Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 16, 7:39 PM

Have you wondered what connectivism is? This infographic, using information from Stephen Downes and George Siemens provides this definition for connectivism:

"...the thesis that knowledge is distributed across a network of connections, and therefore that learning consists of the ability to connect and traverse those networks."

What are the 8 principles? They are listed below but you will find much more information in the infographic.

1. Learning and knowledge rest in a diversity of opinions

2. Learning is the process of connecting specialized nodes

3. Learning may reside in non-human appliances

4. Capacity to know is more important than what is currently known

5. Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning

6. The ability to define connections between concepts is important

7. Currency (accurate, up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities

8. Decision-making is a learning process as information can change and what is viewed as correct one day may be incorrect the next

The second part of this infographic focuses on What Does an Online Connectist Course Look Like?

There is much information to be found in this lengthy infographic. It also includes a list of works consulted.

REVIEW: 3 Best Free Flashcard Apps for Students | Edudemic | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

: According to an article on Time.com about the best and worst learning techniques, active learning methods (e.g. writing) are far more useful for long-term retention than passive learning methods (e.g. highlighting or underline words).

One of the best ways? Surprisingly enough: flashcards, according to research from the Association of Psychological Science.

Student Perceptions of Face-to-Face and Online Discussions: The Advantage Goes To . . . | Online Learning Consortium, Inc

"Students’ assessments show a consistent preference for the face-to-face discussion but a small number of students preferred the online setting. However, what is perhaps more interesting is a minority of approximately one-third of the students who perceived no difference between the settings, or that the two settings were perhaps complementary."

By using the Wiki Summarizer web view or word cloud view students will be able to find some terms and topics that could help them alter and or direct their searches. In other words, Wiki Summarizer could help students who have a very broad research topic narrow down their searches."

Although this is about higher level coursework than middle school, the social and collaborative importance of online learning is even more paramount at the middle grade level. When you choose a computer-based curriculum, look for ways that it allows students to work together or interact with their knowledge.
