Proposed Discussion Topics
1. Education research and the social web: what challenges do we face for education research in the networked world?
Marg : Background:
I'm currently enrolled in a Master of Education and I'm interested in the way research is conducted in the vocational education and training sectors, and more broadly education research. I'm curious about the ways in which research is conducted and how it will be influenced/impacted by the increasing use of social software tools like weblogs and wikis.
Following the work by
and others (e.g. Learnscope projects like
, which Alex knows all about!) shows there is great scope to re-engage educators in grassroots research, re-empowering teachers to read and write about their field of teaching, where they themselves are contributors, rather than "being researched on" by others.
Do democratic tools like weblogs and wikis present an opportunity to 'democratise' research in education and training?
Knowledge Tree: An eJournal of Learning Innovations
is a good example of engaging teachers to read and write about what they are doing, using a weblogging platform with podcasts, etc... is this the future for journals and research works?
- The always-on learning experience, dispelling the myth that mobile teachnologies are disruptive and using networked mobile digital architectures to effect change in static system of base elements and inflexible rules. Is it possible to have networked learning occur in an always-on classroom ? How does this threaten institutions and organisation policy ? Ways to make it work - manifesto - brainstorm.
Wrap up events
I sense that things will be winding down as the tour hits Wellington. It might provide a good opportunity to wrap up various elements of the tour and begin to present ways to distribute the experience to others beyond the experience itself.
Beer. Some yummy NZ Sav!
Any suggestions on some closing activities? E.G. Topics...Where to from here? Continuing the networks? etc?
