  • MOOC - Invent Vs Innovate

    1. 1. Challenge:Level 1: Using ’4′ straight lines, connect all nine dots without breaking the line (i.e.lifting your pen off the paper).Level 2: Now using only ’3′ Lines , connect all nine dots without breaking the line. (Try tothink Out of the Box).
    2. 2. Challenge:Level 1: Using ’4′ straight lines, connect all nine dots without breaking the line (i.e.lifting your pen off the paper).Level 2: Now using only ’3′ Lines , connect all nine dots without breaking the line. (Try tothink Out of the Box).
    3. 3. What is inside the box foreducation?
    4. 4. The traditional classroom
    5. 5. The distance (e)learning classroom
    6. 6. The networked classroom
    7. 7. • Students into teachers• Homework into Classwork• Classwork into learning by self or network, guided or unguided• Hallways and Social spaces into Classrooms• Closed curriculum to open• Degrees to badges• Fixed learning periods to flexible learning time, anywhere• Fellow students into collaborators
    8. 8. The ??? classroom
    9. 9. What these are doing is thinking inside the box…Sage on the Stage Taking elementsContent is King an instructional process, led principally by a teacher, Under an institution, That operates as a closed factory like system …andProcess Based Changing around the elements or sequences To create variations …and Hyping it as the next BIG thingFactory Mode

    14. 14. IMHO, it is the wrong question to ask
    15. 15. We need to ask the question:Can we INVENT a new model ofeducation?
    16. 16. Is there another viewpoint?
    17. 17. Complexity in Systems
    18. 18. Biggest insightsRather than attempting to reduce a system, analytically, as the sum of its parts; lookat the system as a whole.E.g. Breaking a clock down into its parts, analyzing the parts can give us anunderstanding of how the clock works But can we understand cities from houses and roads, human bodies from organs and bones? Or can we understand learning from analyzing curriculum and experts?
    19. 19. Biggest insightsRather than attempting to design a predictable system of education, can we insteaddesign for a system that understands the complexity? Instead of saying curriculum + content + teaching technique + student profiling + degree = education, can we instead design ecologies that lead to outcomes commonly ascribed to a good education?

    21. 21. Connectivism
    22. 22. Learning is the process ofmaking connections
    23. 23. Knowledge is the network.
    24. 24. MOOCs are an invention. A new way of thinking. Incomparable.
    25. 25. A MOOC Is an open, autonomous, networked and distributed space for sense-making Is a space where teachers and learners re-invent their roles To teach is to Model and Demonstrate To learn is to Practice and Reflect Content is no longer king; the network is Learning is more a dance of conversation than a linearly predictable path
    26. 26. Contrary to false beliefs propagated by Coursera, EdX andthe rest of the xMOOCsMOOCs are nascentThey face many intellectual and logistic challenges in implementationThey are culturally uniqueThey are an anathema to closed loop structuresThey do not have developed supporting technology
    27. 27. However, the MOOC is anincredibly transformativeinvention
    28. 28. MOOC or MOOTMOOT: Do we invent or innovate?
