Rose Heaney's insight:

This is a bit mind boggling & beyond my limited cognitive powers - but together maybe we can process it!  It is relevant to octel too.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, May 1, 2014 3:28 AM

"Let me review, for those who are just skimming this post:

   Connectionism - the theory describing how networks learn

   Connectivism - the theory applying that understanding to education

Whether you say one or another is or is not a theory interests me not in the least. But I would assert that (a) each is a distinct understanding of learning that can be distinguished from other approaches that genuinely are called theories, and (b) neither is widely adopted (much less consensus opinion) in learning technology, or education generally, today."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 1, 2014 12:14 PM

Networks do not learn. The agents within networks learn.

Measuring Success Is Not Easy | Higher Ed Beta @insidehighered

Measuring Success Is Not Easy | Higher Ed Beta @insidehighered | open course on Technology Enhanced Learning - ocTEL | Scoop.it
Davidson College’s first MOOC, a course on medicinal chemistry, wrapped up last month on the edX platform. Producing and delivering the MOOC required significant effort on the part of several Davidson staff and faculty members. With such an investment comes the natural question… Was it a success? Evaluating success in education of any type is difficult, and MOOCs are no different. The mountains of (often messy) data from online student activity create assessment challenges for MOOCs. Details such as page views, time of engagement with videos, and discussion board interactions are all available. In fact, each time a student clicks within the platform that interaction is recorded. Despite the opportunities posed by ample data sets, MOOC assessments are often disappointingly reduced to reporting how many students finish a course. << measuring success of moocs still a work in progress

It is wonderful to speculate. I suspect, much like his colleague Ivan Illlich, Freire would have been pragmatic in his use of digital technology.
