Putting It Into Action
This is a great example of the idea that teaching is more like 'modeling and demonstrating' than it is like 'telling'. Lisa Lane applies the technique of 'glossing' in an open way, encouraging students to take part in their own analysis of the text. Interestingly, when people begin to work with a text in this way, they begin to see for themselves - far more clearly than I could ever state - the complexity behind even simple expressions like Paris is the capital of France 9and, consequently, the conditions under which such a statement is 'true').

The Theory Underlying Concept Maps and How to Construct and Use Them[
This is a longish paper, but worth a look if you're especially interested in concept maps. It outlines the theory behind concept maps, including instruction on how to read them and how to create them. Numerous examples and illustrations; a very complete paper. This item was submitted by Glen Gatin to the CCK08 Diigo group. Joseph D. Novak and Alberto J. Canas, Florida Institute for Human and Machine Cognition, September 18, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Aggregating content has been the primary focus of web activity since the development of RSS. Some sites have more recently have started to try and add a bit of structure to aggregation from large number of sources. Silobreaker is an example. Kyle Matthews has set up a memetracker for the connectivism course. Topics, themes, and related links are grouped (where there is duplication and relatedness).

Recording: Session 2
The is a recording of our second session. Conversation took a different path than the first session as we focused more on motivation, coping with complexity, and learning as secondary function to completing personally engaging tasks.
