For decades, students have been stuck in classrooms, behind desks, being told how and what to learn. For a time, when students were expected to become widgets for the vast machine of industry, this model of education was highly effective. However, we have now entered a new age: an age where thinking is more important than knowing, where thoughts out-do the facts. Borders are melting away; project teams collaborate across the globe and intelligence is being continually redefined. The world’s information is at our fingertips and anybody can publish their thoughts for virtually no cost.
Explaining RSS is as difficualt as explaining what a wiki can do. I still know a lot of people who’re still working without RSS. Another CommonCraft Video shows how and why one could work with RSS, but see yourself.
The past four days I participated in the third international Seminar of ePedagogy Design – Visual Knowledge Building. It was held in Hamburg for the first time and I had been in the group of students who where planning it. (Hey folks it was nice to work with you ;-))
Antti, one of the finnish students stayed at my place and together with him and all the other epedagogy Students I had a great time.
One purpose of this meeting was to form new groups for the upcoming semester-project. Together with Owen and Alex and
may be hopefully more people I will work on a wiki concerning ePedagogy. There had been taken been a lot of photos which can be found at flickr.
The documentation of the seminar is available at the Me/We in ePedaogy Design Blog.
Regarding to our trip to the Dialoge in the Dark and the included Boat-Trip and some requests of our guide “Please make a snake” I found this video.
