Harmonizing Learning and Education -e-Literate
large OV in response to Cormier, Downes, et al concerning active learning, course design, lib Ed. The title says it all, but here's some more: "This is partly a workplace argument. It’s an economic value argument. It’s a public good argument. If Dave is right, then people who care about learning are going to be better at just about any job you throw at them than people who don’t. This is a critical argument in favor of public funding of a liberal arts education, personalized in the old-fashioned sense of having-to-do-with-individual-persons, that much of academia has ceded for no good reason I can think of. The sticky wicket, though, is accountability which, as Dave points out, is the main reason we have a schism between learning and education in the first place

Sensemaking artifacts « Connectivism
A set of diagrams and maps illustrating how learners make sense of their early encounter with a PLE/MOOC environ.

"The teacher’s coherence or subject views aren’t “duplicated” by students. Of course some basic knowledge elements exist, but the way we come to know them in networks is different from the process of coming to know them in classrooms."

1. They reflect the sensemaking activity that the individual has experienced – how he connected different concepts within a course or how he came to understand the relationship between different entities.

2. They are a sensegiving tool. When learners are transparent in their learning through the production and sharing of artifacts, they teach others.

The Ed Techie: Social media learning principles
Martin Weller on six principles to keep in mind while designing networked instruction.
1. <embed> is the universal acid of the web – we should build around it.
2. Simple with reach trumps complex with small audience.
3. Sharing is a motivation to participation - so make it easy and rewarding to do.
4. Start simple and let others build on top
5. Providing limitations frames input (Cf twitter, 12seconds, etc)
6. Complexity resides in the network not the application
