Live blog post, 3pm
continued form previous post:
1) Models of technology:
All projects use a pool of technologies: social networking (e.g. Facebook, Ning, Cloudworks), repositories (OpenLearn, slideshare, flickr), mapping software (e.g. Compendium, Cohere).
2) Models of learning:
Common to all projects: an attempt to blend formal and informal learning;
Discussed: the individual and social dimension; structure and unstructured materials.
3) Models of community:
Various foci: content, social interactions etc. How do these things characterize different types of interactions between learners, how does leadership happen in these spaces?
Common to the projects: personalisation, content-focus, forums, openness. The concept of the collective, learning design (as a community)
4) Models of design:
Different models of design and how these projects can be placed in these models:
4 types of design model:
1) configuration and re-configuration design (creating new patterns from existing ones) LDI, SocialLearn, OpenLearn
2) Inspirational design (Creativity): OLnet, VirtualMphil
3) Effective design (for particular requirements): VirtualMphil, TERGU, Atelier-D
4) Collaborative design & Cooperative design (teams of people doing things): OLnet, Atelier-D
We will continue the conversation at Ning/Cloudworks. Cloudworks is open to the public view. Photos of the day are available at OLnetChannel on Flickr.
