Dave Cormier discusses cMOOC and MultiMOOC, connectivism, and openness in learning

Venue

: Bb Collaborate / Elluminate, with thanks to http://learningtimes.org 

  • http://learningtimesevents.org/webheads/
  • Elluminate has been chosen over Hangout because there is a TILL Sunday Hangout event on ePortfolios at 15:00 that some MultiMOOC participants will be attending, and it will be easier to transition there from Elluminate rather than stopping one Hangout and joining another.

Dave talks here about his ideas on learning and differentiates the nature of what needs to be learned into David Snowden’s simple, complicated, complex, and chaotic.  cMOOCs he said were expecially good at promoting learning at the complex and chaotic levels.  Listen here and find out why.

On the agenda, 2 readings:

To this, Vance might add, for MultiMOOC participants: http://goodbyegutenberg.pbworks.com/w/page/61341848/Me-Portfolios_2013  

Hangouts are created on the fly, so their URLs are not generated until just before the event.  Normally they are shared within circles.

If Benjamin Stewart and/or Vance Stevens are sharing circles with you, there are two things you can try

  1. you can Skype vancestev for more information
  2.  Also Vance will likely still be in Elluminate http://learningtimesevents.org/webheads/ for the first 15 min of this event, with the recording off, and you can possibly find me there for text chat directions to the Hangout

 

If all else fails, try this next event
(looks like a GR8 DB8 but the Hangout will be interactive, whereas the following, though highly recommended, will be equally as entertaining as a recording) 

Sun, Jan 20, 2013 – 1500 GMT – IATEFL Webinar: ICT debate about IWBs

The great ICT Debate

IWBs: a fantastic teaching tool or non-interactive white elephant?
with Pete Sharma and Gavin Dudeney

Interactive whiteboards (IWBs) have been around for a long time now. Few technologies have attracted such controversy. For some, they are a powerful teaching aid, while for others they are nothing more than an expensive waste of space, hopefully soon to RIP. Join us for this fascinating debate on the merits and future of the interactive whiteboard!

Pete Sharma will be defending IWBs, and Gavin Dudeney will be opposing.

Regarding the recording, at the above link, there is the following notice
