Beyond Borders: Global Learning in a Networked World Stephen Downes Yerevan, Armenia November 2, 2014

Слайд 1

Beyond Borders… We speak many different languages This is both the challenge and the opportunity

Слайд 2

The MOOC Revolution http://mfeldstein.com/mooc-history-presented-aacn13-conference/

Слайд 3

What does it mean?

Слайд 4

The point of the MOOC is to be open But that means more than just free stuff, and more than just online videos

Слайд 5

It’s a way of thinking, a way of relating to the world

Слайд 6

It’s a way of creating harmony through diversity When each of us speaks a different language we all have something unique to say

Слайд 7

Open learning… Open University opens in 1971 Athabasca University (1970/72) Indira Gandhi National Open University (1985)

The OERu Logic Model Taylor, J.C. 2007. Open courseware futures: Creating a parallel universe. e-Journal of Instructional Science and Technology (e-JIST), Vol 10, No. 1. Online: http://www.ascilite.org.au/ajet/e-jist/docs/vol10_no1/papers/full_papers/taylorj.htm

Слайд 11

Criticism of the Logic Model Traditional Curricular based approach a focus on articulation & credit transfer closed federation of traditional institutes Tight link to traditional credentials

Слайд 12

It’s open delivery, but it’s not open learning… Friere: it’s the banking method of education

Слайд 13

Open versus closed delivery Learning objectives concrete and stated Learning Objectives vs. unstated and multiple objectives Organization of subject matter knowledge of vs knowledge about linear organization vs knowledge community

Слайд 14

Open versus closed assessment Subject and content-focused assessment, vs. performance-based and networked-based Assessment against external criteria vs. self-assessment Assessment by-instructor vs. 3rd-party assessment

Слайд 15

Free Learning Connectivist, or network, learning Network design principles: distributed, disintermediated, dynamic Design based on the ‘semantic principle’

Слайд 16

Learning is a matter of personal growth, not an accumulation of facts

Слайд 17

Connectivist Learning Design A non-curricular based approach course content is the ‘McGuffin’ learning takes places through interaction and creativity

Слайд 18

But… why It’s a formal recognition that people have different destinations, different tastes Based on an understanding that knowledge varies according to these Expresses the principle that networks – communities – are stronger with multiple diverse perspectives Knowledge learned is better – indeed, known

Слайд 19

In diversity, harmony and growth

A Map of the Community Connectivism: A Theory of Personal Learning Stephen Downes, December 3, 2008, Educational Development Centre, Ottawa http://www.downes.ca/presentation/208

Слайд 21

Our MOOC Model MOOC: Massive Open Online Course There is no central core feature – no core content, group, etc Course design is a network, or a map, or a community Resources are distributed, and aggregated Participants are encouraged to create their own resources, communities, groups

Слайд 29

Transforming the system

Слайд 30

New cultures of learning

Слайд 31

Autonomy Freedom as the factors affecting mental states (empirical, cognitive, psychological)

Слайд 32

Freedom as the capacity to act on mental states (physical, social, structural, resources)

Слайд 33

Scope and range of autonomous behaviour (expression, association, selection, method)

Слайд 34

Diversity Composition - many types of entities Intention (of goals, desires (cf JS Mill)) Perspective (uniqueness of point of view, language)

Слайд 35

Mathematics of diversity (multiple inputs produce mesh networks) http://lemire.me/fr/documents/publications/DiversityTechReport_October2008.pdf Putnam, Florida, and the rest of it Homophily and associationism http://profesorbaker.wordpress.com/2011/01/30/homophily-and-heterophily-what-fires-together-wires-together-cck11/

Слайд 36

Openness Open education, yes Open content, teaching, assessment Stages of openness and terminal path

Слайд 37

Open networks (clustering instead of grouping) Flow (input, output, feedback, plasticity) Open Educational Resources as the medium of communication

Слайд 38

Interactivity Influence vs emergence (thought-bubbles – “we perceive wholes where there are only holes”) http://www.downes.ca/post/55001 http://connect.downes.ca/post/44222

Слайд 39

Knowledge as pattern recognition Ontological (real) vs perceptual (recognized)

Слайд 40

Critical Literacies Understanding how we use artifacts to communicate in online and other learning networks http://www.downes.ca/presentation/232

Слайд 41

New Roles for Government Communications and Education Infrastructure Support for Open Educational Resources Support for Free Learning Management of assessments and credentialing

Слайд 42

The Digital Infrastructure Public high-speed backbone networks used not only for education but for other public services: police, fire and emergency, hospital, municipalities, etc. Local Access eg. Community Access Points Legal Framework policy on digital rights and copyright net neutrality and similar regulations

Слайд 43

A Note on Sustainability Whatever we really want is sustainable Like, say, highways and roads

Слайд 44

Sustaining Infrastructure Support for existing programs and services cost reductions in communications overhead improved efficiency of public service delivery Overhead on entertainment and commercial infrastructure similar to broadcast ‘CanCon’ requirements

Слайд 45

Open Educational Resources Traditional Resources Already developed and paid for by government Open access initiatives Public Policy Resources design to serve a public end or objective focus on basic literacies & community empowerment

Слайд 46

Sustaining OERs Redirection of existing resource allocations eg. OA mandates for grants and programs community outreach for existing agencies eg, NASA Support for community-based OER process integration of OER development and use within publicly supported curricula use of OERs in public services and programs - Stephen Downes, Models for sustainable Open Educational Rsources, ijklo.org/Volume3/IJKLOv3p029-044Downes.pdf http://www.downes.ca/presentation/76 - OER Help with Keynote Slides, OER-Forum http://lists.esn.org.za/pipermail/oer-forum/2011-October/thread.html

Слайд 47

Software and Service Support Software and environment support eg. Public Knowledge Project, Open Journal Systems, Moodle, et Service networks and support JISC / CETIS, EdNA, etc. Common Services - eFramework

Слайд 48

Sustaining Support Systems Development and systems research support Public adoption of open licensing FLOSS GNU/GPL, BSD, etc Creative Commons directs resources toward multi-sector development Community service requirement for commercially sourced software

Слайд 49

Assessment and Credentialing Support for Personal Learning provision of personal learning environments and frameworks promote lifelong learning link to skills database, corporate training registries direct support for employment and funding personal portfolios and credential banks voluntary, self-managed optional identity frameworks

Слайд 51

New Models for Schools

Слайд 52

New Roles for Research

Слайд 53

Community = Interactions Not simply ‘spreading the word’ Not ‘amplification’ But rather, the creation of our own society, together emergent from the free actions of each of us not based on the ideas of one (or a small number) of individuals

Слайд 54

Open communities speak many languages
