Principles of Connectivism (Siemens, 2005)1. Learning and knowledge rests in diversity of opinions2. Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or informationsources3. Learning may reside in non-human appliances4. Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known5. Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continuallearning6. Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill7. Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivistlearning activities8. Decision-making is itself a learning process
