This page will catch a few of my thoughts on the process. I would welcome your comments as well if anything resonates.

    I tried last week to create CMap but got too caught up in the technology and not quite “getting it” – it wasn’t intuitive.

    Downloaded “The Brain” (www.thebrain.com/) today and it was a breeze. Found it really easy and thought how closely aligned it’s principles are to the key ideas of how I currently understand Connectivism.

    “To Know but not yet to Do, is not yet to Know” (unsourced).

    Perhaps this piece of pop psychology is at the nub of Connectivism and its epistemology. We collect a lot of “information” in a day which is clearly not knowledge. Until we make the connections by changing our behaviours or acting differently then it remains information.

    Concept maps

    As a left handed Taurean wonder whether the more effective concept maps for me are simple to look at with an ordered arrangement such as Lia’s in CCK08 blog or showing the full complexities as in Bradley Shoebottom’s – see “The Daily” post of September 23.

    Clearly there are no simple answers but perhaps the concept is often more useful to the author than a reader. I’m also leaning more to the visual simplicity as espoused by Garr Reynolds in his work through Presentation Zen (www.presentationzen.com).

    Still struggling with which way to go with my own concept. Maybe I write one for myself and one for others to comment upon.

    Paper #1

    Agonised a bit over this paper. Who was the audience – myself? my colleagues? the markers? the blogoshere?

    Settled on the photography metaphor as a way of capturing the practicalities of what I’ve read.

    Quite a few others are writing theoretical pieces – this doesn’t suit me at present.
