We must be prepared to learn from our students, which they are always happy to do!
Minna Kilpeläinen's curator insight, July 25, 2013 12:27 PM

Flipping roles and learning by teaching are great ways of collaboration and widening horizons. It is also about who you know, not so much what you know. Every new person has new questions and knowledge to share with you.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 4, 2:40 AM
Abstract

Interaction has always been highly valued in education, especially in distance education (Moore, 1989; Anderson, 2003; Chen, 2004a; Woo & Reeves, 2007; Wang, 2013; Conrad, in press). It has been associated with motivation (Mahle, 2011; Wen-chi, et al., 2011), persistence (Tello, 2007; Joo, Lim, & Kim, 2011), deep learning (Offir, et al., 2008) and other components of effective learning. With the development of interactive technologies, and related connectivism learning theories (Siemens, 2005a; Downes, 2005), interaction theory has expanded to include interactions not only with human actors, but also with machines and digital artifacts. This paper explores the characteristics and principles of connectivist learning in an increasingly open and connected age. A theory building methodology is used to create a new theoretical model which we hope can be used by researchers and practitioners to examine and support multiple types of effective educational interactions. Inspired by the hierarchical model for instructional interaction (HMII) (Chen, 2004b) in distance learning, a framework for interaction and cognitive engagement in connectivist learning contexts has been constructed. Based on cognitive engagement theories, the interaction of connectivist learning is divided into four levels: operation interactionwayfinding interaction,sensemaking interaction, and innovation interaction. Connectivist learning is thus a networking and recursive process of these four levels of interaction.

Alina Ghimpu-Hague's curator insight, May 8, 5:24 AM

Aims to contribute to the construction of a more nuanced framework for connectivist practice by proposing a theoretical model that integrates two of connectivism's core concepts, Wayfinding Interaction and Sensemaking Interaction, with aspects of Bloom's revised taxonomy.

Half an Hour: Connectivism as Learning Theory

Half an Hour: Connectivism as Learning Theory | connectivism | Scoop.it

What is Learning?

According to connectivism, learning is the formation of connections in a network. The learning theory, therefore, in the first instance, explains how connections are formed in a network.

But think for a moment about how this contrasts with the theories of learning offered by other theories. For example:

- in behaviourism, learning is the creation of a habitual response in particular circumstances (or as Gilbert Ryle would say, to learn is to acquire a disposition).

- in instructivism, learning is the successful transfer of knowledge from one person (typically a teacher) to another person (typically a student).

- in constructivism, learning is the creation and application of mental models or representations of the world.

 

As you can see, these are very different stories about what learning is. This is why it's diffiocult to compare theories of learning. The vocabularies are different, and they are talking about different things. Thomas Kuhn called this the incommensurability of theories.
