  10. 10. Source: George Siemens Quote from: http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/connectivism.htm “One of the most persuasive factors is the shrinking half-life of knowledge. The “half- life of knowledge” is the time span from when knowledge is gained to when it becomes obsolete. Half of what is known today was not known 10 years ago.”
  11. 11. Principles of Connectivism • Learning and knowledge rests in diversity of opinions. • Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources. • Learning may reside in non-human appliances. • Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known
  12. 12. Principles of Connectivism • Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning. • Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill. • Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities.
  13. 13. Important Attributes • Facilitator not the sole provider of knowledge • Facilitator not the determiner of space • High-end knowledge exchange to occur • Open Source
