    bengrey Some people simply don't want to be self-directed learners. Even adults. Do we validate that and accommodate, or push them to change?

    fceblog It makes me wonder if connectivism theory can explain the conversations I've been having with books.

    fceblog @gsiemens Language as a (social) performance can lead to many definitions of learning. Internalized language concept (competence) may help.

    bengrey @lesliemaniotes I would say yes. It's an interaction between me, the camera, and the subject. Also, http://is.gd/c2Rg9

    bengrey @budtheteacher @davecormier @djakes That was terribly worded on my part. I should have said I don't know how it isn't. That's what I meant.

    bengrey @davecormier @budtheteacher @djakes I'm having a hard time thinking that learning isn't a social construct. The way we interact with ideas.

    budtheteacher Is the blog the right place to focus my attention? What about our other district digital spaces? What sorts of writing are happening there?

    budtheteacher How is the blog changing/affecting classroom practice? Is it? Does what happens on the blog stay on the blog?

    bengrey This will teach me to ask smart people a question and then go a meeting. Good conversation @djakes @budtheteacher@davecormier on learning.

    fceblog @budtheteacher I don't find it useful to distinguish between reading books or talking to people. Good reading *is* a conversation.

    fceblog @budtheteacher The language we developed (to choose a word) has traces of other people we met or read. Language capability is inherited.

    fceblog @davecormier You just mentioned another fascinating word: 'real'. Whatever that means. When it gets into debates, things get blurred.

    davecormier @fceblog what point could there be in 'deciding' what 'social' means. pick a definition and work with it.

  1. dave cormier
    dave cormier
    davecormier @fceblog my experience is that 90% of these debates come down to insufficient time spent clarifying semantics or thinking of words as 'real'

    smartinez @fceblog "social epistomology" is a term of art. I'm not sure that desconstructing it simply because it has two words really helps.

    fceblog @budtheteacher I think (maybe) @djakes was pairing the definition of social with public as opposed to personal. @davecormier

  1. Claudia Ceraso
    Claudia Ceraso
    fceblog @budtheteacher It's interesting to see how all learning mediated by language (use) is social. Yet language (in the brain) is not social.

  1. Claudia Ceraso
    Claudia Ceraso
    fceblog @smartinez I think @davecormier is on the right track. We need to clarify 'social' 1st to have a conversation. @budtheteacher

    Bud Hunt
    budtheteacher @smartinez @djakes I reckon we are. (It's not a terribly complicated idea, but it requires a slightly different way of thinking.)

    smartinez .@budtheteacher @djakes probably more precisely social epistomology and not really for/against, just different interpretations.

    Bud Hunt
    budtheteacher @djakes You're welcome to disagree. But who wrote the book? Did that author use language? Invent all the words? (cont) http://tl.gd/17tsm2

  1. dave cormier
    dave cormier
    davecormier @bengrey meaning that if you are trying to convince someone about this... that's the the standard interpretation of 'social'

  1. dave cormier
    dave cormier
    davecormier @bengrey same feelings as @budtheteacher with the caveat that his words are also negotiated and not all people will agree w his def.

    djakes @budtheteacher I disagree with your example, I read a book in my office and process ideas by myself and that's social learning? Really?

    Ben Grey
    bengrey @budtheteacher Oh, good, you're around. Was wondering what u think about this. Is some learning not social? Wonder what @davecormier thinks.



  1. djakes @akamrt Not all learning is social, and, btw, try telling parents that the school is going to use a social networking site-good luck.

    djakes @ewanmcintosh Twitter provides access to ideas and resources that I can use to direct, redirect, or deepen my ideas about what I do.

    David Jakes
    djakes @akamrt @mcleod Why must it be a social networking platform? Why is that the focus? Why not academic networking, or networked learning.
