Terry Anderson’s keynote at Ed-Media 2007
Social learning 2.0 – keynote slides
I wonder how Terry Anderson actually defines affordances. The list he introduced seems a bit learning-environment property-centered rather than emergent in the activities. I would rather disagree of using the affordance term like this.Or, if to take a second thought web 2.0 is not only tools and in this case, we can see these affordances as part of the activity system affordances. Some of the affordance descriptions of Terry actually involve the verb for action and some properties and some actors..so in this sense maybe i could name them affordances.
Terry has previously written in his blog about Models of the many. In his keynote he elaborated this topic again.
Taxonomy of the many
leadership and organisation
cohorts and paced
rules and guidelines
access and privacy controls
focused and other time limited
may be blended F2F
Metaphor: virtual classroom
friends of friends
reputation and altruoism driven
emergent norms, structures
activity ebbs and flows
Metaphor: virtual community of practice
wisdom of crowds
Dron and Anderson 2007
Terry was also referring to Durkheim’s Collective consciousness: Collective representations exist outside of the individual consciousness
Interesting was that this keynote ideas reminded me the ideas that i developed some time in last autumn about knowledge that is interpersonal. On my thinking this understanding and acceptance of what kind of knowledge we as individuals, groups and networks and collectives obtain as part of learning is the key factor which brings forth the paradigm change in learning. Learning is too much considered as related with this individual knowledge. Isntead it should be directed towards obtaining and using this collective consciousness.
I would like to revise this model of knowledge in the light of the taxonomy that Anderson and Dron 2007 are suggesting.
