George Siemens Gets Connected - Technology - The Chronicle of Higher Education - 0 views

  • Learning is not just about the content of a lesson. It is about belonging to a community.
  • "If you're always moving away from something, you'll be lost," Mr. Siemens remembers a priest telling him. "Always be moving toward something."
  • "For me, we can't even talk like that," Mr. Cormier tells me. "It's messy, and it's always going to be messy, and those sort of clean lines are not even something we should strive for."

  • "If you care about it," he tells me, "you should make it something that can outlast you, that people can make their own."

Reading Writing Responding: Tinkering, Passion and the Wildfire that is Learning - 0 views

  • whether you are creating an environment where learning can take flight - dry kindling, tall trees - or are you creating an environment where, with a lot of damp branches, there is a lot of smoke, but little fire?

    "In a fantastic discussion as a part of +Ed Tech Crew Episode 240 focusing on what it takes to be an IT co-ordinator, +Ashley Proud spoke about the demise in tinkering amongst students. Although +Mel Cashen and +Roland Gesthuizen mentioned about taking things a part, giving the conversation a more mechanical theme, I feel that tinkering is best understood as a wider curiosity into the way things work."
