Researching open online courses

George Siemens

Over the last decade, I’ve extolled the value of social/technological networks as a means of extending learning opportunities. Social media in particular has collapsed the barriers between students and teachers. One area that I haven’t devoted much attention to is that of distributed online research networks. What are the habits and patterns of learner self-organization in open online courses?

Social Media Strategy Planning & Measurement – What’s Working? With social media, however, strategy is a compass, not a map, because it is a fast changing territory. Social media, however, is like a river you swim in.

Determinism, Best Practice, and the ‘Training Solution’

If a chemical engineer is looking to design a new process or parameters for distillation in a chemical plant she may be able to identify the volumes and sequences that produce the highest amount of pure distillate.

The future of higher education and other imponderables

George Siemens

The patterns of change in higher education are surprisingly similar and global. As a result, they have not developed systemic capacity to function in a digital networked age. Not all countries are adopting the aggressive UK model, but tuition patterns internationally (.pdf)

A Kind of Digital “Perfect Storm”

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

We seem to be heading toward a kind of digital perfect storm , where four major IT trends are each gathering speed while interacting with and amplifying each other: mobile devices, cloud computing, social networks and big data and analytics.

Look at user needs to design services. We should reinvent our spaces, from social spaces to high-tech knowledge commons. We generate lots of data, which allows us to be strategic, looking for patterns of use. We can do predictive analytics. [ She goes through some analytics with charts that I cannot capture. ]. Where are we in the economic, social, and cultural changes occurring now? Presence on social networks is very important.

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Social Media is one of the hallmarks of our digital age, enabling individuals and communities to create and share user-generated content. Starting about a decade ago with the rise of Web 2.0 , we have seen the explosive growth of social media technologies, - e.g., blogs, wikis and podcasts, - as well as platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube with hundreds of millions of users.

The Great Reset

John Hagel

The history of Great Resets He has just written a compelling new book, The Great Reset , that takes a longer term historical view of changing patterns in the settlement of people and places.   As it takes shape around new infrastructure and systems of transportation, it gives rise to new housing patterns, realigning where and how we live and work.  Here’s a paradox.    Silicon Valley’s success hinges on an explosive mix of people and place. 

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: The Power of Power Laws

John Hagel

Andriani and McKelvey focus on the desperate efforts of social “scientists” to fit social phenomena into Gaussian distributions. But it is not just social scientists who fall prey to this temptation to adopt a Gaussian view of the world. Here's to patterns that connect!

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Another key idea was the design of the gaming space itself.Early computer games (and many early arcade games) were designed likeprogrammed learning: they were like a flow chart, guiding you through a seriesof choices to a predetermined conclusion. During the development of this second generation we saw theconsolidation of computer-based software and content, and the commercializationof the network itself. You can begin to see a pattern developing here.

Beyond Institutions Personal Learning in a Networked World

The more we know, the more we can design policies to keep power in place. And now hardware in computers is being designed to detect your every keystroke, leading some Americans to be wary of Chinese-made computers, but the US manufacturers are probably doing it better.

Beyond Assessment ? Recognizing Achievement in a Networked World

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This talk is basically what he said, except he said it in the French way with complex theories, while I''m going to give it in the prickly, analytical, English kind of Canadian, dry presentation. It''s the basis for instructional design. You start with what you want them to learn, design an experience, cause them to learn it, build in some checks, and see that this has all happened in the end. The Achievement Standards Network is offering “open access to machine?readable

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To me, the theory is and always has been ‘learning networks’. This is a play on words: it is in part a theory about using networks to support learning, and in part a theory about how networks learn. It led me to propose content syndication networks in education, and to embrace social media in education. I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Technology is a second major factor contributing to growing complexity: “… creating a world that is massively interconnected, with broad-based convergence of systems of all kinds, both man-made systems like supply chains or cities; and natural systems like weather patterns or natural disasters. As a result, such systems are intrinsically emergent or unpredictable, and their design, analysis and management require major creativity and innovation.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Only after this, do we move into the idea, of learning design and pedagogy, which is drawn primarily from the field of distance learning, where courses are rounded up as packages, or what we might call program texts, designed to lead the student through a course of instruction. You begin to think in course packages complete with content, learning design, everything you need for an online course. It is, in many ways, an unbundling of this traditional course design.

The network does the following functions for peers: - switching - extenting the reach and domain of connections - multicast - one-to-many broadcast, forum for distribution - unification/collection - wikipedia, eBay - liquidity - the ability to adapt/change/adjust - group forming - can organize and contain What has worked? Another theme: the notion of social capital. But social capital continues to be one of those undefinable variables. Well, I'm designing for them, right?"

Consciousness

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It is not the result of some design, nor is it the result of some goal of objective. But "even the mental and cultural worlds were, it turns out, emergent results of such competences rather than consciously designing or designed realities."

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

leads to questions about designing learning for the future - reference to the old ''cranking ifo into students'' heads diagram - claims about the future: - work at own time, place, etc - computers will revolutionize learning - along came MOOCs - investment in MOOCs: $100M - will take time but will have a major impact - why things will change.

Once the experience is explicitly educational, it becomes about developing compartmentalized skills and loses its power to permeate the players behavior patterns and worldview. The challenge for any educational entity is how to harness social media learning.
