Elearningpapers. Conectivismo: El estudiante en red. Wendy y Alex Drexler, inspirados por los vídeos de Lee LeFever y Common Craft [realmente más por el tono que por la técnica], crearon hace un par de años un vídeo para explicar, atendiendo a las bases del conectivismo, las habilidades que un/a estudiante del siglo XXI debería tener.
Wendy Drexler formó parte de uno de los primeros MOOC de Siemens y Downes, el CCK08 a finales de 2008, y tras su participación en el mismo decidió elaborar un vídeo sobre los nuevos aprendizajes en red. El protagonista del vídeo es un estudiante de secundaria que estudia sobre la psicología estadounidense. Este estudiante no tiene libro para seguir el curso y su profesora no hace uso de las clases magistrales, ya que es una defensora del conectivismo. LMS is no longer the centre of the universe. OK, so here’s the deal – if learning is work and work is learning, why is organizational learning controlled by a learning management systems (LMS) that isn’t connected to the work being done in the enterprise?
Learning is no longer what you do before you go to work, never having to learn anything else in order to do your job. In the 21st century networked economy, learning and working are becoming one. As Robert Kelley showed over a 20 year study of knowledge workers, we need to keep learning in order to get our jobs done – “What percentage of the knowledge you need to do your job is stored in your own mind?” In a networked economy, social learning is how we get things done. Training, based on solid documentation of processes and procedures, works well at lower levels of complexity and we can develop best practices.
Facebook vs The LMS: Can Someone. Here are some numbers from the Facebook press room: Wow.
The Importance of Elgg in the Future of Learning. When I survey the landscape of educational tools, I come to the following conclusion: Elgg is the most important tool, currently available, in shaping the future of learning.
(Disclaimer: I was on an advisory board for Elgg when it first started, though the board never really did much, but I mention it now so it looks like I might be cool). Why Elgg? I’ve used Elgg for various projects – for teaching at Red River College, for running a social network at Duke CE (both in 2005), and now with The Landing – an enterprise-level install at Athabascau University (initiated by Terry Anderson and Jon Dron). The tool has its bugs, but has developed substantially in the last few years. Learning or Management Systems? Jon Mott recently published an article in EDUCAUSE Quarterly on Envisioning the Post-LMS Era . Jim Groom captures the reactions of individuals who have been exploring the link between learning management systems and personal learning environments.
There is a sense – and I’ll admit I felt it as well in reading the article – that many long-time contributors to the discussion were not referenced in the article. In theory, the review process should draw attention to important omissions of literature. However, most reviewers would likely not see the spaces (blogs) where much of the conversation happens before it jumps into mainstream as good sources. I’ve posted below that I wrote while at University of Manitoba addressing the LMS/PLE issue. La enseñanza usando Redes Sociales y Tecnológicas. Traducción del original publicado en el 16/02/2010. The networked enterprise and learning support. Would you rather go to a doctor who is in the band-aid business or the healing business?
Prescribing training for all organizational learning is like handing out band-aids without a diagnosis. Training is often a solution in search of a problem. This becomes evident when ~80% of learning on the job is informal and less than 10% of the knowledge needed for work is in our heads. But how much organizational effort is put into training, above all else? If it’s more than 20% of the learning support budget then it’s probably being misspent. The Holy Trinity: Leadership Framework, Learning 2.0 & Enterpris. I find myself in the center of an intellectual tempest.
The traditional ‘learning’ folks are trying to sort out how to revolutionize the industry by augmenting their formal learning strategies to incorporate social media, social learning, social networking and the like. It’s a good thing to witness, but slow as molasses in some circles. The Human Resources and Organizational Development folks are mulling over their competencies, values, leadership development programs, amongst other elements trying to embed flatter, more connected ways of working. Also good to see, but at times I see these folks in other companies plodding along without involvement of the Learning side of the house, or the technology outfits. The technology groups (be it IT, Systems Analysts, ERP groups, etc.) are busy trying to synchronize existing investments with new instances of 2.0 collaboration technologies and platforms.
Learning it is getting a little too personal...just what I wante. Stephen Downes face to face is just Downes, but better.
I like very much when people do and are what they say, other way we are in lie-land and I hated there. Downes is just Downes, that is to say he is really what he talks about, that is pretty awesome and not so common: the expert as someone who is learning it is a rupture, a totally new way. The connectivist way! When to LMS. Dave Wilkins, who I admire, has taken up the argument for the LMS in a long post, after a suite of posts (including mine). I know Dave ‘gets’ the value of social learning, but also wants folks to recognize the current state of the LMS, where major players have augmented the core LMS functions with social tools, tool repositories, and more.
Without doing a point-by-point argument, since Dan Pontefract has eloquently done so, and also I agree with many of the points Dave makes. HootCourse and CloudCourse. Two interesting new items I came across today - they actually each deserve a posting on separate days, but I already have another one scheduled for tomorrow, so am going to put them into one posting here.
First, HootCourse. I came across this in a comment on one of my postings on the C4LPT Facebook page. Choosing the right social and collaborat. Yesterday I gave a short webinar to the Learning & Skills Group.
Don Taylor, Chairman, asked me to talk about how you choose a social and collaboration platform, as he thought this would be a topical discussion in the light of some people's concerns with the changes at Ning. So this webinar looked at 10 criteria for considering such a platform (and used Ning as my benchmark), then I gave a tour of 3 very different platforms, and finally compared them against the 10 criteria I had listed up front. The first question that was asked after the presentation was how it all fits together with other systems in the organisation, and in particular the LMS, but it also seemed clear to me that many participants were still focusing entirely on creating and managing e-courses , rather than thinking about how they could support learning in all forms that take place in the organisation.

Moodle 2.0 Preview 1 is now available! Our development work on Moodle 2.0 continues furiously towards a estimated release date of July 20, 2010 (about 10 weeks away). Today, however, we hit a very welcome milestone, Moodle 2.0 Preview 1. As a true open source project our Moodle development code is always available, of course.
This milestone just means that all planned features are mostly implemented (though still with many known bugs), and we feel comfortable inviting experienced Moodle users to start testing it and giving us feedback to polish it into our best release ever. Please see the Moodle 2.0 Preview 1 release notes for full information on how you can help and finally, thanks to the whole community for your support of Moodle and our goals of helping educators improve the quality of education around the world. Why bash the LMS? In response to a query about why someone would question the concept of the LMS, I penned the (slightly altered, for clarity) response that follows: What seems to me to be the need is to have a unified performer-facing environment. It should provide access to courses when those are relevant, resources/job aids, and eCommunity tools too. That’s what a full technology support environment should contain. eLearn: Opinions.
