“Today, the duality of conceptual (new models of education, advancement of social learning theory) and technological (elearning, mobile devices, learning networks) revolutions offers the prospect of transformative change in teaching and learning” – George Siemens
Luckily for every educator currently wrestling with integrating digital technology into the learning we provide, elucidator of Connectivism, George Seimens, has created a wiki based off his new book, ‘The handbook of emerging technologies for learning’ (web address for wiki: http://bit.ly/RVuv3), that looks at how we all can cope and thrive as we seek to teach in the middle of such transformative times.
This idea of having a wiki to accompany the book means it won’t date so fast, plus as Monty Python have found, making some of your content available on the web generally increases sales (their DVD sales rose by 500% when they released free content on youtube recently) !
Beyond this though, the collaborative nature of a wiki is really what Connectivism and much of Siemens work is really about – so kudos George for practicing what you preach and thanks for the great site! There is a PDF version that can be downloaded also – head over and enjoy!
