Paradygmat 2.0 – a blogging duet

April 26th, 2010 by Graham Attwell

The Pontydysgu Polish language Paradygmat blog has undergone a facelift. Two young researchers – Ilona Buchem and Joanna Wild have launched Paradygmat 2.0. Ilona and Joanna got to know each other through the first incarnation of Paradygmat! Joanna commented on Ilona’s blogposts and they soon discovered that there is much they have in common. Ilona works as a researcher in Berlin (research project Mediencommunity 2.0)  in the area of e-learning 2.0 and learning with social media in online communities. She is interested in how Web 2.0 tools can be used to enable more learner-driven, personalized, socially connected, work embedded and sustainable learning. Joanna works at the Centre for Social Innovation – ZSI in Vienna. Her scientific focus is on pedagogical issues of technology-enhanced learning for education and training, especially on aspects related to systematic planning for learning, use of Personal Learning Environments in formal and informal learning settings, and support planning for the acquisition of rich professional competences and literacies including abilities for self-regulation, collaboration, and networked learning.

Their collaboration is a good example of how Social Media can bring people together! Ilona & Joanna have started their first series of blogposts in Polish with the topic of Personal Learning Environments. They have introduced this topic with definitions of theories and best practice discussions about applications in education and experiment with new formats of blogging in duet, such as interviews, dialogs and collaborative writing. They then want to go on and discover other interesting issues about how Social Media changes education. Their goal is to connect with the Polish-speaking research community and sparkle some innovative ideas about the future of education.
