Glossary

These definitions come from wikipedia or from my own understanding.
Don't forget SOLO Vocab
augmented reality
is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. (Think Mash Up)
digital pencils
A digital pen is an input device which captures the handwriting or brush strokes of a user, converts handwritten analog information created using "pen and paper" into digital data, enabling the data to be utilized in various applications. (My personal definition is an Ipad, Iphone, etc)
Dunbar’s Number
Dunbar's number is a suggested cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships.
e-citizenship
e-citizenship?? Why put an 'e' in front of the word citizenship. Citizenship is the philosophy that citizens should work towards the betterment of their community through economic participation, public, volunteerwork, and other such efforts to improve life for all citizens. This word will be used again as I explore the dark space between the nodes.
eportfolio
This is not an online paper portfolio. An eportfolio has similar concepts as a paper portfolio however the use has been repurposed. An eportfolio has multiple uses. eg: from a CV to a portfolio of work. An e portfolio uses multiliteracies. Even feedback can be in the form of audio or a vlog. Think youtube.
Hyperconnectivity
Check this wiki for my understanding of hyperconnectivity.
junction
My thinking is that it is a space where several nodes come together. It is likened to a central transport system. A place where you can give and receive information to and from a variety of sources.
metcalfes law
is related to the fact that the number of unique connections in a network of a number of nodes can be expressed mathematically.
multiliteracies
Text is not the only and main way to communicate. Text is being combined with sounds, and images and being incorporated into movies, billboards, almost any site on the internet, and television. All these ways of communication require the ability to understand a multimedia world. (New London Group.)
networked individualism
Online connection to a variety of sources but the dark space in between has been ignored. eg: speaking but no-one is listening.
nodes
is a social structure made up of individuals (or organizations) called "nodes", which are tied (connected) by one or more specific types of interdependency
self efficacy
roughly corresponds to a person's belief in their own competence. Sometimes it is 'thinking about thinking.'
self organised learning environment
Students take responsibility for their learning and put this into successful actions. -Steve Wheeler.
social network analysis
loosely defined: SNA-connote complex sets of relationships between members of social systems at all scales, from interpersonal to international.
social media landscape
