As far as I understand our PBL group is meant to teach us through collaborative learning, i.e. us discussing and learning together. So far I find myself doing a substantial amount of individual learning from reading the suggested articles and reflecting on how we work together as a group. The PBL group is adding more to the workload than the learning experience, trying to fit in meetings and make them work.

We set up rules, eg +1 comments to acknowledge that they had been read or letting other know when we wouldn't be able to take part in discussions due to other commitment. But we don't follow our own rules, probably because we haven't gotten past that first stage of socialization, which I think is essential to create a sense of responsibility towards our fellow students in the group.

There is, however, a bigger group of learners in the ONL161 community. And now that we are focusing on flexibility, I am thinking that one option would be to go outside of our group and start interacting with the rest of the students there. What do the rest of you think about that kind of flexibility? Why stick to a small, rather inactive group, when the limited number of people is only a benefit when you do online meetings or if you have gotten to know each other and matured as a group?

I like to draw mind maps and made this of topic 4. I hope we'll get the chance to discuss my questions on Friday.

Kay and I managed to have a Adobe connect meeting focusing on topic 4. We both suggest choosing scenario 2 and will start working on that. 

Our group is still struggling and I believe that we haven't gotten past the socialization phase which I so important for commitment. Google Drive is not apt for discussions and comments, but at least Topic 3 is evolving. I think there are many interesting questions in the Topic 3 document and I hope we'll have time to explore them together. 

Marcus, you need to make everybody able to edit the Google Drive document for Topic 4.

I'm running behind on my blogging, partly due to lack of time, but mainly because I always need to think things through before I write a blog post. Inspiration doesn't come easily. https://akutdoktorn.wordpress.com/2016/03/24/my-digital-self-is-just-me/

I uploaded our presentation to YouTube. The audio seems to have been lost, but I won't bother to fix it until you have had a chance to comment. https://youtu.be/ljPXd_I_Elk

I use my blog to reflect on different things. This time it is on PBL and lifelong learning.
