In this presentation I outline the work done presenting connectivist style courses over the last two years, demonstrate the course screen, demonstrate the use of the gRSShopper backend to create a newsletter, and talk about the theory of distributed learning underlying the design. SNB's Stephen Dixon introduces the session and also, after the talk, described how such a system could be used to support communication and learning in government applications. The audio also include a Skype conversation with Jay Nath - http://www.jaynath.com/ - Director of Innovation from the City of San Francisco.

    • The MOOC

  • 13. gRSShopper
    • A tool for learning networks
    • It functions as a node
    • Not as part of a mass

  • 14.
    • We are still in a world of mass, of masses of people, votes, ideas
    • These are the properties of the individual, applied to the whole
    • But the knowledge of a whole doesn’t lie in the parts – it lies in how these parts are organized.

  • 15. Organization
    • We’re trying to understand society by collecting individuals
    • But a sand castle isn’t just a pile of sand

  • 16. Connectivism
    • Knowledge is distributed across a network of connections
    • Learning is the ability to traverse and grow those networks
    http://www.downes.ca/post/38653
  • 17. A connectivist course does not consist of a single identifiable group of people stepping through the same activity.
  • 18. Engagement and Empowerment
    • There is no curriculum, no body of knowledge - McGuffin
    • The product of learning is the learner
