The classrooms are starting to introduce wiki's, blogs, skyping, podcasting, google calendar, and kaboodle just to name a few. Personally I have started to use all of these resources and I love the way the classroom is changing and so do my students.

New structures of learning: The systemic impact of connective knowledge, connectivism, and networked learning

New structures of learning: The systemic impact of connective knowledge, connectivism, and networked learning | Connectivism | Scoop.it
Since Illich's 1970 vision of learning webs, society has moved progressively closer to a networked world where content and conversations are continually at our finger tips and instruction and learning are not centered on the educator.

Learners are capable of forming global learning networks, creating permeable classroom walls.

bcegradspace08 - Con Connectivism | Connectivism | Scoop.it
Connectivisim is a powerful model of knowledge and collaboration. But as a “learning” activity and a theory about how people learn, connectivism does not support students when one of its foundations is the belief that the conduits of learning (the pipes) are more important than the content.

Why it's okay to outsource your memory to the cloud

Why it's okay to outsource your memory to the cloud | Connectivism | Scoop.it
New research seems to show that our memories are less accurate when we know the information is stored somewhere else. Some feel this is going to make us less human in some way, but I for one am glad to outsource parts of my brain.
