Exclamation mark Blog by Lance Wicks



The networked student/Judoka. 

For a while now I have been following the Twitter and Blog posts of a lady called Sarah Stewart, a midwife and Senior Lecturer in Midwifery at Otago Polytechnic, Dunedin, New Zealand (although she is British originally).

Midwifery and Judo are similar from what I perceive, technology has not really pierced the way it is taught yet. But it is starting to.

Sarah's Blog is a good read and I recommend it even though it has no Judo content. ;-)

In a recent post, she talked about connectivism and the networked student. I like what she had to say, hence this post.

In the post she shows this video

Which if you can't see it is here:

If you are a Judo coach, you should really go read the post over at ... dents.html

It is well written and very interesting, just replace the word student with Judoka and you'll do fine! :-)

I also recommend taking a look at this post ( ... ation.html ) which covers an evaluation of the online course she has been teaching, really interesting stuff.

Thank you for your kind comments about my blog. I am fascinated my midwifery blog has been picked up by a judo coach. Midwifery and Judo relies very heavily on face-to-face teaching, but networked learning is as important, even if what the student learns has nothing to do with our particular specialties. Cheers Sarah
