  • 1. Connectivism
  • 2. Connectivism: a Digital Learning Theory• One of the principles of connectivism is that learning can reside in “non-human appliances”.• Ability or capacity to know more is more important than what is currently known• The ability to continuously and instantaneously make connections between people, things, ideas, etc. is critical to learning• The learner is able to choose what to learn and to make decisions based on the information given at the time, and is free to change his/her mind based upon the information given at the current time
  • 3. Connectivism: A Digital Learning Theory• Learner is constantly involved in the “cycle of knowledge”• Importance is placed on access to information – Can I find or access the information I need to complete a task or fulfill a requirement? – The end goal of learning is essentially to “do” something.• Learning is mobile.• Learning is experienced with the senses.
  • 4. Learning Devices in 2025 Questions to be Considered• How can this device be used in schools, in the community, and in the workplace to assist individuals with learning? – Have access to information on a “need to know” and instantaneous basis – Reduces, or even eliminates, the need for memorization, repetition, etc. because information can be immediately accessed • Prompts, processes, and reminders can be delivered when needed – You become your organizational system • Information is stored within the device and you must manage this information to be able to access it when needed. This becomes the focus
  • 5. Learning Devices in 2025• Puts individual directly responsible for the information they receive and how they choose to use it, and what they choose to do with it after it’s been used• Device could become an extension of the learner
