In reading Stephen Downes lastest post on “Types of Knowledge and Connective Knowledge” I was inspired to try and represent the concepts visually. This is what I’ve come up with

x28newblog.wordpress.com/2008/09/06/cck08-first-impressions/

This is the kind of maps I make for myself, and I know that it is undigestible for others. I just wanted to show that I visualized something, not what I was drawing. And therefore I am very surprised that some people liked it.

Encontré este esquema que distingue entre fiabilidad y validez en un aula de la Erasmus Universiteit donde tenía que dar clase.

Conceptual relationships are fundamental to connective knowledge, and they appear in three different forms: visual (line on a topic map), verbal (hyperlink in a wiki or other hypertext), and virtual/ hidden (database-like relatedness to be selectively revealed).

Today's #ds106 Daily Create was the idea of my friend Ben, who loves the Daily Create. He wanted us to create a board game about ds106.

MOOCOPOLY is the game of teaching massively, openly online and includes the range of players from ds106, CCK08 to the Stanford trio, MITx, and more. Take your chance and many you will have community or not.

"Feel the beauty of a moment. Don't get stuck with it. Feel the next moment. - It can contain crucial things which focusing on the beauty could prevent you from seeing." - @ConnectIrmeli (June 2012)

 

Einstein said: There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle - but... don't innovations and making the invisible visible reside smashed, distributed and split in pieces in the gray areas - not either within seeing everything as fabulous or seeing nothing as fabulous...?! - When I started to practice mindfulness during last year - the instructors began by emphasizing the following:

 

1) See the beauty within this exact moment

2) Don't get stuck - the next moment already arrived

3) Remain breathing the energy the feeling of the beauty caused

4) Use the energy originating from the beauty for sensing the difficulties - utilize the energy rising from the beauty for not to get stuck with the difficulty, because again the next moment already arrived

5) The above is called practicing curiosity. Practice it a little bit during every moment - but again, don't get stuck with admiring your newly improved curiosity skills...

 

- I noticed quite soon that this is what I've practiced since the first MOOC I participated - #cck08. It's only been called 365 photos instead of mindfulness. I also felt that practicing prayers originating from the early Eastern Christianity follow the similar method. - As seem to do Buddhist prayers and Hindu prayer tradition...

 

- Experimenting with and contextualizing next learning practices very soon takes us to foundations of our world-views. We need ways to wake dialogue and keep it alive and empowering. Visualizing feelings daily rising from the gray areas of our world-views seems to be an efficient method. Can we ever reach the same through using words only? - I don't believe so...

Learning Phases throughout 2.0

"1. Silence your inner voice

2. Dramatically reduce using words

3. Absorb unfamiliar ways of expressing yourself within your #PLE

4. Focus on the unknown within your closest environment

5. Find & experiment with your personal accent - virtual tools can be invaluable at this stage

6. Let your transformed roots become your next source of energy"

- "How to become a Peer in the #Open" by @Connectirmeli (June, 2012) -

 

- I finished today a 'round seven-year-process of experimenting, action research and living theory perceptions in practice. In brief - when I started I had Transformative Learning Phases as a base:

Withdrawal => Defense => Minimizing => Acceptance => Adaptation => Integration (as they had become crystallized during European Union Socrates Programme Minerva Project Intercultural Learning in the Internet).

 

The second meta level idea was formed by The Conscious Competence Ladder: Unconscious Incompetence => Conscious Incompetence => Conscious Competence => Unconscious Competence.

 

The third corner stone later on emerged called as Invisible Learning proto-paradigm. It became crystalized through ongoing learning experiments within my closest environments as follows:

- We've all got Identity 0.0 through our childhood, youth, the way we were socialized to working life...

- We've more or less been forced to fit in Identity 1.0 through quarterly economic thinking. It satisfies a lot of people in form of good salaries, good retirement allowances, rewarding work in general ...as Good Life 1.0.

- Identity 2.0 has emerged among a growing global tribe of people - who are obsessed to co-(re)construct as long as it takes to get rid of Life 1.0. - The current key finding that has become crystalized through living among the before mentioned tribe for last four years is that we need(ed) Everything 2.0 to get rid of A Lot of 1.0.

 

My above picture summarizes how Learning 2.0 (and all the way from the beginning simultaneously unlearning both 1.0 and 2.0...) has looked like, felt like, emerged and appeared from #cck08 to change.mooc.ca/ and themes around which I'm going to co-(re)invent, experiment and contextualize more in future. - In my present home country Finland there's exactly now a vast demand for co-creating 'stepping stone methods' for transforming the present socio-cultural (working) climate. Having reached the end of the road (of management and education 1.0) has been a commonly heard conclusion in a number of seminars in Finland during recent couple of years.

