  6. 6. Connectivism: A Learning Theory for a Digital Age George Siemens  “Nurturing and maintaining connections are needed to facilitate learning”   Connectivism is driven by the understanding that decisions are based on rapidly altering foundations.

The ability to recognize when new information alters the landscape based on decisions made yesterday is also critical. (George Siemens)
