    Course Management The Web 2.0 Way
  • 2. What is web 2.0 ?
  • 3. Active Learning & Constructivism
  • 4. Active Learning Paradigm
    Based on social constructionist pedagogy
    Active learning in a social context taking place in a learning environment with smart and interactive tools

  • 5. Constructivism vs. Constructionism
    From a constructivist point of view, people actively construct new knowledge as they interact with their environment.
    Constructionism asserts that learning is particularly effective when constructing something for others to experience. This can be anything from a spoken sentence or an internet posting, to more complex artifacts like a painting, a house or a software package.
  • 6. Constructionism
    For example
    you might read this page several times and still forget it by tomorrow
    but if you were to try and explain these ideas to someone else in your own words, or produce a slideshow that explained these concepts,
    then it's very likely you'd have a better understanding that is more integrated into your own ideas.
    This is why people take notes during lectures (even if they never read the notes again).
  • 7. Social Constructivism
     … extends constructivism into social settings, wherein groups construct knowledge for one another, collaboratively creating a small culture of shared artifacts with shared meanings.
    When one is immersed within a culture like this, one is learning all the time about how to be a part of that culture, on many levels.
  • 8. Course Management System
    Moodle

  • 11. Philosophy
    Focus on the experiences that would be best for learning from the learner's point of view
    Helps you realize how each participant in a course can be a teacher as well as a learner.
    Your job as a 'teacher' can change from being 'the source of knowledge' to being an influencer and role model of class culture.
    Moodle doesn't FORCE this style of behavior, but this is what the designers believe that it is best at supporting.

    Use sites builders like Wordpress, Wiki, Google Sites, etc…

    If you do not use Moodle and do not use Social Media and do not use site-builders
    Use EMAIL at least
    Other wise
