Connecting to Connectivism - Learning Theory and Educational Technology

Connecting to Connectivism - Learning Theory and Educational Technology | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it

Liz McKnight and Rita Repp
Boise State University

April 2009

Abstract

In today’s hyper-connected world of education, learning theories have become a part of any discussion of what learning should and will look like for the technologically adept students. This paper explores the origin of the connectivism theory. Introduced to the education community in 2004 by George Siemens and Steven Downes, Connectivism is compared to traditional, learning theories. Current theories are identified and their limitations are explored. A brief description of the learning theories from which connectivism evolved is given along with the eight leading principles of the theory. A brief overview of what education might, could, and possibly should be; given modern students' absolute need to function in an environment centered around the constant connectivity of the internet..

Educating the Net Generation | EDUCAUSE

Educating the Net Generation | EDUCAUSE | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it

"The Net Generation has grown up with information technology. The aptitudes, attitudes, expectations, and learning styles of Net Gen students reflect the environment in which they were raised—one that is decidedly different from that which existed when faculty and administrators were growing up.

This collection explores the Net Gen and the implications for institutions in areas such as teaching, service, learning space design, faculty development, and curriculum. Contributions by educators and students are included."

Flipping and Expanding Bloom's Taxonomy

Flipping and Expanding Bloom's Taxonomy | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it

"In 1956, educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom and a group of other researchers created one of the enduring models of how learning should be structured and supported ......There is a definite place for a  flipping of Bloom’s Taxonomy in the world of education. Our understanding of  how people learn has changed and there is a premium on creativity that needs to  be encouraged. The traditional model is outdated and fails to account for some  of the realities of the 21st century. Adding a social constructivist  slant to Wright’s model helps to ensure that it won’t be outdated before it  even gains widespread acceptance." - Dr Justin Marquis

La tassonomia di Bloom rovesciata? Non tutti sembrano essere d'accordo.

Antonia Rudenstine's comment, May 4, 2013 8:22 AM
We do a lot of work with Bloom's Taxonomy and tend to emphasize that great thinking usually happens across the levels in very rapid, non-linear succession...the linear/level-like vision seems limiting.

Yong Zhao: PBL Develops Students' Creative Confidence

Yong Zhao: PBL Develops Students' Creative Confidence | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it

"What makes someone successful in the 21st century is definitely not your ability to memorize facts. What will make someone successful is your relentless capacity to innovate, to create. It's your ability to network, to make friends from your own circle and from other countries. It's your ability to see through challenges, to look for opportunities in problems, and to take action to change things instead of waiting for someone else to do something," Zhao said in an interview after his keynote.

Meanwhile, he added, the U.S. is focusing on the wrong goal by aiming for higher standardized test scores. "Fixing the horse wagon won't get us to the moon," he said, referring to the current educational system as a holdover from an outdated era. Emphasizing test scores over creativity will undermine American students' talents and confidence -- the very qualities that countries like China are trying to encourage. An "outlier" like Lady Gaga, Zhao noted, would be of no use in the village where he grew up. Yet she's become a mega-star in the U.S. because of a "tolerance for diversity of talents."

Using the web for learning and teaching – a new understanding

Using the web for learning and teaching – a new understanding | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it

 "Digital literacy in higher education is more than learning how to Google better – it needs new thinking around online engagement. What are the implications for learning and teaching when we move from perceiving the web as a collection of tools to thinking of it as a series of overlapping spaces? This was the focus of a recent Higher Education Academy event on flexible learning and online residency..." - David White

Game Changers: Education and Information Technologies | EDUCAUSE

Game Changers: Education and Information Technologies | EDUCAUSE | Engaging students in the 21st century | Scoop.it

"How can we reach more learners, more effectively, and with greater impact? Education changes lives and societies, but can we sustain the current model? New models and new technologies allow us to rethink many of the premises of education—location and time, credits and credentials, knowledge creation and sharing.

 

Game Changers: Education and Information Technologies is a collection of chapters and case studies contributed by college and university presidents, provosts, faculty, and other stakeholders. Institutions are finding new ways of achieving higher education’s mission without being crippled by constraints or overpowered by greater expectations.

Find out who is changing the game and what we can learn from their different approaches in Game Changers. Download the entire book or individual chapters and case studies."
