Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age

      • Or, Social Contructivism.
    • constructivism
    • George Siemens
    • These theories, however, were developed in a time when learning was not impacted through technology.
    • environments
    • novel
      • This is not a change. Informal learning is how we *evolved* to learn.
    • no longer
    • learning organisms
    • know-where
    • change in human performance or performance potential
      • cognitive/psychological processes
    • A central tenet of most learning theories is that learning occurs inside a person.
    • They also fail to describe how learning happens within organizations
    • rapid evaluation of knowledge
    • act by drawing information outside of our primary knowledge.
    • We derive our competence from forming connections.
    • ‘I store my knowledge in my friends’
    • The ability to recognize and adjust to pattern shifts is a key learning task.
    • change its structure
      • Complex Adaptive Systems
    • Connections between disparate ideas and fields can create new innovations.
    • connecting specialized information sets
    • Nurturing and maintaining connections
    • Decision-making is itself a learning process.
    • knowledge management
    • Information flow
    • Social network analysis
    • This amplification of learning, knowledge and understanding through the extension of a personal network is the epitome of connectivism.
