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.

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

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.

Do you know the actual theories of learning? A learning theory is an attempt to describe how people learn, helping us understand this inherently complex process. (A great infographic on learning theories, including the role of connectivism!

Understanding how learning works helps both teachers and students.

Una interesante infografía sobre´teorías de aprendizaje y sus caracterísiticas. La conclusión de la misma es que el "conectivismo" es la teoría general de aprendizaje que recoge en la era digital las aportaciones de las anteriores teorías.

Interesting comparison of learning theories.
