Make With Me

One way to explore the learning principles of Connected Learning this week is to make a map. Though the possibilities are endless, here are a few to consider:

Map important learning or your #clmooc experience so far

If learning is a journey, where has it taken you? Where did you begin? Where are you now? When have you charted undiscovered country? When have you bumped into a border? How does making helping your learning journey move forward or into new ground?

(Prezi is just one tool you might consider playing with in mapping your learning.)

Create a literal map and use it to tell a story

What is the connection between place and story? When is a map integral to a memory, or vital to a memoir? How does the physical place you inhabit impacts your making and learning?

(Google is just one tool you might consider using to create a map to tell a story.)

Map important connections

What are some of the important connections you have made in your Personal Learning Network, in #clmooc, or even in your local writing project? What do the connections you make look like and how do they support your learning and your making?

(Cacoo is just one tool you might consider to create a concept map or diagram.)

OR… Go on a learning walk

What can you learn from the places around you? Mary Ann Riley’s blog post, Being in the Middle: Learning Walks, shares her vision for an experimental approach to rhizomatic learning with students that involves walking, seeing, recording and learning.

What might you create on a walk in the places around you?

    Here are thoughts about maps and maybe some future ideas how we could use them better. How do you use maps yourself or at schools with students?

  3. Mind Map-Cycle 4 (2013)
       submitted by Runae Edwards-Wilson

    My mind – map depicts my past and ongoing activities and was completed using Microsoft Word. Doing this has led me to consider future activities. Maybe making some of my hobbies more than hobbies.

  5. Make a fantastic learning map
       submitted by Chad Sansing

    Using Dave’s Mapper (http://davesmapper.com/), create a unified or remixed fantasy map. Save or print it and then mark it up to give it some symbolic or literal meaning that connects to your life or learning. If you love this kind of stuff (mapping, gaming, drawing), submit a tile set of your own under the “Submit Tiles” tab. Note that the app is licensed CC-BY-NC-SA, so please consider your make to be licensed the same way.

  6. Laziness Map
       submitted by Bart Miller

    I mapped my laziness process in order to gain insight into my own thinking and to generalize about an issue common to all learners and makers.

  1. Make a life map
       submitted by Karen Fasimpaur

    This exercise in creating a life map from Acumen was originally geared toward those taking a social entrepreneurship class but has all kind of other uses in my mind. "What is a life map? A life map helps you understand where you are by thinking about where you’ve been—geographically, culturally, socially, academically, professionally—and where you might want to go next. "
