EVOLVING MODELS OF LEARNING - COLLECTIVE INTELLIGENCE
Instructivism, Constructivism, And Connectivism
Instructivism is definitely more teacher and institutionally centered, where policy-makers and “power-holders” create processes, resource-pools, and conditions for success.
Constructivism sees the teacher step aside to a new role as facilitator, pairing students with peers, learning processes, and another another at key moments based on data and observation while the students create their own knowledge and even early learning pathways.
Connectivism is similar to constructivism–in fact, a learner participating in connectivism would likely do so at times with an constructivist approach. The difference here lies in the central role of relationships and networks (Collective Intelligence) in connectivism. Rather than supplemental, they are primary sources.
