CCK09

Well, I have signed up again and have noted that quite a few people that engaged with CCK08 have done the same, or are still interested.

Viplav Baxi http://learnoscck08.wordpress.com/ has just made an interesting post about collaboration and the notion of ‘courageous silence’ – something to think about in relation to connectivism.

Mike Bogle is getting all geared up and has posted a presentation he has done on CCK08 to keep us all up to speed.  http://techticker.net/2009/08/06/recording-from-cck08-presentation-for-unfed/

Gina Minks has created a CCK09 Friendfeed which is attracting interest. http://friendfeed.com/cck09 

There is probably a lot more going on that I am not aware of. There was last time, so no doubt there will be this time. Despite the fact that this blog is called Jenny Connected, I really am not that connected!

But because of the research I have been working on with Sui Fai John Mak and Roy Williams (CCK08 participants) I think that probably not a day has gone by since CCK08 that I haven’t thought about connectivism in one way or another. We have finished our data gathering and analysis and are now in the process of writing. We have at least 3 papers in mind and the first one has been drafted – the other two are still being discussed. The research has been a difficult and time-consuming process but immensely rewarding. I am hoping that as a result of this I will be in a better position to understand what is going on in CCK09, but maybe not!

If you are reading this and are not sure what CCK09 is then here’s the information http://ltc.umanitoba.ca/connectivism/

    @emapey – Thanks for your message. I have been following your blog so I have discovered that you know Nicola Avery, who I once worked with online. Small world! I’m not sure how active I will be in CCK09 – I’m still thinking about CCK08 🙂 Jenny

    @Heli – Yes we have had a good look at mathemagenic’s blog. It makes for interesting reading doesn’t it. Many thanks for thinking about us Heli. Jenny

    You know Nicola!! She is one of my best online connections. Yes, it’s really a small world. We became friends at Learntrends 2007.
    I find new connections at every new online course or conference. This is the main reason I signed up for CCK09.

    I really hope to see you and John, often, on the WordPress.com CCK09 tag page

    Hi Jenny, wow, the wonderful Eduardo directed me here – how are you, hope you are well ?

    I really appreciated all your insights, encouragement and advice on the online tutor course – wonderful !

    Is your header photo in Scotland ? I was up in the Highlands earlier this year, it is sooooo beautiful !

    I have signed up for Connectivism this time round, looking forward to exploring many things that I don’t understand !

    Take care and very warm wishes
    Nicola

    @Nicola great to hear from you Nicola. Thanks for visiting my blog. I also look forward to exploring many things I don’t understand on the Connectivism course – even though it will be second time round 🙂

    The header photo isn’t Scotland – but Cumbria – no so far from my house. The Lake District is a mini-Scotland!

    Look forward to ‘seeing’ you on the connectivism course.

    Jenny
