The biggest difference between agentive apprenticships and cognitive apprenticeship is the focus on growing the network and spaces of learning rather than focusing solely on strategy use by the individual learner.



cognitive apprenticeships:
-"designed to teach the process experts use to handle complex tasks p. 457"

agentive apprenticeships
-designed to support community goals through learner growth

cogntivie apprenticeship
-learning through guided experienced

agentive appretniceship

Cognitive Apprenticeship was so much about how to deliver feedback. (see the tehcnical reports from Brown, Collins, Dugiuid) and to encourage metacognitive stretgy use. Even here the metacognition was usually focused on outcome driven feedback.

If you look at you can see how these feedback loops emerge.

For these we utlized Gee's Circuit of Reflective Inquiry to operationalize how feedback occurs in agentive apprenticeship.

Increasingly times this feedback is provided my non human actors. In the IndieWeb community for example participants use parsers to check to see if their websites are built correctly. In these feedback loops are strengthened with a wide network of alumni and enthusiasts who may coem across a post byΒ  a student after it was shared by a bot.
