"I would simply urge UNESCO to respect the wishes of those people who are not commercial publishers or multi-million-dollar educational institutions, to recognize the intent of people creating NC-licensed resources to ensure they can be accessed for free, and to recognize resources licensed with a NC clause as OERs with equal standing."

Abstract: Alongside (new models of pedagogy) has emerged a new learning theory, connectivism, which its proponents consider provides a new approach to learning and to knowledgeand that posits the unsuitability of existing theory. The basis of this model in chaos theory leads to questions of how it facilitates this use of a initiallynatural science based theoretical model, and the ways in which it differs formexisting learning theories, particularly social constructivism. Using Expansive learning as a comparative for the links to two underpinning theories, chaos theory and zero learning, this literature review attempts to locate the ways inwhich chaos theory is prevalent and the extent to which connectivism does offer a new theory of learning.
