Podcast87: Stephen Downes on E-Learning 2.0- Learning Networks and Connected Learning

This podcast is a recording of a presentation made by Stephen Downes during Global Learn Day on October 8, 2006 and recorded via Skype and Call Recorder. I apologize for the keyboard noises which were inadvertently also recorded along with Stephen’s excellent presentation. Despite this distraction, I think Stephen’s message was superb and well worth sharing. He discussed the essential elements of the Elearning 2.0 environment, similar to what Tim O’Reilly has termed Web 2.0, and discussed eight essential characteristics of effective networks in this environment. I think Stephen does a wonderful job synthesizing technological innovations with learning theory and pedagogy, providing us with an excellent blueprint to use when creating and interacting in blended learning environments with learners of different ages.
