This week Dave challenges us to create an artifact that could be added to some form of guide that explains what rhizomatic learning is all about.
My first thought on this is does an artifact equal practical? That is, if we create an artifact does that mean the we are creating something that is practical?
I am reminded by the first artifact I came across in the pre-Rhizo15 discussions – a recipe to help people figure out how to participant in open learning. Maha writes about it here and the actual document is here. I think this is a great starting point for a practical guide to rhizomatic learning.
What strikes me as particularly interesting here is that the beginning is the end and the end is the beginning. We started this before rhizo began and yet it represents also where we have come – although I think that might only be true if the new voices in rhizo join the conversation and add to the recipe. So, although I’m not the original author of the recipe, I will still encourage anyone who hasn’t jumped in, to join the conversation in the Google Doc here – https://docs.google.com/document/d/14-V6ZQgIQ3Mpq6QCPvvFr2y-45zdzxIh721yPSlHbyo/edit
