When talking about collaborative learning and communities I just cannot think of any better examples than team sports. In addition, singing in a choir or playing some instrument in an orchestra or a band are alike to playing team sports because you have a group of people who are complementing each other. I have hadContinue reading “Learning together – for real?”
During the two weeks of topic 2: Open Learning – Sharing and Openness, my group and I have had interesting discussions about the possibilities and dangers with open resources. Most of us believe that openness is very positive, as you can take part of many kinds of different open resources; education, articles, books, illustrations, codes … Continue reading Obstacles and possibilities with open learning →
Openness. Open learning is something not foreign to me. Having been in education for many years, I’ve benefited from open learning thanks to the free online resources available within my fingertips. There is a myriad of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC’s) on the web, and only my circadian rhythm seems to be the physical limitContinue reading “Am I Really Ready For Open Learning?”
The past few weeks have been a roller-coaster ride for me in terms of learning. I’m on a high when I am able to catch-up with the new online platforms that are shared in our ONL group. It’s such a joy when you learn new things, in this case, new online tools that I’ve neverContinue reading “Digital Literacy, anyone?”

At work I am online almost all the time, using different … Continue reading Changing perspective on online participation →
That clip is nearly 10 years old, we should remember, what he is talking about: Open means sharing and being generous. I like that?I laughed at that line from the TED-Talk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rb0syrgsH6M) from David Wiley.Regarding Reflec…
During this week’s ONL scenario, we were given the time to think about student engagement in the online classroom. I used to think somewhat naively that engaging a student online could not be all that different than engaging a student in the classroom. This way of thinking, I realized quickly, is part of the problem. … Continue reading “Student Engagement in Online Classrooms”
