Presentation slides for the session at the ETUG 2010 Fall Workshop in New Westminster, British Columbia

Presenter: Stuart Berry, Camosun College

Description: This session will discuss the broader implications and issues of the use of social networking software within both formal and informal learning environments.

Two Examples of the use of the ELGG Social Software Environment to Support Learning

Part 1: Academic Blogging Circle
Glenn Groulx will showcase collaborative and cooperative blogging methods to facilitate discussion and build bridges between faculty, alumni, students, and administrators using the Academic Blogging Circle within an ELGG environment.

Part 2: Living Archives
Stuart Berry will discuss his doctoral research project with online students within the ELGG environment to facilitate student interaction, knowledge creation, and to encourage the use of an online archive to act as bridges between and among different cohorts of learners.

Two examples of the use of the ELGG

  1. 1. Two Examples of the Use of the ELGG Social Software Environment to Support Learning Enhancing Learning Environments: Making course archives available for current and future learning Stuart C Berry (Athabasca University Doctoral Candidate) School of Business Camosun College ETUG Fall Workshop 2010
  2. 2. Athabasca University’s ELGG Environment The Landing
  3. 3. Athabasca University’s ELGG Environment The Landing Access Controls… A sense of security and A sense of bounded openness
  4. 4. The Landing – A Research Environment The Use and Value of an Online Archive
  5. 5. The Landing – A Research Environment Three research areas: (Questions) 1. Supporting knowledge Creation 1. Examining the Value of the Archive 2. Potential Downsides to the Use of the Archive
  6. 6. The Landing – A Research Environment Existing Online Courses No Archive Each new course begins at same zero point
  7. 7. The Landing – A Research Environment Build and maintain an Archive Integrate the Archive into current and future course iterations An Archive is an organic, evolving, and integrated part of a course
  8. 8. The Landing Challenges as a Learning Environment LMS versus Social Networking Environment Bounded, contained environment Versus Open, connected network environment with limited boundaries and no real centre
  9. 9. The Landing Challenges as a Learning Environment New questions to consider
  10. 10. The Landing Challenges as a Learning Environment Are socially networked learning environments acceptable or suitable spaces from within which formal online learning can occur?
  11. 11. The Landing Challenges as a Learning Environment If more formal learning can effectively occur within these social networked environments then what can be done to structure socially networked learning environments such that they become suitable learning environments?
  12. 12. The Landing Challenges as a Learning Environment Or
  13. 13. The Landing Challenges as a Learning Environment Should we instead be seeking to enable learners to rethink and redirect their learning focus such that the attributes of networked learning spaces become the norm and are not morphed to match more traditional learning environments?
  14. 14. Social Networked Learning Environments Where Do We Go From Here?
  15. 15. Questions ??? Stuart C Berry, B.A., M.A., (Doctoral Candidate) School of Business Camosun College stuberry@shaw.ca http://faculty.camosun.ca/stuberry Thank You
