Connectivism: Bearing a Heavy Node

Connectivism: Bearing a Heavy Node | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
(W)ith the digital age, a new theory of learning has emerged called Connectivism. it is a theory advanced by George Siemens that is based on the following trends:Many learners will move into a variety of different, possibly unrelated fields over the course of their lifetime.

Informal learning is a significant aspect of our learning experience. Formal education no longer comprises the majority of our learning. Learning now occurs in a variety of ways – through communities of practice, personal networks, and through completion of work-related tasks.

Learning is a continual process, lasting for a lifetime. Learning and work related activities are no longer separate. In many situations, they are the same.

Technology is altering (rewiring) our brains. The tools we use define and shape our thinking.

The organization and the individual are both learning organisms. Increased attention to knowledge management highlights the need for a theory that attempts to explain the link between individual and organizational learning.

Many of the processes previously handled by learning theories (especially in cognitive information processing) can now be off-loaded to, or supported by, technology.

Know-how and know-what is being supplemented with know-where (the understanding of where to find knowledge needed).
