Each week, PLENK moves to a new weekly discussion forum. You can see them all here. Today, we are starting the Week 7 discussions.

Socratic questions about PLENK
, Week Seven General Discussion
by Chris Jobling.  I just participated in Maria Anderson's very inspiring discussion of her ideas on a new transformative personal learning idea Learn This based on the simple idea that "learning should simply be by way of Socratic questioning, where questions are rephrased as answers" [1]It lead me to wonder if the approach would actually work so I wonder if we could try it in this MOOC.For example this week's topic ends with the statement:"Two significant ....

#PLENK2010 (XI): Un PLE muy necesitado
evacisma@gmail.com (Eva Cisma), ELEopositando
      Ya estamos en la séptima semana de curso. Esta vez nos encontramos reflexionando sobre las herramientas del PLE, tanto las ya existentes como las que están en desarrollo. Aquí dejo la presentación y propuestas de lectura para estos días.       Ayer tuve la suerte de poder asistir a la sesión elluminate con Maria Andersen. Sin embargo,  aunque me había preparado para el evento leyendo el artículo recomendado por @gsiemens ví.... [Link] 2010-10-28T05:41:00

Para explorar... cómo le hacemos con los recursos no renovables y escasos
cgsguerrero@gmail.com (Claudia Guerrero), PLENK2010
En el foro Helpful Hints and Scaffolds, Susan O'Grady y Chris Jobling comparten una excelente lista de herramientas para explorar.En especial me gustó la No 21 Tools available for academics http://digitalresearchtools.pbworks.com/, incluye una relación de la herramienta con aquello que nos proponemos.Cuando he visto todas estas posibilidades me acordé del sitio Merlot, no sé si se encuentren en algún punto los PLE y los OA, como también en su momento parecería que un curso completo ....

Catching My Breath and Reflecting as Teacher & Student
akh003, Haas | Learning
Like many in my Flat Classroom Certification cohort, I have to admit that having a week to breathe in the certification course and do catch up really was appreciated. Simultaneously following and participating in PLENK2010, has been arduous and taken a bit of a dip the last two weeks. Plus, I found myself in what an old friend referred to as an assessment bottleneck, which is code for English teachers, meaning I had a load of papers to read. Combined with a few Writing Project initiatives I .... [Link] 2010-10-27T21:00:57

#PLENK2010 Learners’ needs
suifaijohnmak, Suifaijohnmak's Weblog
Love what Jenny said here, the needs of learners come first.  Once there was an interesting motto: Customers are always right – they are the kings and queens, without them, the business won’t survive.  Sounds true. Whenever I posted such … Continue reading → [Link] 2010-10-27T21:49:32

PLENK2010 A Very Important Blog
noreply@blogger.com (Skupik), Skupiktalk
I listen to the CBC Radio 1. There is music, but there is more talk. A very good program is Spark. The feed of October 24 is available at the moment at www.cbc.ca/spark This week's show is about using technology to monitor, record, and store our lives. Are we being treated as under-performing technologies? Will robots find us useless [Link] 2010-10-27T21:30:00

#PLENK2010 Connectivist Folder Window
x28, x28's new Blog » PLENK2010
Seemingly, for each conceivable purpose and preference, there is a tool that exists. This might be true for the communication and collaboration purposes on the social or person-to-person level of connectivism, but not for its conceptual level. Just consider such a simple thing as drawing a connection line between two items in your folders on your hard drive. This was discussed in a paper for PKM2010 and demonstrated with a prototype.

A model of a PLE: Socratic questioning or connectist participation in an information stream?
noreply@blogger.com (Welsh Cloggy), Observations about learning, knowledge and technology
Maria Andersen presented at #PLENK2010 today. She discussed her ideas of a Personal Learning Environment. she proposed a new model of education, rather than to rebuild the old system. A revolution, rather than an evolution as she couldn't really see institutions changing very much.Her ideas for a PLE are quite different from the connectivist model and this has in my view a lot to do with her view of knowledge. As a mathematician she still sees a place for a basic body of knowledge that .... [Link] 2010-10-27T19:25:00

#PLENK2010 The Elements of a Network Learning and Development Platform: A Beginning

Space and language
noreply@blogger.com (Guillaume Janssen), knowledge remix
New media literacy requires a certain number of skills to function in a digital environment or in an online network.  Varying levels of technical skills, conceptual mindsets and critical literacies will determine a user's level of engagement with web 2.0 tools and with the social space.  A clear distinction between digital natives and immigrants (based on criteria of technological skills and age) has now been replaced by the more subtle difference between Visitors and Residents.
