  6. 6. Connectivism & PLEs/ePortfolios “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. 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. Decision-making is itself a learning process. Choosing what to learn and the meaning of incoming information is seen through the lens of a shifting reality. While there is a right answer now, it may be wrong tomorrow due to alterations in the information climate affecting the decision.” Siemens, G. (2004) Connectivism: A theory for the digital age.

  7. 7. PLE/ePortfolio & Traditional Education • Holistic approach to student engagement and self-directed learning • Learning Styles, Multiple Intelligences, Five Minds for the Future, Patterns of Knowing • Reflection on learning and practice leads to: – – – – – • Transformative learning experience Connection among experiences Rigorous scientific way of thinking Happens with interaction with others (Social Learning) Intellectual and personal attitude Promotes higher order thinking including critical thinking, deep and transformational learning and the ability to connect with networks of knowledge as needed in current, culturally competent and comprehensive healthcare of the individual, family, and community. 7
  8. 8. Student Comments (2010)…… “I am TOTALLY in love with the e-portfolio concept. I am going to keep this and work on it and put a link on my Facebook, my AOL blog and my business card. Every week in this class I feel as though I have learned something new. I cannot imagine how I have managed all of my career without being aware of this knowledge.” “I am proud of my achievements and would gladly contribute an ePortfolio and each time I reflect back to it I might get the incentive to add a new accomplishment. Effective ePortfolio practices, central and common point for the student as a person undergoing continuous development. Life is a developmental journey and I am proud of how far I have come and look forward to more.” “I am also very proud of my accomplishments and yes I would be excited to tell people, but I'm not comfortable putting everything about my life "out there" for strangers who I don't know and they don't know me. ” “I have to admit, initially I was intimidated by the whole idea of creating an ePortfolio. I am still in the process of getting comfortable with the navigation. I like the idea that this is something you can have for life and you can continue updating your life story.” http://www.lifewisdominstitute.org/learningpyramid.html 8

  10. 10. Lifelong PLE = ePortfolio With the advent of web 2.0 and 3.0 tools for use as an ePortfolio, the learner becomes central to and responsible for creating and managing their own Personalized Learning Environment (PLE). Professionals who are life-long learners are continuously learning, sharing, and receiving knowledge through many “ways of knowing. 10

  14. 14. PLE =Lifelong ePortfolios • The self-directed goals and plan of the PLE do not rely on place and time availability of a content expert. The mobile devices of today facilitate the use of the PLE approach to the education and life long learning needs of professionals in healthcare and other disciplines. • ePortfolios are an electronic repository and resource to “connect” educational and academic goals with personal and professional goals and experiences internally and with “external knowledge networks”. • Provides students the opportunity to design and develop their “Personal Learning Environment” for continued self-directed lifelong learning. 14
