2. Emergent Learning Model OR Smart Mobs plus Everything is Miscellaneous means Here Comes Everybody 3. Emergent Learning Model Topics; What is the Emergent Learning Model? Open Context Model of Learning Architectures of Participation Bologna Process Informal, Non-formal, Formal Learning Reference Document 4. Emergent Learning Model (ELM) What is ELM? Rethinking the relationship between informal and formal learning in a changing, networked, learning world ELM is framed in terms of i2020, a post Bologna Process reframing of the relationship between Informal, Non- formal, Formal Learning BUT With Informal driving Formal 5. Emergent Learning Model ELM was a development of the Open Context Model of Learning (2007) which built on several earlier models of learning, such as Community Development Model of Learning, Digital Divide Content Strategy & the Ecology of Resources By the Learner-Generated Contexts Group 6. Emergent Learning Model Learner-Generated Contexts; A group attempting to address the question of how Web 2.0 will change learning given; Social Networks User-Generated Content From Access to Content to Context or a coincidence of motivations leading to agile configurations 7. Post-scarcity Ecology of Resources model Making Curricula, Organisation, Administration Adaptive 8. Emergent Learning Model Open Context Model of Learning; A Pedagogy for Open Learning or Coincidence of Motivations leading to Agile Configurations Outlined by the PAH Continuum; Pedagogy; Subject Disciplines Andragogy; Collaboration Heutagogy; Playing with Form 9.

Why? Why Not? 10. Emergent Learning Model Needs Architecture of Participation Adaptive Institutions working across Collaborative Networks Beyond the Institution as a Physical Location Beyond buildings as the demarcation of learning Communities of Interest & of Practice or Smart Mobs becoming Landscapes of Interest & Networks of Practice enabling Educational Institutions responsive to learning processes 11. Emergent Learning Model Emergent Learning Model Builds on LGC research & theory & applies to it educational policy targets Designed to meet EU i2015 & i2020 Post-Bologna Process targets of Integrating; Informal, Non-formal & Formal Learning Developing City-Regions of Knowledge 12. Emergent Learning Model Rethinking Informal Learning (Libraries, Museums) Non-formal (Training, post-compulsory) Formal Learning (Institutions & Quals) As Social Processes (People) Content (Created & Consumed) Context (Quality Assurance) 13. Emergent Learning Model Rethinking Informal Learning Focus on the social process that support learning; i.e. People Not places or type or policy ownership or targets (DfES) Informal Learning is the social processes that support learning in any context 14. Emergent Learning Model Rethinking Non-formal Learning Focus on the content that supports learning (design for appropriation) OR The content-creation that reflects learning (Learner or User-generated) Non-formal Learning is Structured Learning resources without formal learning outcomes 15. Emergent Learning Model Rethinking Formal Learning Traditional focus on the institution with little concern on what happened within; concerned with Estates Management OR its where the money is Formal Education (!) is the process of administering & quality assuring accreditation & qualification 16. Emergent Learning Model Flow & Emergence Can we use this re-conceptualising to design for a flow of learning? Do we have to start with the institution & then impose processes on learning or Can we start with the social processes of learning & design for emergent behaviours structured by resources? Choice between Hierarchies & Networks 17. Emergent Learning Model Informal Learning Phase; enabling models of learner-self- organisation that can be recognised post-hoc Needs; new learning literacies Non-formal Learning Phase; Resources designed for learner-appropriation. Content-creation toolkits easily accessible and quality assured (templates? guides?) Needs new models of content for learning appropriation Formal Learning Phase; support resource provision, mapping to accredited learning outcomes, quality assuring processes, linking to system needs Needs institutions concerned with security & authentication Flexible processes of accreditation and assurance 18. Emergent Learning Model Informal Learning Phase; means People are how we scaffold organisations Because; learning is social Non-formal Learning Phase; means Resources are how we scaffold learning Because; learning is different to knowledge construction Formal Learning Phase; means Institutions are how we scaffold accreditation Because; Networks work differently to hierarchies 19. Emergent Learning Model Emergent Learning in Practice; Ambient Learning & self-accreditation Ambient Learning City Manchester; Lessons; new metaphors, Aggregate then Curate, local and personal WikiQuals; Lessons; Affinity not supervision, we are rhizomatic (enabling networks), solve the problem that annoys you most 20. Emergent Learning Model Why does this matter? 1) Rethinking Roles and Processes 2) Change Socio-Economic Context 21st Century Evolving changes in the socio-technical context Web As Resource (New Literacies of Access) Web as Platform (Permanent Beta & new Content) Web as Location (Identities & New Contexts) OR It is where the students are 21. Emergent Learning Model The Answers are already here! We are just asking the wrong Questions... 22.
