Rhizomatic Learning

Hello.

Listened to a recording of yesterday’s instructor discussion of Dave Cormier’s notion of rhizomatic learning. Have to say that all, Dave, Stephen and George … represented slightly different viewpoints that worked well together and which helped Dave to unpack the metaphor of rhizomaticity (??).

I also tried to twitter summary thoughts as I listened:

 

-Steve to Dave: Rhizome replications/modeling from one person(rhizome) to another (rhizome). George rhizomes aren’t separate (unlike trees).
-Dave:We are part of the same system, we are so intertwined in the same system that we can also meaningfully refer to one continuous entity.

-Steve to Dave: Rhizome replications/modeling from one person(rhizome) to another (rhizome). George rhizomes aren’t separate (unlike trees).

-George asked Dave about what’s next wi Rhizomatic learning/open learning: D will do a formal inquiry addressing questions re teaching openly

-Days 2 and 3 of Change Mooc see Dave’s blog summary: http://davecormier.com/edblog/2011/11/10/rhizomatic-learning-response-for-day-2-and-3/

-Dave:creating comfortable learning environments is a way of creating passive, disengaged learners(who therefore won’t learn independently).

-Presenters parcing the intended (metaphorical) impact rather than a literal interpretation of his rhizomatic[metaphorical] lens on teaching.

-Rhizomatic learning…NOMAD/soldier/worker kind of model (George)–a way of framing a discussion.Nomad genuinely from Deluz & Katar.- othr 2

-The rhizomatic mtphr applies to process of growth. Diff biol&philosoph versions-qualities.A thousand plateaus…framework-definition.

-Listening to Dave,Stephen,George debriefing rhizomatic learning metaphor.It isn’t an epistemology…its a lense to learning. Dont prescribe.
