Irony or response

Posted by C Elizabeth Thomas on April 6, 2007

A degree in social computing… hmm… I agree with Will Richardson’s assessment of the importance of experiential learning through social networking. Let’s see… all the contradictions in this approach really boil down to not understanding the change in the way knowledge is created. We understand the pace of change, certainly… I say we do what Will suggests!

    I came across an Australian researcher that made me re-examine one of my understandings of learning. I have always felt it was more important to demonstrate expert problem solving techniques rather than present worked out examples. John Sweller of the University of New South Wales has developed the Cognitive load theory that suggests partly worked out examples are better. Thanks to social computing and ubiquitous computing problem solvers seldom have to take full and sole responsibility for problem solving. I still think that some will perform better solo and that solo thinking is a skill that should not be allowed to atrophy.
