  • 1. Connectivism and the iPad
    Sara Bates
  • 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. The iPad as a learning device
    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. The iPad as a learning device
    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
