continued from previous post:
What does each project think they can get out of this workshop?
What are the models of learning?
What do we mean by communities? What about collaborations?
In terms of technology, what are the experiences we have in terms of using different tools? How can we pull this knowledge together?
How can we use tools to better communicate and support communities?
How to explore ways of communication between OU existing projects?
What are the dimensions of formal and informal learning within our projects?
In terms of the design of materials, are there any approaches that would help us achieve what we want?
How can we draw on the visual elements of design? And representations in various ways?
Creative thinking and creative learning: how could people make the best of the opportunities that they are given?
Social technologies allow for creativity: what is the effect of this creative on the learning?
How can we build more authentic assessment drawing on users’ personal experiences?
Boundaries: how to manage our identity in social networking spaces?
How can we explore new ways of collaborating between the projects?
3 main themes: communities/collaboration, design/learning, technologies (formal &informal learning)
4 Models: models of learning: models of communities; models of technologies; models of design
Big question: How to explore ways of communication between OU existing projects?
We are now being divided into 4 groups, each group being a gatekeeper of each of the themes above. Our aim is to create a representation of how each of the 7 projects discussed today tackle the models above.