 

IDENTITY 3.0 - the Fourth Identity wiil be one perspective - a proto-perspective! - to what we've been / are aiming at through the variety of ongoing unlearning processes like unconferences and Massive Open Online Courses. - A proto-MOOC 3.0 is already looming in the horizon...!?

It was February 14th, 2004 when I wrote my 1st introduction @ Verkkosalkku VLE for a Trans European pilot course belonging to the European Union Socrates Programme Minerva project "Intercultural Learning in the Internet": I expressed my gratitude for the possibility of being involved in the development phase! -Of the training / coaching / research program "Holistic Cultural Competence Assessment" that the pilot course was one part of - that's what I thought :)) . It meant a boost for a process that now - after six full years - is clearly entering a next phase.

 

Many people around me compress the current change by saying: "Social media is dead". This confused me a bit in the beginning. But I'm more and more thinking the same way. I put it in the following way when reflecting my own 'personal learning network' constructing process (of last six years) for a recent prez in Finnish:

 

The 1st phase (2004-2008):

Personal learning environment - four years of courses like the above mentioned IntCultNet and Web Tutor Training, Personal Growth, Self-Leadership and ELECTRA Multicultural... -VLE journeys with a beginning and end and big loneliness after and between the training courses. What was completely new and crucial was that these courses were based on self and peer evaluation and no exams - read: learning in stead of education.

 

The 2nd phase

began during 2008 - social web tools entered my learning and life through global contacts. Massive Open Online Course CCK08 in the end of the year taught how to begin a MASSIVE filtering of networked everything. I call this phase: constructing the Personal Learning Network.

 

The 3rd phase

began during last year. The MASSIVE filtering process taught how to find recommendations, support, transparency and help by learning to build and offer them myself at first. -All opportunities already exist out there in the networks. Your own ability to filter and - what is the KEY ISSUE taught throughout CCK08 and CCK09 - DEEPEN the personal global network. Key issues to learn are building trust and confidence and widening one's own world view - understanding more of processes and mechanisms of how attitudes consist of ethics and moral. I describe this phase as: Open Learning Network.

 

The 4th phase

is what I referred in the above as "entering a next phase": "Open Competence Network". The opposite - likewise emerging - pole of widening networks are the deepening and gradually tightening of networks. The difference and concrete advance (read: source of innovation) compared with life before the PLE phase (in my case six years ago) is that I now begin to work with people I never would have reached, found or even known of if I had continued the working methods of the era of e-mails & doc. attachments. The era of Open Competence Network means that all our work is result of an active and conscious sharing of a life-wide (un)learning process. This has become (the FEELING of what's) our daily routine! Research and development has been / more and more will be replaced by creativeness and innovation. It means R&D consisting of unlearned learning, teaching, coaching and self-leadership focused into the others, into the emerging network.

 

Returning to the idea of "the death of the social media"... -Yes, it's dead for me in the way I've been depending on it for reaching the phase Open Competence Network. -Currently I feel grateful again. Now it's time we put into practice the ways we learned to utilize during the phase we called "social media". We've began / more and more begin to work in a way we - globally - exactly never have experienced before. Let's load the next years with as big surprises as what we did during the last ones :)).

 

This reflection was boosted by this tweet by @cristinacost - asking for concrete cases. My reply is: the phase of "learning to be online" is not about concrete cases. It's about adopting a different point of view toward life - helping and accepting help within emergent professional networks. It's a means of transport toward achieving innovative kinds of concrete (research) cases. I described the years of loneliness in the beginning. Now that there's an evolving network of people having - what? cleared the jungle? for a beginning... WE PROMISE that we'll be there for all of you joining the construction processes of concrete new cases!

 

Edited on Feb. 25, 2010: The best in networked reflection is that it's guaranteed to progress. Here's my next step Here's my next step. Link to blog post by @cristinacost here.

 

(The picture refers to the day six years ago: It was Valentine's Day, which we in Finland - upon initial of the Finnish Red Cross in the 1980's - celebrate as the Day of Friendship. Yesterday the Feb. 14th was also the Shrove Sunday - in addition to the Cristian tradition that day goes long back in history: The family / house who's sledge slided longest was predicted to collect the best harvest by the next autumn. Sledges have been replaced by city snowboarding - like there were preparations made for when I walked by yesterday).

Sharing this feeling... I used the image copied in the comment field #1 in a #cck08 blog post: Understanding Self. The text attached to the image said: “I see the current phase of my learning to be like the bridge in the attached picture. I’m about to reach the other coast. My next learning cycles will not only reveal the landscape itself, but also show how my transformative learning journey did change the scenery.”

