Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Education is an idea/information-based process. In 2004, I tried to respond to the network/digitization alpha trend by describing the new actions and experiences that were available to learners: Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age. Details regarding cognitive processes, teacher actions, learner mindsets, design models, and social interaction remain rudimentary. Digitization is deceptive in that the deep impact isn’t readily observable.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

For example, the blogosphere (remember when that was word?) At the turn of the millennium there was no MySpace (2003) and no Facebook (2004). Amateurs could not produce material as good as professionals because professionals have gone through some controlled process to gain that status. At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,”

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004. It was intended very deliberately to be an example of the theory we had formed over the previous four years, and not simply a place to talk about it. Sometimes this is necessary, if for example you are creating a MOOC in a new subject area or new language. Take transportation, for example. It’s a two-step process.

Critical Thinking and Knowledge Domains

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

That is to say, critical reading is not only a mechanism for study and representation (for example, 'close reading') but also a mechanism for drawing inferences and correcting errors. For example: Laser test on mars is called as a chemical test. For just a few examples: Amemic, Joel H. Journal of Developmental Education, v28 n2 p36-37 Win 2004. It seems a result of copy-past accidents, as a good example of self-critical manners. For example, evidence. -

Knowledge as Recognition

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The idea, for example, of knowledge as ''justified true belief'' dates back to Plato, who in Theaetetus argued that having a ''true opinion'' about something is insufficient to say that we know about something. A child, for example, can learn a language even though not explicitly instructed. One major stance is called ''realism'' - this is the idea that we can know that there is a real world, and that science is the process of studying that world.

To offer a simple example: an important part of reflection is the capacity to perform and then discuss performance with others.

Where the Silicon Meets the Road

One of the best books about technology and its impact written in recent years is The New Division of Labor , by Frank Levy and Richard Murnane , which came out in 2004. One of the main examples used is piloting a bakery truck through a left turn in traffic. The authors contrast the task of vacuuming a room, which by 2004 had been competently automated by the Roomba robot, with driving the truck: The Roomba’s software exploits the common features shared by most rooms.

Bandwidth is in the process of becoming ubiquitous, and though we may complain about the price, it is already, relatively speaking, cheap. Despite set-backs – for example, the lobbies by private corporations to prevent the deployment of municipal Wi-Fi – it is not unreasonable to expect that inexpensive wireless broadband will be ubiquitous in most populated areas. Processing Computers have as well become more reliable.

Reinventing Relationships

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Forty years ago, for example, the computer industry consisted primarily of expensive mainframes and supercomputers that only larger institutions could afford to buy and operate. IBM is not a consumer oriented company, especially since it sold its personal computer business to Lenovo in 2004. Facebook , which was only started in 2004, already has over 500 million active users. Companies had to learn that it was not enough to deploy IT to automate existing processes.

Identifying a collaboration platform

Harold Jarche

Here are some examples: Use blogs to replace group e-mails so that information can be updated on a given subject/topic. The primary function of learning professionals within such a collaborative work model is to connect and communicate, based on three core processes: Facilitate collaborative work and learning amongst workers, especially as peers. Work with management to fund and develop better tools and processes for workers.
