Week 4 Elluminate Discussions
This week, we want to hear from you. Come into one of the two Elluminate discussions (both sessions can be accessed via this link) at 11 am CST (See time zone conversions) and 7 pm CST (See time zone conversions) and tell us what your experiences of the course have been so far. We'll keep the microphones open for you, or, if you don't want to talk, give us your views in the text chat. George Siemens and Stephen Downes, Elluminate, October 1, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

CCK08 Week 3 - Connections with Adult Learning
Jenni Parker has an interesting way of keeping track of her participation in the course, not only summarizing the content but also identifying the connections she has made and citing key quotes. See her blog as a whole for more examples of this. Jenni Parker, Connecting Online COO9, October 1, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Emergent Social Networks

This post looks at the chart depicted above, from Valdis Krebs's presentation last week. "George asked him about how to deal with the people in the outside ring. Should we pull them in, get them more active? Krebs told us that there is 'no requirement to bring those in but its nice to know who they are and where they are. You can be a very pasive participant in one environment and a very active one in another, so its not just by personality. Its what you consider is important and what u consider urself skilled at.'" If you are one of the people around the outside, disconnected, who are watching, but not participating - don't worry. You still have a presence in the network, and your presence is acknowledge and valued as well. Joost Robben, Learning in a sandbox, October 1, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

CCK08 - Whether I Do or I Don't Makes a Difference
Dave Pollard asks eight questions about connectivism. I focus on one, but Concetta Gotlieb answers all eight. Concetta Gotlieb, Edusnacks, October 1, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Autism - Networks
I don't understand autism. I wonder if anyone who has not had an autistic child (or is autistic) can truly understand the experience. Gina Minks shares some personal thoughts on autism (see also her post network working and autism...and her blog focused on Asperger's). Gina raises an interesting point about the need for any learning theory to address the breadth of learners and learner needs. I'd love to be able to provide some type of informed commentary, but it is not an area of learning to which I've given sufficient thought. I am, however, intrigued by the connections Gina is making...and will continue follow as she develops her thoughts. Gina Minks, , September 30, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

This short reflection on learning from the periphery has been exactly my experience in my own learning through blogs and social networks: "While I'm not nearly as involved with this course as I'd like to be, I do feel as if I've gained a lot through my participation". He then makes an important observation about the value of active involvement: "Over the years, I can honestly say that I've experienced an equal amount of give and take through my face to face connections with others. But when it comes to my online connections, I've been too much of a lurker for too long. I've lingered on the fringes of my online networks and I've collected a bunch of knowledge that I've really only been sharing effectively with small groups of people through my traditional networks. I have come to the realization that I need to find more ways to give back to some of the people in my online networks. It's time for me to find more ways to reciprocate and share some of the knowledge that I've been guarding." It's more than just sharing knowledge. When I first started elearnspace, I discovered I learned differently when I shared and tried to articulate what I thought were important elements in an article or blog post. Sharing isn't just about helping others. It's also about helping ourselves to understand a concept in a more complete manner. ANDY MCKIEL, , September 30, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
