Connectivism and the i Pad

  1. 1. Connectivism and the iPad<br />Sara Bates<br />
  2. 2. Connectivism: a Digital Learning Theory<br />One of the principles of connectivism is that learning can reside in “non-human appliances”.<br />Ability or capacity to know more is more important than what is currently known<br />The ability to continuously and instantaneously make connections between people, things, ideas, etc. is critical to learning<br />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<br />
  3. 3. Connectivism: A Digital Learning Theory<br />Learner is constantly involved in the “cycle of knowledge”<br />Importance is placed on access to information<br />Can I find or access the information I need to complete a task or fulfill a requirement?<br />The end goal of learning is essentially to “do” something.<br />Learning is mobile.<br />Learning is experienced with the senses.<br />
  4. 4. The iPad as a learning device<br />How can this device be used in schools, in the community, and in the workplace to assist individuals with learning?<br />Have access to information on a “need to know” and instantaneous basis<br />Reduces, or even eliminates, the need for memorization, repetition, etc. because information can be immediately accessed<br />Prompts, processes, and reminders can be delivered when needed<br />You become your organizational system<br />Information is stored within the device and you must manage this information to be able to access it when needed. This becomes the focus<br />
  5. 5. The iPad as a learning device<br />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<br />Device could become an extension of the learner<br />
