Unit 3: Transparency in Online Education - Activity 3 -Review AB

Hello, teacher and classmates.

Again the choice of the AB and LO proposed by the teacher, was not an easy task. I also want to congratulate the work done by colleagues who strive to show different ways to present their work. It is very enriching.

My choice of AB was determined taking into account the following criteria:
- The diversity and quality of literature presented;
- Relevance of the bibliography, it goes against the relevant topic, showing the core content;
- Visual presentation of selected bibliography.

Using the criteria of choice, will choose the AB created by Paula Silva. Paula begins with an introduction, which explains a general bibliography presented. After each document in the literature, made a summary of its essence, making a personal assessment of the Rest period document. In some images relevant documents submitted and presented at the end of a recent representative of transparency online, created by colleagues in our masters program.

In the article by Dalsgaard, C. & Paulsen, M. F. (2009). Transparency in Online Education Cooperative authors explore the potential of social networks on online education Cooperative.They argue and demonstrate how cooperative learning can be supported by transparency. To show that various studies and experiments.

In the article by Dalsgaard, C. (2009). Supporting a Transparency Among Students, we can analyze the results of a case study that highlights blogs and social bookmarking as facilitators of transparency in university. As such, tools that make them more visible to the learning community.

In the article by Dalsgaard, C. (2008). Social networking sites: Transparency in online education, the author explains how the social networks can be used for the sharing of teaching resources in order to allow students using them, and be able to get visions of work of other colleagues. Social interaction is essential, however we must distinguish social network of discussion forums, social networks being the first point of departure.
In the article by Anderson, T. (2008). Groups vs Networks in higher education, there is this that the significance of networks, since they offer greater opportunities in social and educational. The power of these networks is present in their tools and learning activities, which are motivating the development and implementation of e-learning as a teaching practice in educational institutions.

In this blog Siemens, G. (2009). Teaching Learning How to Clear, the author describes personal experiences in the process, where he became an apprentice . Give examples of transparency in education and quotations that evoke the value of education as an example: '"Watching others learn is an act of learning"

In the sixth reference, Paula chose a work of our Master, represents an example of transparency in the education to which we are linked. Through a LMS tool, able to work individually or in groups and share information that we find relevant to share. We got through it know our work colleagues and the work.


Hence, the analysis of selected AB, I believe that reading these articles and blog's got to realize what is transparency in education, the necessity of its existence to the process of online learning.

  1. It's true Joaquim, what you say in last sentence: I believe that reading these articles and blog's got to realize what is transparency in education". It's better to see and feel what transparency is, instead od just reading about it. This as been a great learning experience to share ideias and comments with the rest of the colleges.
    Good job on the review!
