What I Learned from Swarm Learning

  • What are these terrible illnesses that are plaguing my mother?
  • When did the symptoms begin?
  • Where do we go from here?
  • Why is this happening to us?
  • How are we going to manage her health?
  • Who can help us?
  • … and the cycle of “What, When, Where, Why, How, and Who” questioning continues to this day as my mother turned 82 this year.
  • Information + Thinking = Knowledge.
  • Vision — emergent and adaptive learning.
  • Mission — teaching students how to think, not what to think.
  • Capacity — building capacity through thinking.
  • You will only use Blackboard to find the link to the Learning Community.
  • WordPress Learning Community.
  • Plectica.
  • Tableau.
  • Swarm Learning Facebook Group.
  • Thortspace.
  • Rationaleonline.
  • Medium.
  • The need to adapt creates the need for learning.
  • Individual and group concept mapping.
  • Collaboration.
  • There are no tests in this course; however, participation and feedback are essential. You must be fully engaged in this course.
