  10. 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. 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. 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.
