The Collective

by

What really struck me when viewing videos of Douglas Englebart and reading parts of his essay ‘Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework’ so kindly excerpted for us by Gardener Campbell, was when he talked about the idea of a Collective IQ. As an invertebrate zoologist, when I think of a collective, a bee hive comes to mind. Individual […]

“….it really gets hard when you start believing in your dreams….” — Doug Engelbart

In the hope that anything worth posting once can be re-posted again (different audiences?), I’m offering this reflection / question I wrote for Gardner’s New Media Seminar a couple years ago .  Thoughts, anyone? I’ve posted before about how central Doug Engelbart is to the Awakening of the Digital Imagination. This time I’m going to […]

Augmented Intelligence: The True and Only AI

by

we-are-open
This week for #OpenLearning17 we’re reading excerpts from Doug Engelbart’s “Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework.” And here I am now, in reflecting upon this text, putting into practice the very “conceptual framework” that it so perspicaciously advanced more than half a century ago. We take it for granted today, this ability to display and […]

In The Abstract

Before I started this post, I looked around to see if anyone else had posted on this week’s content yet. I wanted to see about linking to other content as we have been prompted to do. Well, as far as I can tell, no one has written on this week yet, so someone has to […]

Thinking About Open

by

Note: This is an off topic #openlearning17 post. This week I have found myself immersed in conversations about #OER, and the question of open vs. free keeps raising its head. As my colleagues work on their projects, they are getting swamped with trying...

How to survive (and thrive?) in a cMOOC

by

we-are-open
I’m in my first MOOC and I’m learning.  I’m learning how to be a learner in this new-to-me environment.  This is a constructivist MOOC, so while each of us is constructing our own learning path, we are also all shaping the learning experience together. What I’m learning about how to be a learner in this […]

A Few Thoughts on Nelson

by

we-are-open
Point 1 The text mentions the annoyance of fake interactions, like a toll booth with a “Thank You” sign in lights (Nelson). However, I rather like the automatic “thank you” programmed into various machines—or the automated voice that tells you to have a nice day on a phone call. There are some people who could learn a […]

A day late…

I didn’t get around to making a post happen for #openlearning17 week 2 before it ended, but I did participate in our cMOOC in few (low-profile, lurker-y) ways. A lot of people seemed to have previously read or heard of Vannavar Bush’s “As We May Think,” but this was my first exposure to it somehow (I […]
