Connectivism

One of the principles of connectivism is that you share. You offer your knowledge, skills, abilities, talents, materials, resources to someone else, free of charge. For nothing in return, you give it away. Now, a true capitalist would smell something fishy in this idea. As a matter of fact, it would not be unusual to hear something like, “There’s something rotten in the state of Denmark.” Like I said, fishy.

What does teaching for meaningful learning mean What does teaching for meaningful learning mean This paper teaching for meaningful learning provides a rich review of the different strategies and methods of teaching and learning to achieve meaningful learning. Complex projects and activities which challenge learners to engage in active authentic learning – based on authentic pedagogy and likely a constructivist and or connectivist learning approach provides opportunities for learners to sensemake (Siemens, 2012) and learn how to solve real life problems. Besides, the meaningful learning prepares learners to keep abreast of the changing knowledge ecology and learning landscape, which is often required both in the business world and personal knowledge development. This aligns well with the connectivist principles where learning needs to stay current: Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities. Decision-making itself is a learning process.
¿Qué hace la gente en línea en el mundo de hoy, ¿cómo obtienen en línea, y en lo que acelera? Un nuevo informe de la Guía Internacional de Empresas muestra cómo cómo millones de personas en el mundo acceden a la internet, donde el internet es el más rápido, y los dispositivos con los que se conectan, tras el primer año, cuando hay dispositivos de Internet móviles más que los humanos. Ver esta infografía para ver qué regiones lideran el mundo en términos de las tasas de acceso a Internet, que consume lo que en línea y los sitios web más populares de la región.

In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to the dematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves.

Connectivism and Ideology Too | Connectivism Connectivism and Ideology Too | Connectivism I'm still troubled by some of the claims that James Berlin makes in Rhetoric and Ideology in the Writing Class, but I think I prefer to start with what makes sense to me. I see that a connectivist rhetoric – and I just realized that defining such a rhetoric is probably the point of this post – belongs to the rhetorical tradition that Berlin calls social-epistemic. First, why wouldn't a connectivist rhetoric belong to the cognitive or expressionistic schools? To explain why, I will borrow an insight from Saul Newman who, in his book From Bakunin to Lacan: Anti-Authoritarianism and the Dislocation of Power (2001), identifies essentialism as the key political and, perhaps, philosophical problem of our age. Essentialism states that for any entity there are "inherent characteristics or properties which any entity of that kind must possess," and most importantly, these inherent, defining properties "are universal, and not dependent on context."

Linda Castaneda emailed me. “As I have already told you, Jordi Adell and myself, are editing a book about PLEs in Spanish. It is not a commercial book, we are going to edit some hard copies for free and an open ebook in the Web. The idea is to offer an overview of PLE for teachers (as complete as possible), in plain, trying to explain what PLE means in general but, specially, what PLEs mean for formal education.

Cybergogue: Media and Technology Theory | Leadership in Distance Education In Fahy’s chapter on the characteristics of interactive online learning media, a meta-analysis of research related to media and technology in learning conducted by Bernard, et al. (2009). They concluded that, “First, media research confirms that what the learner does with media is more important than what the teacher does; second, in terms of student learning outcomes, the teaching experience of the instructor does not matter as much as the instructor’s experience with technology."

From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning.

By Claude Almansi Editor, Accessibility Issues ETCJ Associate Administrator The International Review of Research in Open and Distance Learning (IRRODL) has dedicated a special issue to “Connectivism: Design and Delivery of Social Networked Learning” (March 2011), edited by George Siemens (Athabasca University, Canada) and Grainne Canole (Open University, UK). This special issue is not meant as a definitive sum on connectivism but rather, as Terry Anderson, editor of IRRODL, put it in his announcement on the Instructional Technology Forum mailing list: … a challenge and request that we spend more effort into trying to understand if connectivism has approaches and delivers important insights and practical designs into the increasing networked learning context in which we function.

Connectivism and Connective Knowledge: Essays on meaning and learning networks | Leave Those Kids Alone! Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture. Creating “Collaborative Learning Communities”
The theory of Connectivism provides new insight into what it means to facilitate learning in the 21st Century. Those responsible for teaching and training need to incorporate instructional strategies that match learner expectations and the physical changes that technology has wrought on the human brain. This is an ongoing challenge and one that does not have a single right answer or pre-packaged solution. The application of Connectivism to teaching and learning requires a thorough rethinking of the educational process and the role of the teacher, student, and technology in that process. Siemens has done a good job laying out the core principles of Connectivism in his 2004 piece, "Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age." His list is as follows: What Does Connectivism Mean for Education?

People interested in Massive Open Online Courses will probably be aware of the research by Helene Fournier and me on Personal Learning Environments and MOOCs. We carried out research in the MOOC PLENK2010 (The MOOC Personal Learning Environments Networks and Knowledge that was held in the fall of 2010). The data collected on this distributed course with 1641 participants has been massive as well. Its analysis has kept us and some fellow researchers busy over the past year.

Valuable information produced by researchers in many EU-funded projects will be shared freely as a result of a Pilot on Open Research Data in Horizon 2020. Researchers in projects participating in the pilot are asked to make the underlying data needed to validate the results presented in scientific publications and other scientific information available for use by other researchers, innovative industries and citizens. This will lead to better and more efficient science and improved transparency for citizens and society.
