Post Title: Connecting to be connected? #CMC11 MOOC
By Chrissi Nerantzi, Feed Name: Chrissi Nerantzi
Preview: Started writing this post a few days ago. Today, I came back and deleted what I had written. It didn’t reflect anymore my thinking. I therefore decided to capture my reflections using photovoices. My thoughts wander to some of my week 2 readings but also to a conference I attended today at the University of [...]

Post Title: Solitary vs. Networked Creative Play, and competition vs. collaboration

Post Title: We never stop learning. Even when drinking. Or maybe especially when drinking.
By johngriffin0928, Feed Name: Forever Learning
Preview: “We never stop learning, do we?” That was not the sentence I had expected to stop me in my tracks Sunday evening at a private dinner overflowing with spectacular wines, amazing food and, well, all sorts of merry-making that only moneyed seem to get to enjoy. Yet, there I was, with a glass of 1981 [...]

Title: Connecting to be connected? #CMC11 MOOC
Preview: Hi Chrissi, Loved your photovoices. Beautiful photos and lovely voice of truth. But I am not sure about this one "we all want to connect. we need each other." It reminds me of what most of us are doing these days, reaching out to search and live on others' attention, care and love, instead of working on our own. I believe that we are spiritual beings which are naturally connected in a .......

Title: We never stop learning. Even when drinking. Or maybe especially when drinking.
Preview: Hi John, I don't drink at all, so it took me a while to go through the post and get your point. It turned out to be a good point! I believe that creative people never stop moving forward, always looking for something new or better solutions. Looking at the bright side, it's exactly the challenges, improvements, trials and errors that make learning an enjoyable process.Love and Light,...

Title: Re: We never stop learning. Even when drinking. Or maybe especially when drinking.
Preview: As I said in the piece, I'm known to digress. But we do learn -- and learn about learning -- in the most interesting places and at the times we least expect it. We just have to open to what is opened to us and thankful for growth

Title: Re: A conceptual Issue
Preview: That's a really good question and one I had been wondering about myself. This is as far as I've gotten with "grokking" the distinction, but I am new to this too so do NOT take this as gospel:Connectionism :A theory in cognitive pscyhology and other disciplines (including artificial intelligence!) that sees mental phenomena (including knowledge) as a web of independent nodes that ....

Title: Re: Introducing Yourself
Preview: hi there MOOCmates (I love the term btw)!my name is janine and I was referred here by my primary mentor who thought this is just up my alley...which, as it turns out, is!  I am in my last semester for a BA at ESC and with a busy life outside of it, I'm not sure if I am able to devote much time on here and seek and experience every little thing on MOOC, but I am glad to be part of the ....
