Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age - 4 views

  • Over the last twenty years, technology has reorganized how we live, how we communicate, and how we learn.
    • Denise Nichols
       
      What are some of the new theories?  What research will they be based upon?
  • The life of knowledge was measured in decades.
    • Denise Nichols
       
      Our concept of knowledge had definitely changed in this digital age of Google.
  • ...11 more annotations...
  • Many of the processes previously handled by learning theories (especially in cognitive information processing) can now be off-loaded to, or supported by, technology.
    • Denise Nichols
       
      Conrad Wolfram speaks to this idea in his TED talk about teaching real math with computers.  He states that students spend 80% of their time on calculating rather than applying math to real world problems to learn math concepts.
  • A central tenet of most learning theories is that learning occurs inside a person. Even social constructivist views, which hold that learning is a socially enacted process, promotes the principality of the individual (and her/his physical presence – i.e. brain-based) in learning. These theories do not address learning that occurs outside of people (i.e. learning that is stored and manipulated by technology). They also fail to describe how learning happens within organizations
  • Know-how and know-what is being supplemented with know-where (the understanding of where to find knowledge needed).
    • Denise Nichols
       
      This is one of the most important skills we can give our students in the digital age.  An intelligent person may not know the information but they know where to find the information.
    • Neil Groft
       
      Crazy to think how fast the world is changing.
    • Thomas Larkin
       
      This point was in the Wolfram Talk too
  • Constructivism suggests that learners create knowledge as they attempt to understand their experiences
  • Decision-making is itself a learning process.
    • Deb Sowers
       
      ...and do we (teachers AND parents) really teach this with our kids? ...or facilitate??
  • Learning is a continual process, lasting for a lifetime. Learning and work related activities are no longer separate. In many situations, they are the same.
    • Rich Smith
       
      I love this point
  • Experience has long been considered the best teacher of knowledge. Since we cannot experience everything, other people’s experiences, and hence other people, become the surrogate for knowledge. ‘I store my knowledge in my friends’ is an axiom for collecting knowledge through collecting people (undated).”
    • Denise Nichols
       
      This is how social media expands our knowledge.  
  • Connectivism provides insight into learning skills and tasks needed for learners to flourish in a digital era.
    • Deb Sowers
       
      Great summary statement
  • Many learners will move into a variety of different, possibly unrelated fields over the course of their lifetime.
  •  
    "Editor's Note: This is a milestone article that deserves careful study. Connectivism should not be con fused with constructivism. George Siemens advances a theory of learning that is consistent with the needs of the twenty first century. His theory takes into account trends in learning, the use of technology and networks, and the diminishing half-life of knowledge. It combines relevant elements of many learning theories, social structures, and technology to create a powerful theoretical construct for learning in the digital age."
