Web 2.0 Networked Learning Community

(viewed 849 times)
Hi. I am Diana from TAFE NSW Sydney Institute.

Together with my co-facilitators Sean Fitzgerald and Barbara Campbell, we are looking at setting up a community of practice (CoP) with the purpose of exploring Web 2.0 technologies in education and related learning theories, such as Connectivism and Networked Learning.

Based on peer-to-peer learning principles, the network will provide an opportunity for members to share skills and knowledge and mentor each other in new tools, practices and concepts.

The network will be built on the open web using Web 2.0 tools, modelling the process of creating networked learning communities based on personalised learning environments, thereby reflecting the underlying philosophy of learner-centred, self-organising, egalitarian networks.

RedHot Management Emergency Cost effective solutions needed

(viewed 806 times)
Hi.

Its Laurie Johns submitting this blog entry,

I am working collaboratively with Rod Stebbing technical co facilitator, from Emergency Service Training Initiative (ESTI) at Swinburne University to host a new online community of practice network in the development of Emergency Management Training by utilising e-learning.

It will involve establishing a series of online tools to facilitate communication and development of e-learning opportunities between Swinburne, Lakelands Faculty of Business, fire training staff at Alberta and the Australian fire agencies including Police, Ambulance, Local Government representatives, Industry, State Emergency Services (SES), Department of Human Services (DHS) and Department of sustainability and the Environment (DSE).

Australia is blessed with generous people that unselfishly give their spare time to support emergency services like the fire services and SES etc.

A lot of these volunteers live in remote locations and therefore training and professional development can be a bit of a problem. These valuable volunteers deserve good management at the local level.

Its difficult to provide the training thats needed in their location and its just as hard and costly to drag them all together at a central location many 100s of kilometres away.

Our Emergency Management Training Network will be exploring e-learning options and the range of available tools. Using these tools will be part of the networks experience; with the focus of recommending a diverse online delivery strategy that best fits the needs and learning styles of the intended audience for the new online Emergency Management Training.

Trainers Professional development Network

(viewed 713 times)
After doing a LearnScope course last year and an e-facilitation course this year.
I am totally hooked on the concept of online learning. It was such a revelation to me to see the different tools available.
The idea of this network is to show other trainers and assessors these tools and how they could use them to interact with their clients, especially the 'generation Y' clients.

Network of Schools Private And Catholic Education (NetSPACE)

(viewed 698 times)
Network of Schools Private And Catholic Education (NetSPACE)Sandra Robinson (fll 2002) and I ( Steve McVey) (FLL2004) are working with the 6 clusters of the Independent and Catholic schools sector in W.A. to assist their migration to e-learning.

The main focus on the network will be the development of online communication among the cluster participants. These clusters have had limited exposure to e-learning but are keen to learn about e-facilitation and the basics of instructional design to maximise their network potential and to enhance learning of theirstudents.

It will be interesting to compare this network with the government schools sector network we facilitated in 2005.
