This webinar is Part 2 of a 2 Part series. Part 1 is New Learning Communities: A theoretical Framework by Holly Rae Bemis-Schurtz for the complete experience.

In this webinar, we explore the practical application of newly developing concepts such as elearning ecosystems and connectivism to online teaching and learning. Join me for a behind the scenes look at these concepts in action. Specific technologies with related strategies discussed include Skype, PBWorks, Screencast-o-matic, Voki, Viddler, Animoto, Moblying, Slideshare, and Delicious.

  • Principles of connectivism Learning and knowledge rests in diversity of opinions. Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources. Learning may reside in non-human appliances. Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning. Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill. Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities. Decision-making is itself a learning process. Choosing what to learn and the meaning of incoming information is seen through the lens of a shifting reality. While there is a right answer now, it may be wrong tomorrow due to alterations in the information climate affecting the decision. [3] [ edit ]
  • Applying the term of “ecosystem” is important, as it has been recently used in relation to information (Gore, 2008), the Internet and Web 2.0 (Johnson, 2005), and eLearning (Dillon & Hallet, 2001; Kumar, Groenboer, Chu, Jamieson-Noel, & Xin, 2007).

    • 8. Learning Ecosystem is:
      • A way to make sense out of the chaos!
      • “ A learning ecosystem is a framework for understanding new learning environments that incorporate a variety of tools (ie: course management systems, Web 2.0 applications) and multiple touch points (web, client, mobile) that aims to make transparent to the members of the learning community various channels (relationships, pathways, protocols) in support of learners (who learn in a variety of contexts ) as facilitated by a master learner  who models the strategies of how to use the channels.” Holly Rae Bemis-Schurtz
