Networked Learning

Various authors, Website, May 18, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Papers from the Networked Learning Conference from early May are now online. There's a lot here, too much to do justice in one post, but I would like to point to the sociotechnical theories of learning technology symposium, as well as the problem-based learning symposium, each with several excellent papers. In the former, Frances Bell offers an interesting and engaging look at Connectivism from the perspective of Actor Network theory. As well, a paper challenging traditional group theorisation caught my eye; the author found "three different Group Developmental Models: a product-oriented model, a product-process oriented model and a process-oriented one." Finally, I would be remiss if I overlooked The Ideals and Reality of Participating in a MOOC by Jenny Mackness, Sui Fai John Mak and Roy Williams, which was excellent. The same three also authored Blogs and Forums as Communication and Learning Tools in a MOOC.
