I have notes all over the place on Community as Curriculum but can’t resolve into anything coherent.
While reading Jenny Mackness Rhizomatic Learning – A Pedagogy of Risk I started to realize a feeling of anticipatory observation like my head we cleared of conclusions waiting for something. This has happened before in MOOCs where I become un-tethered to the topic by a kind of overload. Sometimes it feels like hitting a level where any idea is genuine and worth chasing after and sometimes the voice say “be quiet and watch.”
At one time this seemed like simple overload. Now it feels like a beginning strategy to alternate states of attentiveness in an open field of learning. Or maybe it’s just my brain reacting to more input than can be processed?
Without being told what to learn or how to go about it there seems an obvious need come to a standstill to reorient once in a while. Except what am I orientating to? Time for quiet.
