After some weeks in rhizome14 the focus is shifting to the navel of the community. The community as a safe haven in the universe of internet and education.
JannymacknessAnn Gagne: ” Is There a Curriculum in this Community?” is a clear question to rhizo14. NOTE: @jennymacknesst it’s Ann Gagne’s blog post + question you linked to – not mine :-)
My personal rhizome is greater than rhizo14. ds106 and it is Potcert of Lisa M Lane are part of it. And my rhizome is the people I work with, the village i live in. It is the library, and whatever is in my life. It is the musicians I play with. Life as a curriculum and a rhizome.
The learning nomad is on the road and meets people, inspiration, views, and new insights. The knowmad comes in villages and cities of different knowledge and hears prophets and voices of wisdom, meets kind people. (assignment_1: what are the most important parts of your rhizome?)
The personal curriculum of a participant (has this words roots in curry??) is more than the curriculum of #rhizo14
The people of #rhizo14 are part of a greater communities. (asssignment_2: why do the #rhizo14 people think of their group as a community, why do not they think of it as a rhizome?)
The image of the nomad. I keep thinking of scenes from the book Kim of Rudyard Kipling. A crowded road with all kinds of interesting people. The book Kim is a very rhizomatic novel. (assignment: write an essay on the book Kim a a rhizomatic novel)
Is there a curriculum in this community?
If we read for curriculum: an invitation to learn, a possibility to learn. (assignment_3: what are differences between a rhizomatic curriculum? )
Than #rhizo14 is part of a curriculum.
Is sharing information = learning? It is a lower form of learning, information needs to make sense and must be translated to knowledge. Literacy and skills are part of learning. And questions such as about the sene of #rhizo14 are part of a learning process. (assignment_4: what are your opinions on the possibility of a curriculum in rhizomatic learning?)
I did learn (again) that kind words of passers-by are a bless to a nomad on the road of learning. Thank you for that. (assignment_5: be kind to passers-by)
