A holistic approach to Learning Design

 In February of this year Gráinne Conole presented to the Annual International CODE Symposium in Japan. In this presentation she explored in more detail a vision for a holistic approach to learning design.

  1. Look through and count the ways one can add to and improve the Cloud

A Learning Design workshop with trainee teachers in the UK

A few weeks ago we ran a workshop at the OU with a group of 40 teaching students. You might be interested in seeing the work that they did during the workshop, and the feedback we received from them. The group was mixed in both in terms of where they were in their course (some had just started and some about to finish) and also in their experience of using technologies both privately and professionally. None of them had used the four web 2.0 tools we introduced before.  The Geographers and Mathematicians were happy for us to record their plenary presentation and these videos are embedded in the ‘Video Clips – Sharing and discussing designs’ Cloud.

  1. Find the workshop Cloudscape
  2. Look at the sharing and discussing designs videos
  3. Look at the feedback and compare with the feedback from the Cyprus workshop. What are the similarities and differences?

Cloudworks can also be used to share and discuss resources, tools and issues. Here are a couple I think are particularly interesting:

    1. Good examples of mindmapping in teaching?
    2. Using Twitter with students
    3. Web 2.0 tools for teaching and learning (Cloudscape)

 Which Clouds have you found that might be of interest to others?

I have set up a  Cloud called ‘Interesting Clouds’. Go to this Cloud and add a link to a Cloud or Cloudscape you have found interesting and add a comment explaining why you have chosen it.
