Syndicated Education in Distributed Learning Environments
In education schools create coherence based on ‘Conceptual Orientation’ (i.e. sense making) illustrating how theories and knowledge are related. Following the emerging trend of Distributed Learning Environments used in Networked Learning, teachers also need to include ‘Spatial Orientation’ (i.e. way finding) to answer questions like: Where do I find useful Learning Resources (i.e. salience)? How are these resources interconnected (i.e. pattern recognition)? What is the underlying message (i.e. trajectory)?
In the previous module we used web tools for creating, delivering and managing Learning Resources [#CNT12]. During this course you will create, deliver and manage an educational event that aggregates the latest work from participants within the cohort into one location. This allows Peer-to-Peer (P2P) learning and keep the work they do in their own Personal Learning Environment (PLE). The experience from this course will turn into a multi-levelled badges program awarded from peer to peer evaluation.
