Critical Thinking as a Distributed Course - 2 views

  • Drawing from two years of experience offering the 'Connectivism and Connective Knowledge' course in a distributed online environment, the National Research Council's Personal Learning Environment (PLE) project is expanding the model to courses outside the discipline of education. Specifically, Stephen Downes and Rita Kop - who have both offered Critical Thinking courses through more traditional online and offline means, are adapting this material to the distributed model. The purpose of this course is two-fold. First, the design of the course is based on an understanding of the skills and capacities required to effectively learn using a PLE. Second, the offering of the course is intended to test whether learners can employ a PLE environment in order to develop those capacities. Thus, combined, the objectives of the course are intended to demonstrate whether learning may be self-directed with a PLE, or whether an additional pedagogy is required prior to the use of a PLE. Research will form an integral component of the course.

An Interview with Anil Dash, Director of Expert Labs | techPresident - 1 views

  • Expert Labs is a new, independent non-profit effort that's trying at its most ambitious to improve the decisions policy makers make, by giving them the tools to tap into crowdsourcing in the same way that private companies do every day. We're part of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (the folks who publish the journal Science) and we're backed by the MacArthur Foundation.

    "Online programs are generally profitable. But despite the buzz about Web 2.0, the education they provide is still dominated by rudimentary, text-based technology." "Any innovation... [is] really to supplement what is still a pretty rudimentary core."

    Classroom2.0: Twitter, del.icio.us and participatory learning diigo it ShareThis Published at February 10, 2008 in Education and Technology. Print This Post Email This Post twitpost.jpg I do not use a textbook. It is not that I dislike textbooks. It is that my textbook is the web. My textbook is YOU and ME and NOW. Instead of a book, I add all relevant readings, videos or examples to my course delicious bookmarks. That's my virtual, live, textbook - licensed under Creative Commons. And students don't have to blow 60 bucks on it either. And they can subscribe to this textbook using their favourite feed reader. And unlike textbooks, social bookmarking tools enable and activate inquiry, curiosity and ownership of knowledge acquisition. Right now v. back then As I explained to my class, the most important stuff to know about the web is what's happening RIGHT NOW. I may share a video or article in a couple of weeks that has yet to be written. Course readings are not mandatory - because I share most of the stuff in-class but secondary. If students are confused or if they want to dig deeper, they've got Youtube tutorials, how to's and hundreds of articles and research supporting everything I'm talking about in the course.

Wired Campus: Whitman Takes Manhattan - Chronicle.com - 0 views

    How would we integrate information about this effort as a resource in alt.wetpaint?
  •  
    "The basic idea is to bring all four of these classes together in this one space," Mr. Gold said in an interview. Each class will have its own turf on the Web site, and each will concentrate on a different era of the poet's life. Students at NYU and City Tech will focus on Whitman in mid-19th-century New York, those at Mary Washington will examine his Civil War-era experience, and the Rutgers contingent will turn its attention to his sage-of-Camden period. Each group will work with and annotate the relevant edition or editions of Leaves of Grass. Each will have access to the others' work. So will the general public - at least that's the plan. "We really don't know what these interactions will be like," Mr. Gold said. "It's one of the risks of the project but also one of the exciting things about it."
