[Cross posted on Education Musings]

I spend much of my time reading, writing, discussing, and blogging about ideas around the broad theme of 21st Century learning. More specifically, what should 21st Century learning look like? How can social networking technologies be harnessed in learning spaces? How can emerging technologies truly, meaningfully impact the future of learning? How do we prepare our students and teachers for the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century?

This video on Connectivism and The Networked Student resonates with many of my views on the subject, and answers in part some of the questions raised above. No surprise that the video has a connection to the person some refer to as the "father of e-learning 2.0" - Stephen Downes.

"The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during Fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler's high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros' Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century." (Description of video on youtube).

Love the 'Paperworks' style of the Common Craft videos ...

Great video Shuchi. I'm working on a project with the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) that will make this type of learning possible for any learner! I would love to get in touch with the students who put this together to see if they would like to work with us to mentor us, perhaps mentor our students and take part and learn with us.
Of course, I'd be happy to talk with you about the project farther. It is designed to be a manifestation of connectivism. "It's about learning, it's not about schooling!"
