Almost but knot quitethere yet!
Have now found out, by opening my eyes to see, that when you are in TypePad in Edit Post mode, there is a <<Previous Post and next to this a Next Post>>. What a time saver this should be if I use this function! Have found the change from Vox to Typepad hard going... have surfed the web, in my quite times this week, looking for another blog site that is fit for purpose... think I might of found one... watch this space for breaking news. Moving on as you need to.
Started reading Sheely, S. (2008) and under the heading The social construction of knowledge (p.1) Latour identifies process we seem to go through during the stages of exceptance.
Latour (1987 ) Negative modalities suggest an idea is contested and place it in the context of an ongoing debate. Positive modalities suggest an idea is settled and accepted and place it in the context of an established fact or even assumed knowledge.
Is this part of being human and when confronted with something new, I am naturally suspisious until through the process he suggest I may or may not move into a different modality? Some when viewing this process in me can percieve this to me be being a rebel or stirrer, when in fact I may be being a seaker of, but unable to at present make, sense. Or nor do I have a unquestioning framework that is comforable to except new facts or knowledge at a rate percieved as others do. I value this is me as this is who I am at present and I am who I am...

So students welcome to my world, but I'm changing... Look out for this change because I know this is happening. "Andragogy Rulz."
One of the many great things about blogging is that you can publish and at a later date go back and add more. As your understanding, knowledge grows... great the inserted text is going to be the foci of adding to this blog. I have underlined this to acknowledge incomplete post.
So this is where I'm at in the moment in the digital landscape.
Andragogy is a learning theory that is usually based on transaction. Theories of transmission work on the basis of filling deficits in student knowledge and comprehension of their environment, while theories of transaction work on the basis of addressing the immediate, practical needs of context-dependent learners. Andragogy is different from pedagogy in that it is a learning theory and not a teaching theory.
