Presentation on social learning for EC&I 831 (Grad Edtech Course) by Dr. Alec Couros.

Open Connected Social Pedagogy for the Connected Age

Fill in the Blanks (i) • “[This Device] appealed at once to the eye and to the ear, thus naturally forming the habit of attention, which is so difficult to form by the study of books. Whenever the pupil will not fully understand [it] will have the opportunity of enlarging and making more intelligible.”

Fill in the Blanks (ii) • “[These instruments are] not uncommon, but are little resorted to by the teacher.” • “The teacher almost knows as little how to use [it] as his pupils.” What are they talking about?

Educator Quotes from the 1840’s about the Chalkboard

Fill in the Blanks (iii) • “... the existing system is utterly inefficient. The teacher ... may pour it in the ear, or extract it from the printed page ... but unless he teaches through the eye, no satisfactory instruction can be conveyed.”

Sir David Brewer (1856) on the Magic Lantern

Fill in the Blanks (iv) • “[It] is going to make school so attractive that a big army of swords and guns couldn’t keep boys and girls out of it.” • “Mix [it] with education and you’ll have something that makes kids want to go to school. You’ll have to lick’em to keep ‘em away.”

Edison (1911) on Moving Pictures

I never knew ...

Overload Faced with information overload, we have no alternative but pattern recognition. (McLuhan, 1969)

Networked Proximity ... networked proximity facilitates new kinds of spatially unbound community, and that these emerging forms of sociality are equally or more meaningful than the older ones. Community is thus “liberated,” unhinged from space, and can be maintained regardless of distance. (Mejias, 2007)
