PLoPs & hillside  - 
 
+Joseph Yoder and +Filipe Correia, it was great gathering this afternoon from various points around the globe! It should be the start of more awareness of patterns as tools for work and life! We've set up (well, renamed) a category in this community for "PLoP/Hillside" topics - so feel free to use that, and/or you might consider starting another Google+ community just for Hillsiders and PLoPpers?

Those who are interested in meeting members of the Hillside Group, Peeragogy.org, and organizers of PLoP conferences around the world, please RSVP here for our next meetup on June 9 at 5 pm US Eastern time.

Here's a link to a new editing project ("contest") to improve coverage of individual women and woman-relevant themes on Wikipedia.

The talk page is also interesting.

Maybe an interesting case study developing there.

"Chuck also enjoys giving back to his fans, and teaching the art of storytelling has been an important part of that. In 2004, Chuck began submitting essays to ChuckPalahniuk.net on the craft of writing. These were 'How To' pieces, straight out of Chuck's personal bag of tricks, based on the tenants of minimalism he learned from Tom Spanbauer. Every month, a “Homework Assignment” would accompany the lesson, so Workshop members could apply what they had learned. (all 36 of these essays can currently be found on The Cult's sister-site, LitReactor.com)."

Finland will become the first country in the world to get rid of all school subjects. "There will no longer be any classes in physics, math, literature, history, or geography."

"The general idea is that the students ought to choose for themselves which topic or phenomenon they want to study, bearing in mind their ambitions for the future and their capabilities. In this way, no student will have to pass through an entire course on physics or chemistry while all the time thinking to themselves 'What do I need to know this for?'"

I have mixed feelings about this. Udacity, where I've signed up, has completely changed their approach from a traditional class-based approach (albeit with videos interspersed with quizzes, in the online incarnation) to a project-based approach. So instead of being taught a subject step-by-step, you're given a project and you have to figure out how to do it completely on your own. It's a much harder way to learn something new, but, maybe it sticks better (what in the education field is called "retention") because your knowledge is hard-won and you had to connect it with something "real" (your project which accomplishes some "real world" task.)

Elon Musk has also come out strongly in favor of the project-based approach to education; says that's how he teaches his kids everything. You give the kids the task of building a car or building a rocket, and they have to figure out all the math, all the physics, figure out all the tools, and everything, in order to accomplish it.

Although the term "project-based" doesn't appear in this article, it sounds like Finland is going to convert its entire school system to this approach. Who knows, maybe that will result in a quantum leap in the learning of Finnish kids? I guess we'll know in a generation.

Finland’s education system is considered one of the best in the world. In international ratings, it’s always in the top ten. However, the authorities there aren’t ready to rest on their laurels, and they’ve decided to carry through a real revolution in their school system. Finnish officials want to remove school subjects from the curriculum. There will no longer be any classes in physics, … Continue reading

Learning sinks in when we do it. That sounds basic, but so many people think it is something that is done to them – the teacher will teach me, that’s how I learn. Well, not really. The teacher presents, facilitates, encourages, fosters, but the learner learns. Only you can do it. Simple and very powerful …

What does any group of peers, or self-learners, need to know in order to self-organize learning or production around any topic? In the Peeragogy Handbook (peeragogy.org), you'll find volunteer-created and maintained strategies and resources that individuals can use to build successful peer learning and peer production enterprises. "Peeragogy in Action" is devoted to improving the handbook -- and helping YOU develop and apply successful peer learning techniques. Welcome, and be authentic, and be excellent to each other. #peeragogy #edtech #education #connectivism #edutech #onlinelearning

If you want to spend some money, A. J. Juliani is a good resource. He has a master course http://www.geniushour.com/author/ajjuliani/ and a book https://www.amazon.ca/Inquiry-Innovation-Classroom-Student-Success/dp/0415743168.

Don Wettrick has also written a book about his innovative class: http://www.theinnovationteacher.com/

Personally, I facilitated high school students in directing their own learning for five years. It is so powerful. Finland's doing away with subjects for high school is a brave move and I think it's a good one. We want to and need to know things for a purpose. "Genius hour" is a mindset.

A long article on the various sides of "safe space". (The title only scratches the surface of what's in there, although the theme of adjunct teaching staff picks up about half-way through.)

For example of the food for thought in here, there's an interesting paradoxical statement from Northwestern President M. Schapiro:

"students don’t fully embrace uncomfortable learning unless they are themselves comfortable"

A critic described his own teaching style as

"innocuous to the point of being toothless, mostly just slapping grades on online assignments and ensuring my student customers give me good marks so I get renewed for another academic term."
