Discussion Posts

Each week, PLENK moves to a new weekly discussion forum. You can see them all here.

, Week Three General Discussion
by Paul Ellerman.  I just finsihed a post on the blog about recommenders (From Rita's post The eXtended Web and PLEs) and interested in the Recommenders. I listed some recommenders in my post, or at least what i think of as recommenders and was wondering what other recommenders already exist out [Link] 2010-09-30T01:41:46

How can educators influence the eXtended web to enhance learning?
, Week Three General Discussion
by Rita Kop.   Quite a few negative issues have been brought up this week warning about the negative impact of linked data, especially issues related to privacy, but also about issues such as: who would be owning and linking the data and would be in charge of the distribution of it? Would they take data out of context? Would it be acceptable that business corporations are in charge of this process, or should people with an interest in education and learning be concerned about this? .... [Link] 2010-09-30T00:51:06

Emerging Technology Trends - Social Media Integration Into the Classroom
, Week Three General Discussion
by Gus Goncalves.  Sarah Kessler (@SarahFKessler) from the blogging site "Mashable" posted a new article today entitled "The Case for Social Media in Schools".In this post she talks about many of the ideas that we discuss in PLENK2010. So this got me thinking. To what extent do the ideas that we talk in PLENK2010 have been "disseminated" into the overall teaching environment? Is there a way that we can measure this "dissemination"? Has this ".... [Link] 2010-09-29T20:43:57

Recommenders - What? (Paul Ellerman), Paul's Learning Blog
I just finished reading Rita Kop's blog post called The eXTended Web and PLEs. One of things she talks about are Recommenders. I think that the idea of having a tool / resource that would recommend things I was interested in would be great. But what does a recommender look like? Do they already exist? If so, what do they look like?Thinking of my PLE, I tried to identify what, if any recommenders did I have in there?  Friends and Colleagues - they know my interests and often share ....

Not to get too intimidated!
Tony Ratcliffe, Tony Ratcliffe
There is no question, #PLENK2010 has a wealth of experience and knowledge amonst the participants. Those new to the academic discussion, and the volume of discussion overall, may be overwhelmed. How can everything be understood? Well, not to worry. First, there were the analogies to demonstrate why one could not possible take it all in. [...] [Link] 2010-09-30T02:47:06

#PLENK2010 Showing up in person (Skupik), Skupiktalk
#PLENK2010 In schooling, they say, most of your marks come from just showing up.  I really enjoyed my first SL meeting after today's Ellumination.  We had some discussion of the lesson and some discussion of communications around the world.  I was very pleased to be greeted by someone who knew me, and to meet new people. It was a bit disconcerting to hear different names from the ones written above our avatars, but I soon caught on.  I had attended the room, last .... [Link] 2010-09-29T22:58:00

PLENK10 Adding to the Online Flow
rogersvlle, Rogersvlle's Blog
Further reflection about the flow of the internet and my associated flow with it brings me to the view that as we learn in any setting we grow and change our thinking. This shift in disposition empowers new learning especially … Continue reading → [Link] 2010-09-29T20:33:21

Week 3: The eXtended Web
Chris Jobling, Fresh and Crispy
This week's PLENK2010 topic is an exploration of what Steve Wheeler has called Web 3.0, Stephen Downes has christened Web X, George Siemens calls xWeb and Rita Kop calls the eXtended Web. I prefer Sir Tim Berners-Lee's name of the Data Web introduced in this TED talk and discussed here (Pivot My Data) back in March. Out of interest, I present the Wordles of, clockwise from top left, [Link] 2010-09-29T18:54:00

#PLENK2010 (VII): Internet del futuro (Eva Cisma), ELEopositando
    Con los materiales de esta tercera semana de curso nos sumergimos en lo que está por llegar: la Web 3.0, la neXt Web, la eXtended Web, la XWeb, la Web X y una retahíla de términos para referirse al futuro de Internet. Esto, como las versiones de Windows, solo que, en este caso, cada autoridad se decantará por una u otra etiqueta.    Esta Web 3.0 va a suponer la liberación completa de los datos (¡Ojalá!). Datos sin adulterar o, lo que es lo mismo, el ¡Row .... [Link] 2010-09-29T18:51:00

Does technology alone become the PLE?
Tony Ratcliffe, Tony Ratcliffe
After week 2 of PLENK2010, we are still left with the question of whether or not the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) is the technology used or if it is encompassing of other aspects such as people, conversations, books, and other non-digital artifacts. Also, can it be a PLE if developed and provided by an organization [...] [Link] 2010-09-29T18:40:29

A little bit frightened by PLENK2010 week 3
Linn, Jakten på den perfekta lektionen
I guess to come to "true" conclusions the web 3.0 will have to also gather data "lie detector-like" from the signals and reactions in our body. And, hm, I guess "social web phobia" might then become a huge health problem in developed countries. Picture from m´rafs photostream on [Link] 2010-09-29T17:23:00

#PLENK2010 Feedback Is So Helpful (Skupik), Skupiktalk
Thank you to everyone who has commented on my blog.  It is heartening to know that others care.  People in Newfoundland are showing us the way in terms of disasters.  We're cheerfully carrying on with cleanup and helping one another, too.   Don't know why, when I put in a link you get the computer talk, too, in the RSS.  I do take it out in my blog.   This course has helped distract me from the dangers ahead.  Our BC Hydro power may go out ....

Heli, Heli on Connectivism
As I earlier said, my Personal Learning Environment is everywhere I go and participate. I am not interested in defining concepts or discussing about nuances. But I have to clarify my ways of working during PLENK2010. I have waited some wise ideas how to work, but found again my old ones. I must have a [...] [Link] 2010-09-29T12:09:11

The question of complexity (Guillaume Janssen), knowledge remix
LMS vs PLEs.  The heading for two of last week's reading list for week 2 of #PLENK2010 evokes a power struggle.  It's all about "balancing teacher control and student autonomy" (Wendy Drexler), or a "conflict between a centralised and a decentralised model" (Martin Weller), open vs closed systems etc.  What is at stake here is power and control. Comparing one system with another brings up this type of dichotomies in an almost natural fashion.  And by the way, how .... [Link] 2010-09-29T11:18:00
