Connectivism as Epistemology Responding to questions from Vance McPherson 1) What is your response to Rita Kop's suggestion that connectivism is a new epistemology but not a new learning theory? As I understand Rita, she understands the pedagogical aspects of connectivism to have already been present in constructivism, and hence, connectivism is not proposing something new when it comes to giving guidance to instructional staff. There are overlaps to be sure, however: - criticisms of a teaching practice, which may be grounded if working in a constructivist perspective, are not grounded in a connectivist environment. Connectivism is *definitively* a learning theory, or more accurately, incorporates learning theories (specifically, theories about how connections are formed in networks). It suggests some teaching theories (I have capsulized them as 'to teach is to model and demonstrate' and suggested that connectivism argues for the creation of an immersive learning environment). 3) M. George and I have our debates.

An Introduction to Connective Knowledge Revised and Updated (minor corrections and typos only) and placed in MS-Word Document form, November 27, 2007. Click here. The version that follows below is the original (uncorrected) version). Yet another article, describing new forms of knowledge as probablistic, has crossed my desk today, and consequently it seems appropriate at this time to type a few words on the nature of distributed knowledge. It should go without saying that these are my own thoughts, and this discussion should not therefore be considered an authoritative reference on the subject. a. You probably grew up learning that there are two major types of knowledge: qualitative and quantitative. Distributed knowledge adds a third major category to this domain, knowledge that could be described as connective. This is more than just the existence of a relation between one entity and another; it implies interaction. This is why it is incorrect to represent distributed knowledge merely as a type of probabilistic knowledge.

Things You Really Need to Learn Guy Kawasaki last week wrote an item describing 'ten things you should learn this school year' in which readers were advised to learn how to write five sentence emails, create powerpoint slides, and survive boring meetings. It was, to my view, advice on how to be a business toady. My view is that people are worth more than that, that pleasing your boss should be the least of your concerns, and that genuine learning means something more than how to succeed in a business environment. But what should you learn? Your school will try to teach you facts, which you'll need to pass the test but which are otherwise useless. In passing you may learn some useful skills, like literacy, which you should cultivate. Here, then, is my list. 1. The most common utterance at the scene of a disaster is, "I never thought..." The prediction of consequences is part science, part mathematics, and part visualization. This is where the math and science come in. People don't think ahead. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

10 libros imprescindibles sobre comunicación digital (gratis y en PDF) « Blog del Medio > Periodismo digital > Por Pedro Ylarri Los manuales de periodismo han quedado muuuy viejos incluso para los que salimos de las universidad hace menos de diez años. La comunicación digital está cambiando la forma en la que trabajan todos los medios, aunque pocos libros hay sobre el tema todavía. Es que no existen expertos digitales porque todavía todo está en etapa de experimentación. Sin embargo, promovidos por fundaciones o institutos de prensa más que por los mismos medios y universidades, desde 2007 han comenzado a publicarse los primeros trabajos sobre la cuestión. Por suerte, muchos son gratuitos y están en PDF, entre ellos, los que aquí presentamos. Los 10 libros sobre periodismo y comunicación digital: Antonio Fumero y Genís Roca – Web 2.0 (2007) Deborah Potter – Manual de periodismo independiente (2009) Guillermo Franco – Cómo escribir para la web (2008) Fogel y Bruno Patiño – La Prensa sin Gutenberg (2008) Jorge Juan Fernández García – Más allá de Google (2008) Leandro Zanoni – El imperio digital (2009) ¡Nuevo!
