Transparency in Online Education - annotated bibliography

Transparency in Cooperative Online Education (june – 2009)
Christian Dalsgaard - Aarhus University, Denmark
Morten Flate Paulsen - The Norwegian School of Information Technology, Norway
This article presents discussion: What is the pedagogical potential of social networks to support collaborative learning online? Since the argument is that social networking is to feature the ability to facilitate transparency, interaction and communication among students. The basic assumption is that transparency is important for online education cooperative. People can collaborate only know each other and have access to some information and common services. Online collaborative learning within the central challenge is to enable students to follow the work of their colleagues enabling learning in everything that is produced. Also, transparency is an important driver of quality improvement.
Personally I would comment that as a student of Masters in Pedagogy of E-Learning can say that really is very good to share the productions of his colleagues and especially to learn from them, after all we are a group with a different training focus more pedagogical and other more affinity with the technologies, which has been wonderful, but also a challenge. It is not easy to learn while being evaluated throughout the process not only by the teacher or the group, but in an open throughout the Network, which often exposes us, but then the transparency makes us follow in pursuit of increasing quality. A big challenge.
Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age (december 2004)
George Siemens
The three broad learning theories most often utilized in creation of instructional environments are behaviorism, cognitivism and constructivism, however, were developed at a time when learning was not impacted through technology. Over the past twenty years, technology has reorganized how we live, how we communicate and how we learn.And the learning needs and theories that describe the principles and processes of learning, should be to reflect the social environment.Many important questions are raised when established learning theories are seen through technology. The natural attempt of theorists is to continue to revise and develop theories as conditions change. At some point, however, the underlying conditions have changed so significantly, that further modification is no longer sensible. A completely new approach is needed.
While not directly addressing transparency in online education, I see that this article provides an important foundation for discussing education mediated by technology, and allows us to evaluate the need for a new approach when it comes to learning.
Social networking sites: Transparency in online education (octubre – 2010)
Christian Dalsgaard - Institute of Information and Media Studies, University of Aarhus, Helsingforsgade 14, 8200 Aarhus N
Dalsgaard this article gives the sequence its work by discussing the pedagogical potential of social networking sites and presents two features of Social Networking: personalization and socialization, and these characteristics lead to transparency, for the author's point of departure for this social interaction is the work done by pupils in their own personal pages. The author also reviewed the literature on the definition of groups: communities and networks.In this article I consider it important to reflect on how social relations mediated by the network can support learning and still the focus of students should create awareness that production must be shared.
