Review: Place-Based Spaces for Networked Learning

Place-Based Spaces for Networked Learning by Lucia CarvalhoMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Interesting book of cases in Networked Learning. It's fun to see some familiar researcher names pop-up where you don't expect them. This book seems like it has a well-rounded selection of case studies where Networked Learning and Space intersect. Good read, even though not all of the chapters really pertained

Review: The Butcher of Anderson Station

The Butcher of Anderson Station by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Quite an interesting background story for Fred. I don't remember if I saw this on the TV show, I guess I need to rewatch. Sets up an interesting juxtaposition between Earth/Mars and the Belters, and provides some history for the Belters. View all my reviews

Review: Drive

Drive by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Interesting short novella about the person who developed the propulsion systems used in this universe (and who is mentioned in passing in the first novel). Pretty good for a world-building - I hope there is more later on talking about the history of this verse and how the belt became the belt. View all my reviews

Review: The Churn

The Churn by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Interesting novella set in the Expanse universe about the criminal elements seen on Earth at the time that the expanse takes place. Some interesting stories which show elements of day to day life outside of the squeaky clean offices of the UN. Most of the book is about people not really mentioned in the regular books, but at the end Amos

Review of The Architecture of Productive Learning Networks

The Architecture of Productive Learning Networks by Lucila CarvalhoMy rating: 3 of 5 starsI'd give it 3.5 stars if GoodReads would allow it. This is an interesting book on case studies (essentially) on how people have implemented Networked Learning in their various environments. Some examples might resonate with you, and others might be too alien. Overall I think it's a good idea book. Some chapters

Review: Leviathan Wakes

Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. CoreyMy rating: 5 of 5 stars I started reading this series because I am a fan of the show. I am amazed at how faithful the TV show is to the book. Having seen Season 1 of the show I was not really surprised at the story, but I have to say that the book adds depth to the television series (some things don't translate). Looking forward to reading more of this

Review: Exploring the Theory, Pedagogy and Practice of Networked Learning

Exploring the Theory, Pedagogy and Practice of Networked Learning by Lone Dirckinck-HolmfeldMy rating: 4 of 5 stars I liked this particular book on Networked Learning. It provided a nice balance between theory and actual practice. I think I am addicted to this Networked Learning thing.  I have a three more books on my to-read list on GoodReads, and I bookmarked the proceedings for

The Design, Experience and Practice of Networked Learning by Vivien HodgsonMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Continuing my reading into the presentation I want to do this April, and working on my readings for my dissertation proposal, here is this book.  This was quite interesting to read, and it definitely went by faster compared to another Networked Learning book I read recently. The edited

Review: Networked Learning: An Educational Paradigm for the Age of Digital Networks

Networked Learning: An Educational Paradigm for the Age of Digital Networks by Christopher JonesMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Not quite the book I thought it would be. I was expecting to read more about Networked Learning itself, but instead I think I read around networked learning: in what environment networked learning exists, and how to think about it. For example reading about learning theories

Review: Researching Society and Culture

Researching Society and Culture by Clive SealeMy rating: 5 of 5 stars Finally done! It took a while but I finished both textbooks for EDDE 805, this being the second one. Truth be told, I skimmed part of it during the semester, so now was a good opportunity to go back and read the rest of the chapters that were assigned and seemed important. Just in time for the new semester to start.

How to Prepare a Dissertation Proposal: Suggestions for Students in Education and the Social and Behavioral Sciences by David R. KrathwohlMy rating: 4 of 5 stars Finished this - maybe a little later than I expected (the semester ended a month ago :p) but it's done. Overall not a bad book. It's easy to read and it provides a lot of food for thought in terms of what you should have in your

Goodreads year-end-review

Couldn't escape the GoodRead year-end-review!I am generally very conservative when I set my reading goals each year because I tend to think of books as thick things that take a long time to get through.  However, as this year has proven again I've read more books than I expected.  If you notice, you'll see that it's a lot of comic books and star trek novels (audiobook or text-to-speech ebooks
