    1. Social networked learning incomplex information environments George Siemens January 13, 2012 Presented to: American University Washington, D.C.
    2. The context of changeWhat are complex information environments?CoherenceArtifacts and collaborative sensemakingSocial networks
    3. Global messageHigher education is brokenIt risks losing relevanceScope of learning in HE is too narrow
    4. Universities as reluctant innovatorsFear of losing students to other online providers
    5. Allen, Seaman (2011)
    6. US taxpayer support of education (2004-2005):K-12: $536 billionHigher Ed: $373 billion http://www2.ed.gov/about/overview/fed/10facts/index.html
    7. Ed-tech startupsWith transformations already underway in news,music, videos/movies, startup gold rush nowturning focus to education
    8. OpennessOpen education resourcesOpen teachingOpen coursesOpen accreditation
    9. Open online courses
    10. “MIT will make the MITx open learning softwareavailable free of cost, so that others — whetherother universities or different educationalinstitutions, such as K-12 school systems — canleverage the same software for their onlineeducation offerings.” MIT (2011)
    11. Personalization and adaptive learning at a large scale
    12. Mobiles blurphysical/virtual worlds Jasleen Kaur, 2010
    13. The context of changeWhat are complex information environments?CoherenceArtifacts and collaborative sensemakingSocial networks
    14. Complexity(dynamicconnectedness)of knowledgeand knowledgespaces Barry Kade, 2009
    15. Education systems track thearchitecture of information of an era
    16. To understand what tomorrow’s education system will look like, wehave to understand the architecture of information today: how is it created how is it shared how is it iterated
    17. Our education system faces information and conversations that are:OpenAccessibleDistributedScalableSocialNetworkedSelf-organizingDerivative and iterative improvementsAdaptiveGlobalMultimedia-based
    18. The context of changeWhat are complex information environments?CoherenceArtifacts and collaborative sensemakingSocial networks
    19. Information fragmentationproduces loss of coherence
    20. Existing coherence forming systemsBooksNewspapersTV news programsMagazinesCoursesPrograms(anything that is structured and that the end usercan’t speak into and alter)
    21. Structures formed in advance versus structures that emerge and are created by individuals
    22. Fragmentation of information requires that we weave together elements into some type of coherent frameworkYoutubeBlogsTwitterFacebookTEDtalksKahn AcademyOnline news/information sitesTraditional coherence frameworksBlogsTraining and developmentClient feedback
    23. The context of changeWhat are complex information environments?CoherenceArtifacts and collaborative sensemakingSocial networks
    24. Networked informationdoesn’t have a centre
    25. So we (socially) create temporary centres:
    26. Temporary Centres
    27. Artifacts re-center the learning conversation
    28. Sharingpersonalsensemakingartifacts
    29. Image of course structure created by course participant http://x28newblog.blog.uni-heidelberg.de/2008/09/06/cck08-first-impressions/
    30. The context of changeWhat are complex information environments?CoherenceArtifacts and collaborative sensemakingSocial networks
    31. Wellman (2002)
    32. Social and academic connection to theuniversity Boyer (1987), Tinto (1993)Psychological sense of community:“Acknowledged interdependence” Sarason (1974)
    33. Place without space Negroponte (1995)
    34. Current generation of learning toolsmirror a priori content and planned conversations
    35. Next generation tools will mirror the information, power relationships, and fluid social structure of networks
    36. Reeds LawUtility of a (social) network scales exponentiallywith the overall size of a networkWhen a network is large enough, sub-groupsand individual-controlled formations emerge
    37. What are the principles that influence education in open settings and social networks?Learner autonomySelf-organizationTransparent learning=teachingParticipatory pedagogySensemaking artifactsShareable learning paths
    38. Network opportunitiesandfrictionless sharing inhigher education
    39. Giving individuals control of information filters and structurei.e. if structure doesn’t exist a priori, learners need tools to create and share structure
