Research questions
Research Questions

  • What is a network and what isn`t ?

  • How is learning produced in a network?

  • Which and what kind of learning is constructed in networks?

  • What are the conditions and characteristics of efective learning networks?

  • What is the impact of learning networks in current society?

John Connell*…a unique symposiun Network Environments

“The Forum on Learning Networks, … is a small-scale symposium…the discourse being generated by this intense “learn-in” is deep and broad and engrossing in a way that I have not heard before in a single event.”

“Everyone here is well aware of the criticality of the technology base for network learning, but equally no one is really talking about technology, other than in the context of the abiding need across this region to extend access to a greater and greater proportion of their countries’ populations.”

*RaaR`s keynote Speaker, Education Business Development Manager, Emerging Markets, Cisco Systems

Topics and discussions
Topics and discussions Network Environments

FIRST SESION.

Learning in Networks: The role of learning and technology in individual and

social productivity in today`s society

Presentation 1

  • Learning in Network Environments:The Role of Learning &Technology with Individual and Social Productivity

    Panel 1 What is the nature of the learning being produced in networks?

  • Red ALFORJA, Costa Rica: Networked work : weaving complexities and strengths

  • Instituto de Medicina Topical, Alexander Von Humbolt: Health and Youth

  • Argentinean Association of Regional Agricultural Experimentation Centers (AACREA): What is the nature of the learning that is produced in networks? Examples from practice.


Second Session Network Environments

Learning Networks: The power of Collaboration, the Learning Distribution and social interaction

Presentation 2The Power of Learning in a Networked World

Panel 2

Learning to collaborate & collaboration in networks: lessons from the practice.

  • Fundación Chasquinet, Ecuador,: Above all, networks are human.

  • Rural Youth Networks, Costa Rica.

  • Escuela Superior Politécnica del Litoral (ESPOL): Latin-American Network of Educational Technology.


Main Ideas Network Environments

  • Above all: “social networks”

  • Digital technologies invigorate and expand the possibilities of communication and exchange in networks

  • There are different kinds of networks and diverse kinds of learning

  • Links/Connections are made of common interests and objectives

  • A network is an “organic” entity.

  • The development of networks is based on people values.


Main Ideas Network Environments

  • In some networks, it is possible to describe how learning is taking place only if conditions were previously designed for this purpose.

  • It is possible and necessary to analyze learning in networks but also learning about the network itself.

  • In a network, conditions for inclusion have to be intentionally incorporated from the beginning.

  • Networks need to identify which structures favor sustainability and promotion through practice.

  • The sense of participation in networks is developed by the idea that “others know something that they can teach me, and I know something that others can learn from me”.


What`s next? Network Environments

  • Actions

    • Continue discussion at an online forum at: www.fod.ac.cr/raar

    • Complete the networks` inventory

    • Publish a document of lessons learned and research findings

    • Holding a 2nd International Forum in 2008

  • Forum`s participants indicated interest in participating in events related to networks and :

    • Governability

    • Sustainability

    • Finances

    • Development

    • Connectivity

    • Mediation

    • Intellectual property

    • Research

    • Assessment and self-evaluation
