Tactile Learning is my space for reflecting on academic innovation. Tactile? Quite frankly it’s a nice word!

  • Getting your hands dirty
  • Touching the technology – i.e. not staring at it, but trying things and then thinking about it
  • smart technologies seem very tactile
  • we’ll let’s see where it goes!


There’s an obvious connection with connectivism here. Maybe that was in the back of my mind when I chose it, but it is certainly important for my thinking now – being in touch metaphorically and literally.

Another update…

Ideas relating to ontology, place rather than space, and making tacit experience explicit have been central to my posts in the last year or so. I expect more thinking on co-operation to emerge over the next year.
