Deleuze for Developers: Deterritorialization - 2 views

  • this diagram of the assemblage
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Looks like a network.
  • writing style that they probably find opaque
    • Terry Elliott
       
      That is an understatement. Combine that with translation and you have a potent, nay real chance for misunderstanding.  I find much of it unreadable and I suspect it is purposely so.
  • This process is called 'deterritorialization.’ Healing the lines, repairing them, and re-containing the boundary is called 'reterritorialization.’
    • Terry Elliott
       
      What if the boundary is semi-permeable as it often is on both micro and macro levels in natural settings.

  • Obviously, the Twitter-assemblage is interconnected with a ton of other assemblages that represent other services.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Yes, semipermeable, filtered in some way.

      I am a Naturalist-in-Training at Bernheim Forest and we call ourselves 'interpreters'--we are pass throughs I suppose.
  • authentic embodiment of a role at an instant.

      Improvisation?

  • role of the 'rhizomatic teacher' is to enable the learner not to drown,
    • Terry Elliott
       
      So the role of the rhizomatic learner is to not drown?
  • MC or a master of ceremonies.

  • The walls were always only virtual even if they were made of, and were considered, concrete.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      The fourth wall: permeable AND solid. I choose permeable like the hyphae on a rhizome.

Will · The Lazy Language of Learning - 0 views

  • I think Gary Stager gets it right:

    In the absence of a clear and publicly articulated vision for a school or district and a misguided quest for the holy grail of balance, the weeds will always kill the flowers. If you are a school leader with a coherent vision for educational progress, you must articulate your vision clearly and publicly so people will follow. Why make others guess what you want and stand for?

      Critique of Dave Cormier's attitude in rhizomatic learning?
  • The elements that comprise this Gear include:

    Personalized Learning 
    Student-Centered Learning 
    Authentic, Deeper Learning 
    21st Century Skills 
    College and Career Readiness 
    Digital Citizenship 
    Technology Skills 
    Anywhere, Anytime Learning

      Do any of these bullets rise up from the folk, from the learner, from the community and the rhizome?
      Don't think so.  Could they?  Of course.  It all depends upon which end of the stick and which end you 'valorize'.
  • Are students learning our stuff (curriculum) or their stuff (interests)?
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Which is rhizomatic practice?  Are any left out in this dichotomy? Objective or subjective?
  • ...6 more annotations...
  • Are we more concerned with them becoming learners or learned?
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Which is rhizomatic practice?  Are any left out in this dichotomy?  Content or no content.
  • Are teachers organizing the school experience or are students building it?
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Which is rhizomatic practice?  Are any left out in this dichotomy?  Dave or no Dave?
  • Do the technologies we give to kids transfer agency and increase freedom on the part of the student learner or do they just transfer our curriculum in digital form?
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Which is rhizomatic practice?  Are any left out in this dichotomy?  Old wine or old wine in new bottles or?
  • And, importantly, what does success look like, and how are they measured?
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Which is rhizomatic practice?  Are any left out in this dichotomy?  Count or no count or no account or ?
  • And these are important to ask and answer before we embark on any initiative that purports to “improve student learning.” 
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Answer these questions before you tell people to go on a rhizomatic snipe hunt?
  • not about doing things “better” but about looking at schools and classrooms and teachers fundamentally differently
    • Terry Elliott
       
      I believe that a radically different stance from a very different perch is necessary.

Enough About Getting Rid of 'dave': Exploring Spontaneity and the Metaphor of the Gardn... - 3 views

  • But I think that Dave has just shown us that it is possible in an online environment.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      I don't always feel that way.  Sometimes I feel it is a guiding hand, but after two of these rhizo things I am beginning to think of it as a shving hand in a cattle chute.  The chutes only appear down, but the binaries still suggest two paths:  objective/subjective, content/no content,  dave/no dave and whatever the hell the other one was.  This is not rhizomatic teaching.  
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Is it?
  • Dave has done a good job of modeling rhizomatic teaching
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Not really too sure about this. He creates a binary and expects us to reconcile it.  And then where does that takes us as far as a rhizomatic practice is concerned?  Not very far at all.  
    • Terry Elliott
       
      I think that Dave stages the even well, but does not follow through
  • the teacher is the gardener
    • Terry Elliott
       
      If Dave is the Gardener,then the way he weeds is to point to the weed and say, "Isn't that interesting?".  Irresponsible?  Unethical? Bait and switch?  Not sure.  Personally, I am much more drawn to Heraclitus and Voltaire. For the latter the world is in flux and idiosyncratic as can be and for the latter he has Candide say, "That is very well put, but we muct cultivate our garden."  We must be our own gardeners.

  • #rhizo15 needs Dave Cormier

  • I have some kind of sense for it
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Better off trusting this sense first and what the experts say a very distant fiftieth.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      And those experts include anyone giving unsolicited advice like me.

  • spontaneity
    • Terry Elliott
       
      Dunno, the videos seem pretty scripted to me.  He has an agenda and wants to get it out there.  The community has been guided by each week's prompts, using it as a jumping off point but not really going too far from fold.  I wanted to see much more rebellion and spontaneous, adhoc-osity.  I tried, but no one paid me any mind.  Par.
  • Of course it is the gardner who decides between the weeds and “flowers”, sets the parameters of the garden, and ultimately decides who lives and who dies – but that is my next blog post.
    • Terry Elliott
       
      I agree that the gardener controls but I think it is illusory.  Who plucks the gardener? Who tends the gardener? Who weeds the gardener?  The gardener lives in a larger system that subsumes the garden, a larger Garden.  The gardener thinks he is managing the complexity that is the garden.  Fools paradise for a sock puppet?

Dave who? - un content ed - 1 views

  • they should just come and watch and stop wasting my time with the idiotic managerialist systems
    • wayupnorth
       
      When I have time to report, it's because nothing is happening. When interesting learning events are clicking, it leaves little time to report it.
  • I find it easier to be kind and open hearted in class than at home sometimes
    • wayupnorth
       
      Yeah, what's with that anyhow? Do I assume family members "should know this already" just because they live with me? Been much more conscious of that since an adult learner overheard me "teach" my wife a missing computer skill with a note of impationce. Learner rebuked me with, "You don't talk to me that way when you explan something to me."
  •  
    Oh YES!
