    The process and tools are overwhelming to
    students if presented all at once.

    As with
    any instructional design, the teacher determines the pace at which the

    students best assimilate each new learning tool.
    For this particular project, a

    new tool
    was introduced each day over two weeks. Once the construction process

    was complete, there were a number of personal
    web page aggregators that could

    have been
    selected to bring everything together in one place. Options at the
    included iGoogle, PageFlakes, NetVibes, and Symbaloo. These
    offer a means to compile or pull together content from a variety of web

    applications. A web widget or gadget is a bit of
    code that is executed within

    personal web page to pull up external content from other sites. The

    in this case designed the personal web page
    using the gadgets needed in the

    that best met their learning goals. Figure 3 is an instructor example of

    personal webpage that includes the reader, email, personal blog, note

    program, and social bookmarks on one
  • The personal learning environment can take the place of a traditional textbook, though does not preclude the student from using a textbook or accessing one or more numerous open source texts that may be available for the research topic. The goal is to access content from many sources to effectively meet the learning objectives. The next challenge is to determine whether those objectives have been met.

    • Assessment

      There were four components of the assessment process for this test case of the Networked Student Model: (1) Ongoing performance assessment in the form of weekly assignments to facilitate the construction and maintenance of the personal learning environment, (2) rubric-based assessment of the personal learning environment at the end of the project, (3) written essay, and (4) multimedia synthesis of topic content.

      Points were earned for meeting the following requirements:

      • Identify ten reliable resources and post to social bookmarking account. At least three new resources should be added each week.
      • Subscribe and respond to at least 3 new blogs each week. Follow these blogs and news alerts using the reader.
      • Subscribe to and listen to at least two podcasts (if available).
      • Respectfully contact and request a video conference from a subject matter expert recognised in the field.
      • Maintain daily notes and highlight resources as needed in digital notebook.
      • Post at least a one-paragraph reflection in personal blog each day.
      At the end of the project, the personal learning environment was assessed with a rubric that encompassed each of the items listed above.

      The student's ability to synthesise the research was further evaluated with a reflective essay. Writing shapes thinking (Langer & Applebee, 1987), and the essay requirement was one more avenue through which the students demonstrated higher order learning. The personal blog provided an opportunity for regular reflection during the course of the project. The essay was the culmination of the reflections along with a thoughtful synthesis of the learning experience. Students were instructed to articulate what was learned about the selected topic and why others should care or be concerned. The essay provided an overview of everything learned about the contemporary issue. It was well organised, detailed, and long enough to serve as a resource for others who wished to learn from the work. As part of a final exam, the students were required to access the final projects of their classmates and reflect on what they learned from this exposure. The purpose of this activity was to give the students an additional opportunity to share and learn from each other.

      Creativity is considered a key 21st century skill (Partnership for 21st Century Skills, 2009). A number of emerging web applications support the academic creative process. Students in this project used web tools to combine text, video, audio, and photographs to teach the research topics to others. The final multimedia project was posted or embedded on the student's personal wiki page.

      Analysis and assessment of student work was facilitated by the very technologies in use by the students. In order to follow their progress, the teacher simply subscribed to student social bookmarking accounts, readers, and blogs. Clicking through daily contributions was relatively quick and efficient.

  • In the case of informal learning, however, the structure is much looser.

    • People pursue their own objectives in their own way, while at the same time initiating and sustaining an ongoing dialogue with others pursuing similar objectives.
    • Learning and discussion is not structured, but rather, is determined by the needs and interests of the participants.
    • There is no leader; each person participates as they deem appropriate.
    • There are no boundaries; people drift into and out of the conversation as their knowledge and interests change.

  • The PLE is not an application, but rather, a description of the process of learning in situ from a variety of courses and according to one’s personal, context-situated, needs. The process, simply, is that learners will be presented with learning resources according to their interests, aptitudes, educational levels, and other factors (including employer factor and social factors) while they are in the process of working at their job, engaging in a hobby, or playing a game.

  • 你是否进一步发掘并为互联网创造了价值呢?我想这个就是区别了。我一般会边走边上网(多次险些被车撞或者撞到美女=b=),利用黑莓手机的优势,收发来自不同讨论组的email和我通过email订阅 的blog,用专门的RSS阅读工具看我订阅的blog(许多在线RSS阅读器都有手机版的),看新闻,通过微博客网站更新我的状态以及我的想法,有时也 会用网络查询路线地点。其实许多人的手机都可以做这些事情的。而在电脑前的时候,可做的事情就更多的:读自己订阅的blog并且思考,更新自己的 Blog,折腾一下Blog模板和插件什么的, 编辑几个Wiki的词条……实在太多了,哈哈。说实话,我并不喜欢电脑本身,因为我不是技术员,只是喜欢它所呈现的东西。

  • 周五论坛
  • 其实在周五论坛中,可以看到益学会的一些影子,包括我们的“协调员”制。
  • 大多数时候,我们并不是要讨论出某个确切的结果或者立竿见影的结论,重 点就是你在讨论的过程中你学会了聆听别人,回应别人,尊重别人;
  • 对我来说,它们都是开放、共享的组织,他们都注重每一位参与者的成长与价值。在这 里面,没有权威,没有一种对立的关系。
  • >在周五论坛中我们特意设计的是“圆桌”气氛,而在益学会中则是不分年龄和地域的沟通。益学会的影响力要比周五论坛大 很多,但我们所做的终极目的是一样的:学会学习,做一个有用的人!
