TENEGEN LLP-LDV-TOI-2008-HU-016The Tenegen pedagogical model based onthe experiences of NETIS project.Methodology basics:"Connectivism considers learning as a process in which the role ofinformal information exchange, organised into networks andsupported with electronic tools, becomes more and moresignificant. Students can significantly improve the efficiency oftheir learning if they take part in a network, or virtual communitydealing with the given subject."
TENEGEN LLP-LDV-TOI-2008-HU-016 Begining The focus of the training model…•co-operation based teaching/learning environment,•network communication and knowledge share systems•put the connectivism learning theory into practiceThey will learn why it is so important for the NET Generation “to be connected”.

TENEGEN LLP-LDV-TOI-2008-HU-016Main elements of the methodologyTasks We used activity and practical oriented tasks to help using the softwares of the modules and WEB 2.0 applications. E-portfolios, free learning objects & personal courses in Moodle
TENEGEN LLP-LDV-TOI-2008-HU-016Obstacles of connectivism and questions of the curriculumCritical remark about the connectivism based courses:• The course can be successful for those who has strong level of IT knowledge and knows web tehcnologies well.• The connectivism methods are not applicable for formal, institutional public education.Our experiences (Tenegen survey)• Teachers don’t have up to date knowledge in the field of IT knowledge, ICT tools and web applications.• They don’t use the community cooperation, ineractive activities based on connectivism model.• Almost none of them knows about the community channels, web 2.0 tools which are important for active news and knowledge exchange (RSS, twitter, e-portfolio etc.)
TENEGEN LLP-LDV-TOI-2008-HU-016The most of the teacherssocialized in classicalclassroom-basededucation! The participants assessed the digital forms of traditional learning as the most useful components: • weekly learning instructions • books, theoretical summaries • tutorial videos They assessed the connectivism and network learning components less useful: • social bookmarking • discussion forums • games • self assesment tests
TENEGEN LLP-LDV-TOI-2008-HU-016Overall in the Tenegen Traning ModelThe traditional knowledge share methodes widen with the connectivism learningtheory aspect. eLearning1.0 and eLearning 2.0 formulas complete each other. eLearning 1.0 eLearning 2.0 This form of education, eLearning This is an information exchange and 1.0, is actually the technologically information generation based on supported variant of traditional cooperation, the students activities and knowledge distribution, the virtual associative learning into networks andextension of textbooks and classroom supported with electronic tools. In this teaching. It is the digital version of way students participate as a content traditional learning. Even in this providers in the knowledge process. environment, learning remained a passive process, managed from above or outside.
