After a few months journey, the “Open Networked Learning” course has come to an end. It has been a really nice experience, which has enriched me with new knowledge from…
Another journey in the Lost Academics’ life is over, the journey of clearing ONL201. So how was it? Since we during the course talked a lot about emotions, I might as well use emotions to describe my journey through the course. And it turned out to be an emotional roller coaster, with a happy ending. Fortsätt läsa "Am I a better person?"
Emotions in education, is that really suitable? Well, it depends on what you mean with emotions. In daily life we might think of emotions as being happy, sad, in love or angry. That is, connected to a specific (strong) mood we are in. So how is this relevant in a learning context? To be ableFortsätt läsa "Getting all emotional…"
So I was really sad about the end of ONL 201 and I kind of down in the dumps, as you can see here <https://superjacared.wordpress.com/2020/05/13/the-end-of-something-good/&gt;. I just finished writing that, and, as it is supposed to be, I&#821...
Once I heard in a training session that an activity should be ended when it’s at its peak – this should allow for interest to remain high, prompting students to be willing to try the following activities. This I how I say good-bye to ONL 201 and my peers in Group 5: at the heightContinue reading "The end of something good"
In literature, a community of inquiry (CoI) is defined as a group of people who collaboratively engage in critical thinking to construct personal meaning and confirm understanding. Communities of inquiry…
In Touching Feeling, Eve Sedgwick (2003) drew on a material approach to performativity and included an affective dimension. For those unfamiliar with performativity theory, here’s a summary: when we use language, we do not mirror the truth, but we constitute it, challenge it or reproduce it in a complex tango of repetition and difference, likeContinue reading "Emotion and learning. Also cats."
I guess everybody has some kind of idea for what “openness” means, when we talk about it in daily life. But I’m pretty sure you will get the same number of explanations as the number of people you ask.  So what does it mean and especially, what does it mean in education? And is thereFortsätt läsa "Welcome in"
I know. You read the title and you can’t help wondering what do Money Heist – aka La Casa de Papel – and communities of learning have in common. The…
As expected from its title, this paper by Wenger tells the history of a concept, including its main criticisms. Wenger promises to resort to a group of authors coming from different traditions. whom he groups together as “social theory”. These authors include French philosopher Michel Foucault, French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, American social anthropologist Jean Lave,Continue reading "On “Communities of Practice and social learning systems: the career of a concept” (Wenger, 2010)."
Butcher et al. define open education as “an approach centred on students needs, located in multiple arenas of learning and that seeks to remove all unnecessary barriers to learning, while…
So I am taking part in this course called ONL, which is on digital literac[ies]. Right now we are discussing sharing and openness and a question which keeps coming back to me – and which has not emerged in the synchronous group meetings – is that of epistemology and ontology, or epistemontology. In short, epistemologyContinue reading "Epistemologies of Openness"
This blog post actually treats two topics. The first one evolves around identity and the difference between private and personal. The second topic is about digital literacy, which I compare to being fluent within a language and knowing its grammar. Anyway, it turns out the two topics are related in such a way that writing […]
