Portrayal of Learning Outcomes (#CCK11)
swedinbalchik, Swedinbalchik's Blog, Apr 19, 2011
I feel excited about the new pedagogical ideas I have encountered during 'Connectivism and Connective Knowledge 2011'. I'm proud to say that the newsletter 'OLDaily – Online Learning Daily' and 'The Open World Learning Institute' linked to my attempt of vlog mash-up, from our initial Friday sessions in CCK11, called 'Connective Learning'. It was also [...] Tue, 19 Apr 2011 18:18:32 +0000 [Comment]

Week 12: Changing Views, Changing Systems (#CCK11)
swedinbalchik, Swedinbalchik's Blog, Apr 09, 2011
Week12 Insights: •When roles and interaction change we also need to investigate how the education system adapts to increasingly fluid knowledge (i.e. an instable flux of knowledge produced by the individual). Multiple perspectives, ongoing feedback and rating of resources replace singular views of pre-packed and hierarchical content. The participation in the learning process includes interpreting [...] Sat, 09 Apr 2011 15:30:42 +0000 [Comment]

Week11: Research & Analytics (#CCK11)
swedinbalchik, Swedinbalchik's Blog, Apr 08, 2011
Trough analytics we make sense of data and after a systematic investigation this will become research.

Week10: Net Pedagogy – The Role of the Educator (#CCK11)
swedinbalchik, Swedinbalchik's Blog, Apr 08, 2011
Week10 Insights: •If we move to a learning perspective based on forming networks and collaboration instead of managing information, we get several dichotomies related to the role of the educator. Conversation or Instruction, Influence or Control and Abundance or Scarcity are only some of them that comes to my mind. Terry Anderson describes "Three Generations [...] Fri, 08 Apr 2011 12:43:27 +0000 [Comment]

Week04: What Makes Connectivism Unique? (#CCK11)
swedinbalchik, Swedinbalchik's Blog » CCK11, Feb 21, 2011
Week04 Insights:I have tried to create compact statements based on ontological (identity/property) and epistemological (knowledge/learning) perceptions of different related learning theories. ·Social Constructivism – You relate parts of the subject matter to each other and comprehend the world by reinterpreting knowledge. ·Activity Theory – We search for reusable components and knowledge is mediated through participation [...] 2011-02-21T20:37:37 [Comment]

Week03: Connective Knowledge (#CCK11)
swedinbalchik, Swedinbalchik's Blog » CCK11, Feb 03, 2011
I’m still backtracking to the discussions from the first week of the course, but this post will soon be updated… While there are still many educators developing their Digital Literacy and trying to implement Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in their teaching methods, Jeff Utecht (2010) is already promoting the introduction of Networked Literacy:  Networked [...] 2011-02-03T13:58:02 [Comment]

Week02: Patterns of Connectivity (#CCK11)
swedinbalchik, Swedinbalchik's Blog » CCK11, Feb 03, 2011
I will soon publish a Video presentation where I investigate ‘Patterns of Connectivity’.  In physics we do X and get the predictable result Y, but neural network (and social network) theory is more like meteorology. You succeed based on modelling and simulation, pattern recognition and interpretation, projection and predicting uncertainty. I have studied Air Pollution through [...] 2011-01-31T19:16:21 [Comment]

Week01: Connectivism?(#CCK11)
swedinbalchik, Swedinbalchik's Blog » CCK11, Feb 03, 2011
“Extended SOLO-Taxonomy” is my first attempt to record a video presentation, so bear with me.  I’m not native English speaking and without transcripts, re-takes or rehersal terms like “points within concept” (=related aspects)  and “big information” (=large amount of relevant content) can be confusing.  Finally the course name is “Connectivism and Connective Knowledge 2011“, nothing else This diagram illustrates the two [...] 2011-01-26T19:26:12 [Comment]
