I quite enjoyed this video presentation by Professor Goldberg
My main take away are:
1. QUESTION ASSUMPTIONS
2. WHEN IN DOUBT, IMPROVISE
3. WHEN YOUR PATH IS BLOCKED, PIVOT
4. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE.
I will focus on assumptions in this first reflective post.
This is resonating as I have been reflecting on the assumptions of all Learning and Education Theories based on Assumptions Theory, and some related posts reflecting on the assumptions behind.
Such assumptions are best illustrated through an examination of the rhetoric and reality.
Siemens et. al. in his Handbook of emerging technologies for learning discusses the growing points of tension along:
8. Hierarchy/Network and Command/Foster
That is a very useful critique on what the challenges we are facing. The questions that could emerge from such critique are the assumptions behind each of the tension points.
What questions would we need to raise to unfold the dichotomy of each of these assumptions or findings?
What assumptions have we made relating to the learning from technology?
