What is needed in education is something like a Personal Learner Knowledge Graph (PLKG): a clear profile of what a learner knows. It doesn’t matter where the learner learned things – work, volunteering, hobbies, personal interest, formal schooling, etc. What matters is that learners are aware of what they know and how this is related to the course content/curriculum. In a sense, PLKG is like the semantic web or Google Knowledge Graph: a connected model of learner knowledge that can be navigated and assessed and ultimately “verified” by some organization in order to give a degree or designation (or something like it).

 

If the education system can make the transition to learner knowledge graphs, instead of mainly content, the system can start to be far more intelligent than it currently is. For example, if I’m a student who spends summer months idly consuming beverages, I will develop a different skill set than someone who spent their summer volunteering and working (see video below for a discussion I had with Steve Paikin on the Agenda). Yet when the two of us start university in fall, the system normalizes our knowledge to the curriculum. We get the same content even though we are different people with completely different skills and knowledge.

Connectivism as a Digital Age Learning Theory

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view.

The theory of connectivism as social learning that is networked. The framework for flipped classroom approach.

Eva Ramos's curator insight, September 28, 2013 7:45 PM

I will have to include this in my Learning theories module, perhaps.

This might be my new research topic. Very interesting.

So we're taking a stand here. This is all incredibly subjective, but so are the VH1 Top 100 Hair Bands Videos and those are fun,…
Pierre Levy's insight:

The good news is, many of the elements of a progressive learning environment—e.g., digital literacy, connectivism, and play—conveniently, and not coincidentally, work together. And better yet, collectively they can reduce the burden on those managing the learning because they place the learner at the center.

A natural consequence of digital and social media, transparency is the opposite of closed, traditional schooling, where the walls of the classroom are tick and the local teachers and policies govern, judge, and process everything.

Music, music, music!! I will trust the current researchers at two well-known universities. www.brainvolts.northwestern.edu/‎

Just look at all the most recent findings ranging all the way from pre-schoolers to the elderly. Let's read about their research, their conclusions, and then go practice our instruments of choice! :-)

#Apprenance Connectivism, Neuroscience, and EducationI have never been comfortable with proclamations by educators or scientists (and yes, there is a difference) about how the brain works..... (suite à lire sur le site..)

What does connected learning look like in action? It looks like Charles Raben, a 14-year-old aspiring photographer from a public school in New York City.

Connected Learning: Production-centered and Openly networked

In the summer of 2011, Charles vacationed with his father in Berlin. The young photographer was captivated by the city's art galleries and young innovative culture; so much so that he decided to enroll in a weekly German class at New York University the following summer.

 

En route to his first class, Charles caught sight of an "interesting fellow" operating the Astor Place newsstand. They struck up an unlikely conversation that deeply impacted Charles.

 

Jerry had been running his Astor Place newsstand for the past 25 years. The city of New York had recently stepped in, threatening to take away his license, based on a technicality.

 

Overcome by the man's plea for help, Charles rushed home and hopped on change.org. He'd signed petitions in the past in support of gay rights, wrongly charged criminals and the protection of wildlife. But he had never created one of his own.
