  7. 7. Construction © Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009 In social contructionism groups construct knowledge for one another, collaboratively creating a small culture of shared artefacts with shared meanings. When one is immersed within a culture of this sort, one is learning all the time about how to be a part of that culture on many levels. Source: Wikipedia
  8. 8. Connection © Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2009 In connectivism, learning involves creating connections and developing a network . It is a theory for the digital age drawing upon chaos, emergent properties, and self organised learning. (It’s not what you know but who you know) Source: Wikipedia
  9. 9. Rhizomatic Learning <ul><li>“ A rhizomatic plant has no centre and no defined boundary; rather, it is made up of a number of semi-independent nodes , each of which is capable of growing and spreading on its own, bounded only by the limits of its habitat.” </li></ul>© Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2008 Source: Cormier, D. (2008) http://davecormier.com/edblog/
  10. 10. Rhizomatic Learning <ul><li>“ “ In the rhizomatic view, knowledge can only be negotiated, [and is] a personal knowledge-creation process with mutable goals and constantly negotiated premises.” </li></ul>Source: Cormier, D. (2008) http://davecormier.com/edblog/ © Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2008

Telemachus and Mentor developed a strong relationship built on the foundations of guidance and support . The word “mentor” has become synonymous with teacher, counsellor, coach, facilitator, motivator and friend.
