Connectivism_JRBM

  1. 1. A Learning Theory for the Digital Age Source: http://it-sector.blogspot.ca/2010/04/andstill-they-hurt.html Presenters: Brad Moffat & Jennifer Rimnyak
  2. 2. • George Siemens Source: http://socialmediatoday.com/erasersm/10 8658/connectivism-and-connectiveknowledge-george-siemens-stephendownes • Steven Downes Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steph en_Downes
  3. 3. • Knowledge is growing exponentially • Computers can perform cognitive functions for us • Learning communities and organizations as complex networks • Advent of social media and informal learning
  4. 4. • Learning is making connections between “nodes”. • information, people, machines, images, feelings, just about anything. • Students learn to build, adjust and maintain the strength and complexity of connections. • Learning to handle larger volumes of volatile nodes produces - emergent properties
  5. 5. • 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. Source: Siemens (2004)
  6. 6. • 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. Source: Siemens (2004)
  7. 7. • Teacher as network hub/Teacher as curator • Influences & shapes the network • Facilitates and nurtures connections (human/nonhuman) • Not the sole content expert Source: http://www.dobleveta.com/marketing-de-
  8. 8. • Dialogue is the platform for collaborative thinking • Constant exposure to new, conflicting, current ideas • Openness and shared experiences & resources • Enhances network diversity • Strengthens network connections Source: http://www.quadmediaventures.com/
  9. 9. • Static knowledge acquisition – no longer main goal of education • Focus shifts to SKILLS for the modern world: • “Know-where” • Using your network effectively • Broadening your network • Evaluating “worthiness” • Pattern recognition • Synthesis • Negotiation Source: http://djtech.wikispaces.com/ Bloom's+Taxonomy
