getting caught up on the elluminate recording – what an amazing technology – the chat concurrent with the lecture and the whiteboard. “join the discussion” is the theme – pick a path, find some peers and join the discussion. i liked very much the video i watched yesterday where George talked about networks being a model, but learning happening through connections… oh he’s just talking about it again, in terms of the difference between constructionism and connectivism. but to have a discussion, there needs to be some relational connection – someone to communicate with… i’ve been working for … Continue reading “if something’s missing, create it” CCK11 discoverable artifacts
