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.

How will we build human groups called "networks"?
, Week Eight General Discussion
by JG Chesney.  Last week, in a Week 7 thread, Scott posted a great question I would love to hear folks' thoughts on: http://ple.elg.ca/course/moodle/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=456&parent=3037 To quote from Scott's post: "The darkness: We seem to keep circling back to institutions as the wall surrounding learning that limits and stifles. Yet humans love to gather and interact and what a wonderful way to learn in the presence of others--yes? But if we are too dumb to reinvent .... [Link] 2010-11-04T20:51:39

Where is the information that we have lost in data?
, Week Eight General Discussion
by Ken Masters.   Hi AllIn one of the readings (Frand & Lippincott), there is a quote from "a 1910 poem" by T.S.Eliot. The lines quoted are:Where is the wisdom that we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge that we have lost in information? Where is the information that we have lost in data?Now, my knowledge of Eliot is sketchy (and I last read him more than 20 years ago), but that last line: "Where is the information that we have lost in data?" just sort ....

What is Knowledge?
, Week Eight General Discussion
by Chris Jobling.   The published start time for this week's session (a facilitator discussion, the guest Harold Jarche will now be Friday) hadn't taken in to account the start of Daylight Savings Time in Europe (last week end) so I wandered in early to find out I was thirty minutes late.There was a very interesting discussion about the nature of knowledge, which went way over my head (perhaps I had to be there at the start), which seemed to consist of George arguing with ....

The C*R*A*P method of KM
, Week Eight General Discussion
by Ken Anderson.  I've been staring at this discussion forum all week, waiting for something to happen. Has some form of forum-fatique set in? I can't wait any longer, I must post something....even if it is just rambling....Since acronyms are all the rage in KM, I want to share my own acronym: CRAP. CRAP refers to my method of KM: Complex Reiterative Analytical Placement. While acknowledging that we are SUPPOSED to manage our knowledge in keeping with certain principles as ....

PLE for Government
, Week Eight General Discussion
by Stephen sdixon.  Pardon me if my topic is a little out of kilter for this week I work for a provincial government organization and I am interested to learn if anyone might have an example of Personal Learning Environments or Connectivisim for learning in Government. If so, what types of subject matter are most appropriate? One of the benefits I see is for government departments to begin to more effectively align and share their practices. Whether it is public service delivery, .... [Link] 2010-11-01T16:10:46

How do you manage your information/knowledge

An Alternative to the Wiki
noreply@blogger.com (Learning Curves), Connected Teachers & Connected Students
Despite by unwavering conviction to the wiki as the digital hub of the 21st century classroom, I do recognize that for some courses and certain teachers, the wiki might not be the best platform. Instead of using complicated LMS (Learning Management Systems) like Moodle Web CT or Blackboard that try to be everything to everyone one, I recommend using the simple blogging platform instead. Not only can the teacher use it to post homework and resources, but he/she can also easily link to the .... [Link] 2010-11-05T00:11:00

SHARING THE KNOWLEDGE, #PLENK2010
noreply@blogger.com (Veronica Baig), Loose Ends
The online discussion yesterday in #PLENK2010 was very interesting contemplating the nature of data, information, knowledge and the relationship between these concepts. It was new territory for me, and it was a mind-stretching experience. I'm sorry to be missing tomorrow's online session with Harold Jarche, but I'm off to a local conference for the next two days where I will be attempting to share what knowledge I have acquired about PLEs over the past two months. I'll have .... [Link] 2010-11-04T22:03:00

#PLENK2010 Growing knowledge with PIM
x28, x28's new Blog » PLENK2010
I don’t duck out of the inevitable D-I-K (-W) definition started in the forums. But more interesting than a single definition of knowledge, are the new distinctions of knowledge types that are afforded by connectivist notions, and the distinct usages of the terms. So, managing/ dealing with/ traversing pieces of information might well be called knowledge management because it generates or grows knowledge. Read more... [Link] 2010-11-04T19:39:56

Are people Keeping Their Distance from a Creepy Treehouse? #PLENK
noreply@blogger.com (Glen Gatin), Conviviality Corners
Suifaijohnmak Weblog asks the question "Why are people staying away from the forum?" This is the #PLENK Moodle forum that is being used to support a MOOC, a massively online open course. John details some possible reasons in his post and a number of commenters add excellent insights. I find this quite interesting as well and it seems that somehow this particular MOOC has triggered the creepy treehouse effect. Stein offers a number of definitions for this phenomena but this one seems apt. n. .... [Link] 2010-11-04T15:15:00

PLENK2010 Cognitive Misers
noreply@blogger.com (Skupik), Skupiktalk
PLENK2010 I subscribe to Delancey Place. Every day I get an excerpt from an interesting book. Today's offering (Nov 4, 2010) is about cognitive miserliness: our tendency to jump to the obvious answer rather than the correct answer which takes a bit more work.http://delanceyplace.blogspot.com/During the last score of years, few mathematics teachers bother teaching how to solve "word problems" or "story problems". When the commercial tests give only 1-3 marks for a word problem, and the .... [Link] 2010-11-04T13:08:00
