#plenk2010: Excavating some learning trends
lindsayjordan, Life through a Linz
I’m happy to say that, having read through Connectivism; a Learning Theory for the Digital Age a couple of times, the connectivist perspective – what it is, what it isn’t – is becoming clearer to me. One key question I had after watching the video was how connectivism differs from the social constructivist perspective. The [...] [Link] 2011-01-07T15:50:05

#plenk2010: Complicated like an aeroplane? Or complex like the weather?
lindsayjordan, Life through a Linz
Getting a head start on CCK11 Week 1: Connectivism with some thoughts about Richard Schwier’s video interview with George Siemens: I *think* what George was saying was that connectivism is a perspective of knowledge as existing in connections, with learning as the navigation of the connections that open doors to new knowledge. I like the emphasis [...] [Link] 2011-01-05T22:07:40

I thought about [...] [Link] 2010-09-27T21:21:33

#Plenk2010: Strategies for not going insane
lindsayjordan, Life through a Linz
Hi Dave – I guess this issue is very much at the forefront of my mind as I (like you) am embarking on #plenk2010. I’m finding the need to deal with such a massive wave of data quite overwhelming, and I’m hoping to find some sort of ‘niche’ within this huge, sprawling animal fairly soon, [...] [Link] 2010-09-14T16:59:35

Embarking on PLENK 2010
lindsayjordan, Life through a Linz
#plenk2010 So I’ve signed up for a MOOC. For those not up with the lingo this is a Massive Open Online Course. It’s a bit ‘meta’ cos it’s kind of like a MOOC about MOOCs that is based on an exploration of personal learning environments (PLEs), and everyone involved is obviously really enthusiastic about PLEs, which [...] [Link] 2010-09-13T12:26:34
