Abstract

This paper reports the findings of a meta-interpretation into of the emergence of a new learning design concept and its positionality within the learning and teaching theory landscape. The purpose of this examination of the concept of ‘connectivism’ is to ‘dig for nuggets’ and contribute new knowledge to the current debate about the validity of ‘connectivism’ as a new and emerging learning theory. The deconstruction and systematic analysis of the concept ‘connectivism’ is based on a newly developed coding system that is also applied to other, established learning theories, providing a comparative evaluation of commonly agreed properties of well-known learning theories. The results of our analysis are discussed and possible implications for practice and further research are outlined.

J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, December 21, 2013 11:09 AM

With MOOCs on the mind we have to see if Connectivism is a theory or just a new twist on Constructivism. Most recognize that we are facing a new world of instructional modalities but that we just don't have enough data to know what it all means yet.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 21, 2013 1:12 PM

Who is connnecting? That is an important question. I know a number of people who connect and what they have to offer is limited at best. An important consideration is creating praxis as we make meaning of theory in real-life situations.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, April 11, 12:45 PM
Over the last decade, eLearning has grown as the preferred means of learning worldwide – both in education as well as the corporate world. This popularity and success is due to the evident fact that eLearning is more cost effective and convenient, while increasing opportunities for perineal learning – a definite need for the modern corporate learner today. eLearning has several advantages over traditional learning, especially when coupled with technology-aided delivery which opens up the opportunity of learning anytime and anywhere. Learners can access online course material, irrespective of time and place. For adult learners, reflection is a huge part of learning, which encourages assimilation of information – turning it into knowledge which they can apply at work. eLearning allows learners to reflect on the learning materials and their responses, and permits them to work at their own pace, regardless of race, sex, disability, or appearance. A number of learning theories can be applied in eLearning, and developers have to choose the one that suits the needs of their learners as well as align well to the strength of a technology-aided medium. The application of Gagné’s 9 Events of Instruction in eLearning lists the following events of instruction:
