Communication and Information Theory
This lesson describes how we can use Slime Mold to describe Networked Learning and apply that description to Classroom structure.
I have come to believe, and current research supports me on this, that our brains are quantum pattern recognition engines. Researchers have known that our brains are pattern recognition engines for as long as I've studying this. But, the current evolution of our...
This lesson suggests that we can create stable Political systems though Quantum Communication.
The ritual model of communication is a communications theory proposed by James W. Carey.
A ritual view of communication holds that we communicate not just to pass information, but more importantly, as a way to connect with others in order to maintain our communities. Updated Sept 2023.
Embrace the Anxiety A fear of public speaking is not just common; it is innate. Our ancestors had to be accepted into social groups in order to survive, instead of standing out and being alone (and then possibly being a predator’s dinner!). We have to acknowledge our...
The History of Knowledge Models and a description of the current model the Network Model and/or the Fractal Model.
The Fractal Model of Communication is the latest obvious evolution of communication Models that began with Aristotle and Shannon. Fractal Model assumes Communication is complex and dynamic, and follows fractal patterns. (Update Sept. 2023)
Successful Communities are built on Continuous Improvement, Collective Responsibility, and Goal Alignment.
This lesson describes why Successful Communities are “Learning Communities.” And describes why a commitment to continuous improvement, the development of collective responsibility, and focusing on goal alignment are so important in building a successful learning community.
This lesson, “Communication Models- Past and Future” provides the necessary background to help us develop Communication “Best Practices” for our 21st Century Hyper-Connected Digital World. (Updated August 2023)
A lesson describing the evolution of communication models from a one-way linear model of Aristotle and Claude Shannon, to the Interaction and transactional model of Schramm and Berlo, to the new Iterative Fractal Model.
