    • Learning 2.0 in a Military Context Steve Wheeler University of Plymouth
      • What is Learning 2.0?
      • How does it fit into a military training context?

    • Pedagogy Leading but not directing Facilitation but not instruction Socratic © Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009
    • Construction © Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009 In social contructionism groups construct knowledge for one another, collaboratively creating a small culture of shared artefacts with shared meanings. When one is immersed within a culture of this sort, one is learning all the time about how to be a part of that culture on many levels. Source: Wikipedia
    • Connection © Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009 In connectivism, learning involves creating connections and developing a network . It is a theory for the digital age drawing upon chaos, emergent properties, and self organised learning. (It’s not what you know but who you know) Source: Wikipedia
    • Rhizomatic Learning
      • “ A rhizomatic plant has no centre and no defined boundary; rather, it is made up of a number of semi-independent nodes , each of which is capable of growing and spreading on its own, bounded only by the limits of its habitat.”
      © Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2008 Source: Cormier, D. (2008) http://davecormier.com/edblog/
    • Rhizomatic Learning
      • “ “ In the rhizomatic view, knowledge can only be negotiated, [and is] a personal knowledge-creation process with mutable goals and constantly negotiated premises.”
      Source: Cormier, D. (2008) http://davecormier.com/edblog/ © Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2008

    • ... and it’s self organised
      • We cannot ‘manage’ self-organised learning for our students.
      • We can only create conducive environments within which students will organise their own learning.
