Suggested themes for reflection in your learning blog:
3a) An occasion when real collaborative learning took place, that moved your own thinking forward
I love the concept of MOOC, but the ONL brought in PBL-groups where the participants got agency and took shared responsibility. I started to study Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) [Koschmann]. “CSCL locates learning in meaning negotiation carried out in the social world rather than in individuals’ heads” and I now finding out more about Reflective Learning.
3b) Your own Personal Learning Networks – how have they developed and how they could be taken further
I’ve been working on a Collaborative Open Online Course (=COOL course) for my upper-secondary students. It was missing the ownership and sharing between participants.
3c) Reflect on how you can use technologies to enable your own networks for learning processes
My “Moonshot project” is to create STEAM-resources in a repository for in-service teachers linked to “Edcamp Sweden”. I tried DS106 Assignment Bank (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. on my site Enriched Science Projects (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.
Definition: A moonshot, in a technology context, is an ambitious, exploratory and ground-breaking project undertaken without any expectation of near-term profitability or benefit and also, perhaps, without a full investigation of potential risks and benefits.
