Rhizomatic learning via websites

roots

Here is an interesting take on using student websites and blogs for learning. Nguyen Minh Trang describes how students can be encouraged to build their own knowledge repositories and interact with each other. The learner needs are managed by the learners themselves (self-regulation), the learners’ creativity and social skills are developed, as well as their critical thinking. The personal learning structure that the learners create is seen as a root (rhizomatic) system where different elements are interrelated and, supposedly, feed the whole knowledge network. It’s a very general text, but can be quite useful if you need to consider the theoretical background of a similar activity or are looking for a new approach to try.

So, how are your rhizomes today?
