  2. 2. Emergent Learning Model OR Smart Mobs plus Everything is Miscellaneous means Here Comes Everybody
  3. 3. Emergent Learning Model Background; Learner-Generated Contexts Open Context Model of Learning Architectures of Participation Bologna Process Informal, Non-formal, Formal Learning Emergent Learning goes GLAM
  4. 4. Emergent Learning Model Definition; A context created by people interacting together with a common, self-defined or negotiated learning goal. The key aspect of Learner Generated Contexts is that they are generated through the enterprise of those who would previously have been consumers in a context created for them. (Wikipedia)
  5. 5. Emergent Learning Model LGC Origins; A Team who built a Facebook for earning in 2004 (before social network) Socially Inclusive; Community Development Model of Learning (Freire) Participant Design; Ecology of Resources Model of Learner (Vygotsky)
  6. 6. Emergent Learning Model Open Context Model of Learning; A Pedagogy for an Open World or “ Coincidence of Motivations leading to Agile Configurations ” Outlined by PAH Continuum; Pedagogy ; Subject Disciplines Andragogy ; Collaboration Heutagogy ; Playing with Form
  7. 7. Emergent Learning Model Pedagogy, Andragogy, Heutagogy Continuum Question; What? Why? Why Not? Knowledge Creation Process negotiation Subject Understanding Knowledge Production Context Epistemic Metacognitive Cognitive Cognition Level doctoral research adult education schools Education sector learner teacher/learner teacher Locus of Control Heutagogy Andragogy Pedagogy
  8. 8. Emergent Learning Model An Architecture of Participation Adaptive Institutions working across Collaborative Networks’ Beyond the Institution as Physical Location Beyond buildings as demarcation Communities of Interest & Practice becoming Landscapes of Interest and Networks of Practice
  9. 9. Emergent Learning Model OR Participative Education for a Participative Democracy
  10. 10. Emergent Learning Model Emergent Learning Model Designed to meet EU i2015 & i2020 Post-Bologna Process targets of Integrating; Informal, Non-formal & Formal Learning
  11. 11. Emergent Learning Model Rethinking Informal Learning (Libraries, Museums) Non-formal (Training, post-compulsory) Formal Learning (Institutions & Quals) As Social Processes (People) Content (Created & Consumed) Context (Quality Assurance)
  12. 12. Emergent Learning Model Rethinking Informal Learning Focus on the social process that support learning; i.e. People Not places or type or policy ownership or targets (DfES) “ Informal Learning is the social processes that support learning in any context ”
  13. 13. Emergent Learning Model Rethinking Non-formal Learning Focus on the content that supports learning (design for appropriation) OR The content-creation that reflects learning (Learner or User-generated) “ Non-formal Learning is Structured Learning resources without formal learning outcomes ”
  14. 14. Emergent Learning Model Rethinking Formal Learning Traditional focus on institutions with little concern on what happened within; concern with Estates Management OR “it’s where the money is” “ Formal Education (!) is the process of administering & quality assuring accreditation & qualification”
  15. 15. Emergent Learning Model Flow & Emergence Can we use this re-conceptualising to design for a flow of learning? Start with institution & impose processes OR Start with the social processes of learning & design for emergent behaviours
  16. 16. Emergent Learning Model Informal Learning Phase ; enabling models of learner-self-organisation that can be recognised post-hoc Non-formal Learning Phase ; Resources designed for learner-appropriation. Content-creation toolkits easily accessible and quality assured (templates? guides?) Formal Learning Phase ; support resource provision, mapping to accredited learning outcomes, quality assuring processes, linking to system needs ?GLAM; ‘participative curatorial strategies enabling self-organisation, collaboration and content-creation.
  17. 17. Emergent Learning Model Why does this matter to GLAM? 1) Rethinking Roles and Processes 2) Change Socio-Economic Context 21 st Century Evolving changes in the socio-technical context Web As Resource (New Literacies of Access) Web as Platform (Permanent Beta & new Content) Web as Location (Identities & New Contexts) OR It is where the students are
