Philosophical implications Need for recognition of role in knowledge creation by social networking ( knowledge networking/ ) Emerging theories of ‘connectivism’ Changing nature of information & knowledge creation-what constitutes authoritative ‘knowledge’ (does chat?/ other forms of socially constructed knowledge) Critique of the value chain-data/information/to knowledge (which is more useful) Content is subservient to the communities (prime driver) Recognition of changing nature of knowledge creation (formal vs informal /VLEs /PLEs) Speed of knowledge creation, can’t be matched by traditional publishing methodologies (QA/Mdata/standrds/copyright etc) Learning can’t be relegated to the classroom-Global (more tech in bag) Students, peers are valid knowledge creators (publishing is a democratic activity-decentralised creativity)

Need for recognition of role in knowledge creation by social networking ( knowledge networking/ ) Emerging theories of ‘connectivism’

Changing nature of information & knowledge creation-what constitutes authoritative ‘knowledge’ (does chat?/ other forms of socially constructed knowledge)

Critique of the value chain-data/information/to knowledge (which is more useful)

Content is subservient to the communities (prime driver)

Recognition of changing nature of knowledge creation (formal vs informal /VLEs /PLEs)

Speed of knowledge creation, can’t be matched by traditional publishing methodologies (QA/Mdata/standrds/copyright etc)

Learning can’t be relegated to the classroom-Global (more tech in bag)

Students, peers are valid knowledge creators (publishing is a democratic activity-decentralised creativity)

Practical implications Duty of care: Guaranteeing ‘safety’ (identity /filtering) Guaranteeing validity Reassessing education systems as ‘gateways’ of knowledge Teachers are no longer the centre of knowledge dissemination Revisit notions of learning Value of socially constructed knowledge ( or is it just ‘chat’ ?) VLE’s to PLE’s Licensing implications

Duty of care: Guaranteeing ‘safety’ (identity /filtering) Guaranteeing validity

Reassessing education systems as ‘gateways’ of knowledge

Teachers are no longer the centre of knowledge dissemination

Revisit notions of learning

Value of socially constructed knowledge ( or is it just ‘chat’ ?)

VLE’s to PLE’s

Licensing implications

What we need to do (Urgently): Recognise learning is a community enterprise (with all responsible-obligations) Students as meta learners (skills for C21 st learning) Platforms such as TaLe to bridge the formal and informal knowledge economies Teacher & community prof. development (teach social responsibility/information skills/new pedagogies) More flexible licensing and copyright (what is sharing?) Have capacity to exercise judgement & responsibility in matters of morality, ethics and social justice and accept responsibility for their own actions ( The Adelaide declaration 1.3) . Radical trust
