Discussion Posts

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

Answering this week's questions...
, Week Seven General Discussion
by JG Chesney.  I took a bit of a leap in a future direction in further describing my PLE in answering this week's questions and would welcome your thoughts. Here's the link: http://divaopera.blogspot.com/2010/10/plens-of-future-and-ocean-of-maya. [Link] 2010-10-29T04:45:44

More info requested for "Someone Else's Space pattern"
, Week Seven General Discussion
by JG Chesney.  In Wilson's Patterns in PLEs reading for this week, he states: "Where a strong instructional design is needed, use the Someone Else's Space pattern for learning networks." Googled around for Someone Else's Space pattern and did not find anything. Does anyone know what specifically this pattern is/looks like and can point me to more details?

PLENK2010 The Drowning Student
noreply@blogger.com (Skupik), Skupiktalk
Tom Daly has given me permission to share this with you.Before you can help your drowning student, you have to be honest and ask yourself some hard questions.First, look at the relationship you have with this student.If you're like me, your feelings about this type of student fit either of these two models: 1. The Mutual Truce 2. Mortal CombatI know you're busy, so let's just look at the first one for now and I'll address the other one in my next email.--------THE .... [Link] 2010-10-29T04:31:00

PLE/Ns of the Future and the Ocean of Maya
J.G. Chesney, Sparks & Flashes
Week 7 of #PLENK2010 has been focused on PLE/Ns tools with the adjective "new" used three times in the questions to we students to answer. While tool talk can be interesting, I am more taken with the need for us to understand what a PLE truly encompasses because I see so much of what is in the PLE simply unchartered, save for a passing remark in Wilson's "Patterns of personal learning environments" where he says; "Connect the metadata and sensors of the object to the network; allow the ....

#PLENK Art of questioning
suifaijohnmak, Suifaijohnmak's Weblog
I have been employing questioning techniques throughout my teaching career. What I realized was that: The more I know, the more that I know I don’t know, especially through questioning.  I may even be challenging myself with lots of questions, … Continue reading → [Link] 2010-10-29T00:51:23

Replacing the CAGE: Do PLE's help overcome the Hidden Curriculum? #PLENK
noreply@blogger.com (Glen Gatin), Conviviality Corners
Take off on one of my favorite Bruce Cockburn songs, Pacing the Cage. I think the song is pretty personal but I think of people who are confined in other types of cages. Bruce has championed First Nations issues in Canada for many years. A major construct in critical pedagogy is the hidden curriculum The idea is that different people experience the same education curriculum differently depending on their race, gender, socioeconomic status, their social strata, their CAGE.
