  • TED talk: Demonstration of Photosynth Image at top will link to Photosynth website Discussion question: How does Photosynth embody the four essential elements of a network (According to Downes) 1. Context (Group 1) 2. Salience (Group 2) 3. Emergence (Group 3) 4. Memory (Group 4)
  • Distributive knowledge: The the idea that knowledge is not located in any given place and therefore cannot be transferred or transacted by consists of a network of connections formed by experience and interactions with the knowing community. What does this mean? Knowledge is subsymbolic. Mere possessions of words does not mean that there is knowledge and possession of knowledge does not necessarily result in the possession of words? Do you agree with Downe’s ideas?
  • Intelligence is: Diverse Dynamic Distinct
  • Re-thinking Attention: always on generation. Constant partial attention. Re-thinking Space: different spaces allow for different types of interaction RE-thinking Identity: Are you your facebook page?
  • Show TED talk from Ken Robinson on the learning revolution. Question: What does his message have to do with learning communities. Ask students to find examples of web 2.0 technologies that would support collaboration.

  • Connectivism in Action: Photosynth
    • How does Photosynth embody the four essential elements of a network (Found in the article: Learning Networks and Connective Knowledge)
    • 1. Context (Group 1)
    • 2. Salience (Group 2)
    • 3. Emergence (Group 3)
    • 4. Memory (Group 4)
  • Learning Networks and Connective Knowledge
    • Based on a model of Distributive knowledge
        • The the idea that knowledge is not located in any given place and therefore cannot be transferred or transacted by consists of a network of connections formed by experience and interactions with the knowing community.
    • Requires varying levels of engagement :
        • Individual to content, Individual to individual, Individual to Interface, Individual to self
    • Understand that Knowledge is:
      • Sub-symbolic, Distributed, Interconnected, Personal & Emergen t
  • Knowledge Community: Characteristics
    • Focused on problems , not topics: knowledge is advanced through discussion and argumentation in the effort to understand concepts and resolve discrepancies.
    • Decentralized , open knowledge building, with a focus on collective knowledge : through constructive social interactions with others engaged in similar or related problems.
    • More knowledgeable members are engaged in the knowledge-building process, but do not delineate the limits of investigation.
    • Less knowledgeable members' participation is valued as it determines the gaps, inadequacies, difficulties in the knowledge being created that can demand a clarification of ideas by the 'experts'.
    • Engages a broader knowledge community than that involved in the current local problem, bringing in views from the outside.
    • Makes for a "second order environment" (one where the one's adaption to the environment changes the environment itself) where one's contributions can determine what contributions will follow , thus changing the direction of the discourse and the knowledge constructed.
  • Knowledge in a Knowledge Community? or Is knowledge a tree or a pile of leaves?
  • Why Knowledge Community? How does Ken Robinson’s message explain how Wiki’s support knowledge building?
  • Review
    • What is TPACK? Why is it relevant?
    • What are the principles of Connectivism ? Why is connectivism a learning theory for the Digital Age ?
    • What are the characteristics of a Learning Network? How does it support knowledge communities? Identify one example of a learning network
    (HINT: Use notes posted in Google Docs)
  • Knowledge Community = Concept Wiki = Technology Attention Space Identity Always on Constant-partial Variable Interaction Fragmented
  • Our knowledge Community: Course Wiki
    • How to find information (navigation)
    • Create a page (content creation)
    • Hyperlink (integration)
    • Commenting (Communication)
