Knowledge maturing and learning

Published on

Presentation at the ICT Call 3 Information Day
Intelligent Content and Semantics, Digital Libraries and Technology-enhanced Learning meeting in London in January 2008.
The presentation starts out by looking at the profound effect of the present industrial revolution on all aspects of society including how we live, how we produce things, how we learning and how we develop and share knowledge. It goes on to examine how learning and knowledge development takes place in Small and Medium Enterprises through processes of social networking and in communities of practice.
The following section looks at different forms of learning and the move from knowledge transmission models to models of networked learning based on connectivism.
The final section of the presentation considers the implications for education and training systems and providers. It proposes a move towards personal learning environments (PLEs).

Knowledge maturing and learning

  1. 1. Graham Attwell Learning and Knowledge maturing
  2. 2. We are at present undergoing a deep and prolonged industrial revolution based on digital technologies
  3. 3. Changing the way we live, the way we produce things, the way we communicate, the way we learn
  4. 4. and the way we develop and share knowledge
  5. 12. Learning is a process of becoming rather than a process of acquiring Stephen Downes
  6. 13. Learning is a process of sense making and values To learn is to instantiate patterns of connectivity in the mind (in the neural net)
  7. 14. The Old Transmission Model
  8. 15. The way networks learn is the way people learn… <ul><li>they are both complex systems </li></ul><ul><li>the organization of each depends on connections </li></ul>Connectivism (George Siemens) Stephen Downes
  9. 16. <ul><li>Learner centered </li></ul>Learning is centered around the interests of the learner Learning is owned by the learner This implies learner choice of subjects, materials, learning styles The Concept Stephen Downes
  10. 17. <ul><li>Immersive learning </li></ul>Learning by doing Stephen Downes
  11. 18. <ul><li>Connected Learning </li></ul>The computer connects the student to the rest of the world Learning occurs through connections with other learners Learning is based on conversation and interaction Stephen Downes
  12. 20. The reaction of education systems and institutions to the rise of social networking has been at best bewilderment, at worst downright hostility
  13. 21. a refusal to engage in these issues risks school becoming increasingly irrelevant to the everyday lives of many young people
  14. 22. and particularly irrelevant to the ways in which they communicate and share knowledge
  15. 23. Web 2.0 allows young people to be active co-creators of knowledge Web 2.0 allows young people to be active co-creators of knowledge
  16. 24. We have to review the industrial schooling model including the organisation of institutions and pedagogy and curriculum
  17. 25. and, above all, systems of assessment which fail to support learning
  18. 26. Personal Learning Environments are based on the idea that learning will take place in different contexts and situations and will not be provided by a single learning provider
  19. 27. the idea of a Personal Learning Environment recognises that learning is continuing and seeks to provide tools to support that learning
  20. 28. Using whatever tools and devices which the learners choose
  21. 29. It also recognises the role of the individual in organising their own learning
  22. 30. PLEs can help in the recognition of informal learning
  23. 31. The promise of Personal Learning Environments could be to extend access to educational technology to everyone who wishes to organise their own learning.
  24. 32. the PLE will challenge the existing education systems and institutions
  25. 33. PLEs and the institution Scott Wilson
