Communities of practice - 2 views

  •  
    Wegner's insights provide a solid foundation for understanding a community of practice. Our 'brief community' lasts a semester. Longer more enduring communities, centered on a common interest last much longer. A must read for those interested in underlying theories that support an online constructvist environment.

Three generations of distance education pedagogy | Anderson | The International Review ... - 3 views

  • This paper defines and examines three generations of distance education pedagogy. Unlike earlier classifications of distance education based on the technology used, this analysis focuses on the pedagogy that defines the learning experiences encapsulated in the learning design. The three generations of cognitive-behaviourist, social constructivist, and connectivist pedagogy are examined, using the familiar community of inquiry model (Garrison, Anderson, & Archer, 2000) with its focus on social, cognitive, and teaching presences. Although this typology of pedagogies could also be usefully applied to campus-based education, the need for and practice of openness and explicitness in distance education content and process makes the work especially relevant to distance education designers, teachers, and developers. The article concludes that high-quality distance education exploits all three generations as determined by the learning content, context, and learning expectations.
  • We conclude by arguing that all three current and future generations of DE pedagogy have an important place in a well-rounded educational experience. Connectivism is built on an assumption of a constructivist model of learning, with the learner at the centre, connecting and constructing knowledge in a context that includes not only external networks and groups but also his or her own histories and predilections.
  • t is clear that whether the learner is at the centre or part of a learning community or learning network, learning effectiveness can be greatly enhanced by applying, at a detailed level, an understanding of how people can learn more effectively: Cognitivist, behaviourist, constructivist, and connectivist theories each play an important role.

Attacks on connectivism « Jenny Connected - 2 views

  • What is it about connectivism that stirs up such strong emotion?
  • Finally the focus on whether connectivism is a theory or not detracts from what for me are the more important questions raised by Downes and Siemens and these are: How is technology changing the way we think and learn? How is technology changing the way we teach? Do we need to challenge traditional ways of working in education?
