I am very interested in hearing more about this debate - I'd love to hear .... [Link] 2010-09-28T15:09:46

¿Un PLE que no es personal?
, Week Three General Discussion
by Claudia Guerrero.  No sé donde me perdí, pero leyendo el artículo de Rita Kop me parece que hay un cambio en el discurso, de la autonomía y de lo personal a algo que se propone como ya hecho para allanar el camino del aprendizSi bien uno aprende haciendo asociaciones también uno aprende viendo a alguien hacer algo, y/o haciéndolo por uno mismo, la elección y la voluntad nos permiten establecer compromisos para actuar. Me quedo con lo que dice sobre "ayudar al alumno a dar .... [Link] 2010-09-28T12:58:01

Formativ assessment in PLE today and in "next generation of internet"
, Week Three General Discussion
by Niklas Karlsson.  In a post I wrote about the validation of knowledge is a key issue "The most interesting question of PLE/PLN is maybe not about learning!" (http://learning-research.blogspot.com/2010/09/most-interesting-question-of-plepln-is.html it is not only the summative assessment which is interesting in PLE / PLN, but also how the formative assessment takes place. Very often, I see short positive feedback or "thumbs up", but it is not the form of assessment which I think is .... [Link] 2010-09-28T10:43:28

Web 3.0 video review, and some PLENK thinking
admin, Dave's Educational Blog » PLENK2010
I just watched the quite excellent documentary by Kate Ray on Web 3.0. While I went into the video expecting a celebration of the awesomeness of a smarter web, what i found was a nicely balanced review of the upsides and downsides of the conversation and some quite dissenting viewpoints from the people she interviews.

#PLENK2010 WebX connected knowledge = Connective knowledge?
x28, x28's new Blog » PLENK2010
"Connects knowledge" sounds good (upper left quadrant of slide 12 of Wheeler's presentation). But does this equate to connective knowledge as in Connectivism? I think it is just "snap-in" knowledge that needs to be "augmented" by connective [Link] 2010-09-28T22:17:29
