  • 9. Learning Theory for theDigital AgeConnectivism
  • 10. Source: George Siemens Quote from:http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/connectivism.htm“One of the most persuasive factors is theshrinking half-life of knowledge. The “half-life of knowledge” is the time span fromwhen knowledge is gained to when itbecomes obsolete. Half of what is knowntoday was not known 10 years ago.”
  • 11. Principles of Connectivism• Learning and knowledge rests in diversity ofopinions.• Learning is a process of connecting specializednodes or information sources.• Learning may reside in non-human appliances.• Capacity to know more is more critical thanwhat is currently known
  • 12. Principles of Connectivism• Nurturing and maintaining connections is neededto facilitate continual learning.• Ability to see connections between fields, ideas,and concepts is a core skill.• Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is theintent of all connectivist learning activities.