 

- As means of learning I perceived in 2008 the circle full of tasks by Alec Couros - linked in the comment field #2 of this photo.

- I mentioned attached with my 2012/366/329 how the performance the Museum of Postmodern Art by www.oblivia.fi/ perceived similar stages of action as experienced within networked learning

- The above #TP382 photo shows the next phase of my learning - not focusing on personal, but co-creative

- The chain of (learning) events 2008-2012 revealed that in front of 2013 there's still fog in the air - but there are people visible who'll share the next... whatever will come up

- The Museum of Postmodern Art project continues until 2016. What's going to happen related with co-creative learning? - In 2016 there is going to be:

=> much less fog?

=> surprising co-learners?

=> what else?

 

The topic of #TP382 was visualizing 'the harvest' - where ever you get it from www.todaysposting.com/TPAssignment.php?TP=382 - my 'harvest' from past four years comes from learning emergent network weaving.

I am sharing an office: still waiting for permanent relocation - could be a while. This is the view of my desk at uni. Details of postcards in next pix.

I just reordered the ideas from version 1. I think this map is more simple and reflec a closer view of what's on my mind. Siemens would say that I'm externalizing my concepts ;)

The biggest a-HA moment ever... thanks to my amazing gestalt method co-un-learning crew yesterday...

 

I created the above concept map almost exactly five years ago for a #CCK08 course blog post: connectirmeli.wordpress.com/2008/10/03/cck08-concept-map-...

 

- My motivation and intention was to learn to put connective learning in practice in all fields of life (and art - I add now). Today I can say that what the first connectivist MOOC was about... is to collect and connect your personal theory of use and then unlearn every single box of it. For me the process has taken five years. This photo 2013/365/286 completes my second week of learning (instead of the neverending feeling unlearning) - at last!!!

 

"Further, Argyris says in “Good Communication that Blocks Learning”: Each of us has what I call an espoused theory of action based on principles and precepts that fit our intellectual backgrounds and commitments. But most of us have quite a different theory-in-use to which we resort in moments of stress. And very few of us are aware of the contradiction between the two. In short, most of us are consistently inconsistent in the way we act... azuregate.net/2013/01/28/the-utility-of-double-loop-learn...

 

With gratitude and <3 <3 <3 <3 for you all who have witnessed and given aesthetic feedback during the next Personal Learning Ecosystem (un)construction process...

Part of the mindmap about the conectivist notion of knowledge

My TwitWall microblog post of December 04, 2008 Having chosen from approx. 5000 pieces of connectivism - PERSONAL LEARNING NODES #9:

 

This artwork by Finnish Janna Syväoja is located at EMMA Museum of Modern Art. It consists of approx. 5000 pieces of jigsaw puzzle, hanging from the ceiling. This visualizes exactly, how the content of the #cck08 course seemed to me in the beginning - well, throughout the course actually. The meaning of the #cck08 revealed to me is that there existed one planned selected frame of reference - where to start to pick up themes and details from and to form new wholes, piece by piece. Otherwise all the pieces would have remained hanging in the air, in the virtual and non-virtual space. CCK08 built the threads binding the pieces together, to a whole - a new kind of whole.

 

And what's most important: I learned to process the aspired whole piece by piece, one piece at a time. Choosing, keeping and occasionally checking the direction of learning, managing and living is what counts. The amount of pieces processed at one time does not. For this thinking process photoblogging => microblogging and => blogging are excellent ways of action. It can only be learned and discovered by trying, doing, writing, visualizing, chatting, by oneself - and one piece at a time.

My visualization texts so far only in Finnish - in brief:

 

I #cck08 was a big awakening to networked learning

II networks produced a vicious circle of over and over again starting a similar process: 1) wanting to change the world, 2) not wanting to do it within or by the network, 3) despite tiredness wanting to force the process to expand, 4) starting again...

III #aikamatka - the time journey to the future of learning was a transformation point

 

I'll share a lot more soon :)

The next connective (working and learning) knowledge open online course cck11.mooc.ca/ begins within a week. When browsing blog links bookmarked during the cck08 - they contain still very valid information. -No surprise... learning to become connective begins with unlearning & saying goodbye to a number of old unreflected attitudes and ways of action. Re-contextualizing is a key word.

 

I've begun to notice that you actually can utilize many of your old thoughts. They function in a completely different way in a re-created personal and connective context. Everyone's impact gradually transforms.

 

On of the blog posts I reread today: Ecologies of Learning by Jay Cross

The current age should be one of throwing open doors of learning to bring as many potential contributors to our future as possible.
