Week 4 in

Multiliteracies for Social Networking and

Collaborative Learning Environments

 

CLUSTERING in the Multiliteracies course

February 4-10, 2013

 

Theme: Many literacies: A pedagogical lens

 

Web 2.0 tools can be used within an e-learning framework. combining face-to-face and mobile learning. Students can use different frameworks, but they can coordinate their online experiences through ePortfolios or personal learning environments (PLEs). Teachers are better placed to coach students in the many literacies they will need to make sense of and participate in the new digital culture. This week, participants are encouraged to explore the flexibility of Web 2.0 tools, develop their personal distributed learning networks, and consider how they can expand their personal learning record from just blogging to documenting their progress in an ePortfolio.

 

How to succeed in a MOOC (on any scale) depends on these 5 steps
Dave Cormier describes what we're doing now and throughout the session as:  

Orient, Declare, Network, Cluster, Focus

 

George Siemens has an easily approachable posting on these 5 steps, directed at newbies, called

How to participate in an open onlline course, in Rather Random, Sept 12, 2011, available:

"The first few weeks of an open online course are the most disorienting. As a learner, you approach the course with expectations that have been defined by previous learning experiences. You look for readings, you look for the discussion space, and you look to the instructor to detail the content that you need to learn and how you will be evaluated. Let go of those expectations. An open online course is quite different. You create your own spaces of interaction ..." in a process he calls 'wayfinding'.

 

Vance conducted an online discussion of this concept on January 16, 2011 -

One way to focus is to do so in an online portal - here we call that ePortfolio
But YOU can focus in any manner of your choosing and call THAT (whatever it is) ePortfolio

 

According to Dave ... http://youtu.be/bWKdhzSAAG0 

 

 

This multiliteracies session might help you achieve that focus and direct it at some collection of artifacts online which you can assemble or aggregate in a set of pointers which we call "ePortfolio"

Content Suggestions

 

 

Mark Pegrum recorded an intriguing rundown of his current thinking on multiliteracies here:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/14223834/Digital%20Lit%20Pegrum%20%282010%29.m4v 

 

Here, Mark arrays a spectrum of literacy skills into four "literacy groups"

 

  1. Language literacies
  2. Information literacies
  3. Connection literacies
    1. e.g. Participatory literacies (potentially "dangerous" - why? examples?
  4. Remix literacies

 

There's more on these literacy groups here: http://e-language.wikispaces.com/mr3
