CCK11 - My Second MOOC
noreply@blogger.com (Paul Ellerman), Paul's Learning Blog
This week is the start of CCK11 (Connectivism and Connective Knowledge 2011) and I am looking forward to participating in it.  I took part in PLENK2010, but found my involvement dwindled at towards the second half of the course for a variety of reasons.  I think part the problem was time, but it also my first foray back into something academic in almost 10 years, which I don't think I was quite prepared for.  I am eager to get involved in CCK11 though, I have a ...

Notes from Dave Cormiers 5 points about PLEs and PLNs
noreply@blogger.com (Paul Ellerman), Paul's Learning Blog
http://davecormier.com/edblog/2010/09/12/5-points-about-ples-plns-for-plenk10/ 1. PLE's are different from and LMS. LMS are course oriented, whereas a PLE is learning orienteated. 2. There is a difference between a PLE and a PLN. What the difference is depends on what an indivdiual thinks an environemtn is vs a network. 3. PLEs do not need to be supported by institions, but rather the learner owns and controls thier own stuff. 4. Ownership and Time are important aspects in ... [Link] 2010-09-15T15:22:00
