Why #Connectivism is not a Learning Theory « A Point of Contact

As a relatively young theory, its growth, acceptance, employment and how people actually understand Connectivism all depend partially on how it is represented.

Gallery Of Cognitive Scientists. When I create PowerPoint lectures for my classes, I like to include pictures of the researchers who are being discussed. I have found that I spend a great deal of time searching the webs for pictures of people related to course content.

This gallery is designed to be used by other people with similar lecture-building interests, in an attempt to make the whole process less time consuming. The buttons on the left take you to lists of cognitive scientists whose last name begins with the selected letter. From the list, you can be taken to a picture and, when possible, to a link to their home page and to the site from which the picture was discovered. The links on the right are to related websites.
