Mid-Course Review
I've posted a 12 minute review of the course so far...and the second half of the course. We have now laid a foundation for thinking about connectivism. We've addressed knowledge, network attributes, different types of networks/groups, history of networks and social learning, and this week, chaos/complexity. With this foundation in place, we'll spend time now looking at implications. This portion of the course will help to provide discussion on both implementation and the milieu in which connectivism occurs (and is impacted by).

Chaos, Complexity and Language Learning
A participant in our elluminate session today (it might even have been Stephen) suggested that we need "complexity simplified" - a comment on the lack of resources providing concise commentary on complexity and chaos. Bill Harshbarger offers a view of chaos and complexity in language learning. Two diagrams at the end of the article demonstrate the difference between linear design views of learning and complex views. The shift is fundamental to an alternative view of tomorrow's education system. Bill Harshbarger, , October 15, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Connectivism in Second Life
Fleep Tuque has put together a great resource in Second Life for CCK08. The above link requires that you have Second Life installed. If you do, you can stop by the site, have a seat, and enjoy reading a few articles or connecting with a few colleagues. Great work Fleep!

Alec Couros Presentation
The recording from Alec Couros' presentation today is now available. The session explored open learning and open teaching...and the many attendant issues (such and privacy, anonymity, and the "never-forget" nature of the web). Alec Couros, , October 15, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
