CCK08: Pitchforks Right, Burning Torches Left, Please
Right now, education is defined by the educators, because they have the power. But, "What if the educators' roles were to be defined - and redefined - by the learners?" And in particular, "We have a view of education as a consensual public good, in which specifically trained or approved authorities make choices about how it should play out. But what if something happened that removed the mechanisms of value measurement and simply bypassed current authorities?"

MOOCs, Connectivism, Humpty Dumpty and More - with Dave Cormier
Dave Cormier talks to a conference in britain about the emerging model instantiated by the current Connectivism and Connective Knowledge course. There are links to an Elluminate version as well as to an audio podcast. Graham Attwell, Pontydysgu, November 10, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

CCK08 Is Connectivism a Learning Network?
My answer to this question is 'yes'. But if it is, then as Frances Bell suggests, it should be able to be modified by the entire community, and not just George and myself. Case in point: "There are little or no links between ANT and connectivism... it has not been taken up by more than few participants, and not by connectivism's chief protagonists, Stephen Downes and George Siemens... Can we help turn them into weak links, and then influence connectivism?" Frances Bell, Frances Bell's Blog, November 10, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
