Peeragogy and networked learning

  1. 1. PEERAGOGY AND NETWORKED LEARNING Michael Coghlan 26/11/12
  2. 2. Indicate with a tick which of the items below you use in your role as an educator
  3. 3. I would contend that the abundance of content andconnections is as fundamental shift in education asany we are likely to encounter, and there has, todate, been little attempt to really place this at thecentre of a model of teaching. (Martin Weller –referring to A Pedagogy of Abundance)
  4. 4. PEERAGOGY = PARAGOGYStems from a philosophy of abundance (Tim Longhurst) - of content and connections
  5. 5. SUBSCRIBING TO PEOPLE• “People don’t subscribe to magazines anymore. They subscribe to people” (15 yr old)• Subscribe: – RSS feeds (websites, blogs, podcasts) – Following people (Twitter) – Friending people (Facebook)
  6. 6. FILTERING AND CURATION• Clay Shirky: "Its not information overload. Its filter failure.”
  7. 7. DIGITAL CURATION • Curate via feeds, follows, friends, OR • Scoopit!, then • Bookmark (Delicious, Diigo)
  8. 8. NETWORKED LEARNING• Enormously successful model for professional development• BUT, does it translate to the ‘normal’ teaching context?• “...there has, to date, been little attempt to really place this at the centre of a model of teaching.” (Weller)
  9. 9. NETWORKED LEARNING• Assumes everyone in the network takes on role of educator and student• Everyone curates and shares content• Collaborative – Shared activities – Co-creation/curation of content – Peer review/assessment
  10. 10. NETWORKED LEARNING IS IMPORTANT:• Fosters an essential component of digital literacy• it is becoming a lifelong learning skill Courtesy of Ruth Geer
  11. 11. NETWORKED LEARNING IS HARD!• Requires advanced Internet skills• You need to manage multiple accounts• You have to work out who to follow!• Involves sharing and being open with and about what you know (against the culture/values of many)
  12. 12. DOUBTS/SUSPICION• Information generated and curated from networks is not from recognised authority/experts• Not officially sanctioned ie it isn’t in a textbook• It’s INFORMAL
  13. 13. POSITIVE NEGATIVE• Current • Tendency to want to know• Digital literacy/lifelong everything learning • The information flow never• You have a gang (network) stops to help you navigate, curate, • Can be distracting. and create content (Multitasking is inefficient.)• You’re never alone! • Information often comes in byte-sized grabs > lack of discourse of any substance • Everything you do is tracked and monitored (and probably sold to a third party for some commercial advantage.) So you need to be smart AND disciplined >>>>>
