Guesting with Connectivism & Connective Knowledge

ConnectToday I am a guest conversationalist (??) in the Connectivism & Connective Knowledge course run by Stephen Downes and George Siemens. This is the course I was hoping to participate in, but the flurry of travel killed that idea. We had the first session this morning, and we’ll have another later today. The details:

You won’t want to miss the online sessions this week. Nancy White is our scheduled guest. We have two Elluminate discussions (both sessions can be accessed via this link): 11 am CST (see time zone conversions) and 7 pm CST (see time zone conversions).

Christy Tucker took some great notes, and the recording will be up later. Thanks, Christy. I agree that the brainstorming at the end was really good. I am kicking myself for not saving a set of the annotated slides, which included the brainstorm. Stephen, are they available? In the meantime, here are the unannotated slides plus the chat. (Connectivism Chat #1) As I mentioned at the end of the hour, there were TONS of rich, un-mined veins in the chat.

The chairs Christy talks about are on the first slide. After everyone was in, they all had names under them, pictures of coffee and food and all sorts of comments. It was a very convivial group!

  2. Hi Nancy!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog.
    The link to “The art of Hosting” took me to beautiful and great resources, thanks for sharing. You are right, we need to know how to make irresistible invitations.

    The work I don online is charity work, I’m trying to seed change, so far I’m on my own but time will bring along collaborators on this journey.
    I was very pleased to have managed to be at your second elluminate session, I could almost see you, I felt you so close. I was a bit surprised when several times I posted something in the chat room reflecting your thoughts and you took your own thoughts from there to continue.

    Unfortunately right now I do lot of Community work and don’t have a sponsor to join the training suggested. I would have loved it. Maybe in another time.

    To have meet you in this connectivism adventure is one of the best thigs that happened to me.

    Receive a big hug from Mexico.

  3. After listening to the recordings on change, I found the session pretty interactive and intersting. I could sense your wonderful attributes: listens attentively, speaks in a humble manner, and shows empathy towards others’ views and responses.
    For me, a great learning session that inspires change – in a practical way.

    Many thanks.
