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!
