Connectivism: Learning Theory for the Future?

Connectivism: The pipe is more important than the content within the pipe. Our ability to learn what we need for tomorrow is more important than what we know today.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, May 1, 2013 10:44 PM

It is my view that one of the most significant statements made by George Siemens is this one: "As knowledge continues to grow and evolve, access to what is needed is more important than what the learner currently possesses." 

 

The role of teaching (and learning) then needs to shift in several ways to support this. How do we support students in selecting, discerning, organising this information and critically reflecting on it? How do we support students in creating new ways of evidencing their learning? How do we encourage students to create content themselves that adds to this growing and evolving abundance of information and knowledge generation?

 

"The Network is the Learning"....another of George Siemens' statements that resonates so well with me.

Quizá no sea aún una teoría del aprendizaje en sentido estricto del término, pero su influencia es innegable. Es, sin duda, un intento de articular una teoría del aprendizaje que entiende la Red. Y ese es el mejor comienzo
Carlos Lizarraga Celaya's curator insight, May 10, 2013 12:46 PM

Connectivism is the integration of principles explored by chaos, network, and complexity and self-organization theories.

In a knowledge economy, the flow of information is the equivalent of the oil pipe in an industrial economy…

The pipe is more important than the content within the pipe. Our ability to learn what we need for tomorrow is more important than what we know today. A real challenge for any learning theory is to actuate known knowledge at the point of application. When knowledge, however, is needed, but not known, the ability to plug into sources to meet the requirements becomes a vital skill. As knowledge continues to grow and evolve, access to what is needed is more important than what the learner currently possesses.

I am taking a course from Howard Rheingold at the moment.  He is very skilled at building a community of colearners.

Communications & Society: Connectivism and Complexity

Communications & Society: Connectivism and Complexity | iEduc | Scoop.it
As I recall, I was thinking about networking as part of the DNA of connectivism, and the DNA comment elicited a comment from Stephen Downes about my confused attempt to reconcile connectivism and essentialism.

This is a helpful abstraction of networking, but it misses much that is interesting about networking: the dynamism which results from the nodes of the network engaging each other and the larger eco-system. This dynamic engagement is complexity. Rather, this is what I mean by complexity, and I think that complexity is one of the amino acids in the DNA of connectivism. As with the concept of networking, complexity is not unique to connectivism. A scholar can follow a constructivist or behaviorist agenda, for instance, and incorporate both networking and complexity. However, I think a scholar can still be a constructivist or behaviorist without accounting for networking and complexity. I don't think that a connectivist can do so. These two concepts are part of the DNA.

[...] complexity is the degree to which any node in a network can recognize, process, and respond to information from the other nodes in its network and from other networks at different scales.

[...] patterns are the information that each node can process, or understand, and can then respond to.
