Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, October 28, 2013 4:30 AM

Connectivism offers a theory of learning for the digital age that is usually understood as contrasting with traditional behaviourist, cognitivist, and constructivist approaches. This article will provide an original and significant development of this theory through arguing and demonstrating how it can benefit from social constructivist perspectives and a focus on dialogue. Similarly, I argue that we need to ask whether networked social media is, essentially, a new landscape for dialogue and therefore should be conceived and investigated based on this premise, through considering dialogue as the primary means to develop and exploit connections for learning. A key lever in this argument is the increasingly important requirement for greater criticality on the Internet in relation to our assessment and development of connections with people and resources. The open, participative, and social web actually requires a greater emphasis on higher order cognitive and social competencies that are realised predominantly through dialogue and discourse. Or, as Siemens (2004) implies, in his call to rethink the fundamental precepts of learning, we need to shift our focus to promoting core evaluative skills for flexible learning that will, for example, allow us to actuate the knowledge we need at the point that we need it. A corollary of this is the need to reorient educational experiences to ensure that we develop in our learners the ability “to think, reason, and analyse.” In considering how we can achieve these aims this article will review the principles of connectivism from a dialogue perspective; propose some social constructivist approaches, based on dialectic and dialogic dimensions of dialogue, which can act as levers in realising connectivist learning dialogue; demonstrate how dialogue games can link the discussed theories to the design and performance of networked dialogue processes; and consider the broader implications of this work for designing and delivering sociotechnical learning.

Vision for the Future: The Other 21st Century Skills

Vision for the Future:  The Other 21st Century Skills | SciTEACH21Cscoop | Scoop.it

"Having a vision for the future is an natural extension of Hope and Optimism, another 21st century skill I proposed.  A vision for the future enhances hope and optimism. To clarify, having a vision for the future is identifying and taking steps toward fulfilling one’s dream.  It goes beyond and is qualitatively different than identifying what one wants to be when one grows up or thinking about college.  It is about dreams."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 13, 1:08 PM

As we look at education today ask yourself does the process support students ability to dream their vision? Do we promote a vision of the future as they move through the school system (and think K - 16)?

This post explores these issues and provides resources to help you explore them.

Find a link to Seth Godin's book Stop Stealing Dreams (What is School For?). Check out a video where students share their dream of the future. Consider the guiding questions provided to help your students think about the future (and see two answers from students in Grades 5-6). There are many resources to help you and your class think about this issue and how it relates to the 21st century.

From my experience foundation level (bridging to degree and below) students who have a clear sense of direction (vocational) are generally more motivated and engaged than those who don't know who they are, what types of vocations they are suited to and how to get there.

13 Concrete Examples Of Better Feedback For Learning

13 Concrete Examples Of Better Feedback For Learning | SciTEACH21Cscoop | Scoop.it

In September 2012 Grant Wiggins had an article published 'Educational Leadership' (which is posted in this Scoop.it). That article was widely read and this article goes one step further, provide 13 detailed examples of how to provide better feedback for learning. 

The examples range from a welding class with a performance task, to a 6th grade teacher working with students on peer review and self-assessment to 1st graders working on a map of the school. An additional 10 examples are provided.

This post not only provides examples but will probably spark you to look at how you provide feedback and come up with some new ideas to use with your students.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, July 19, 2013 1:53 AM
  1. Learning and knowledge rests in diverse opinions; Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources
  2. Learning may reside in non-human appliances
  3. Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known
  4. Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning
  5. Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill
  6. Currency (accurate and up-to-date knowledge) is the intent of all connectivist learning activities
  7. Decision-making is itself a learning process. Choosing what to learn and the meaning of incoming information is seen through the lens of a shifting reality. While there is a right answer now, it may be wrong tomorrow due to alterations in the information climate affecting the decision

Fascinating insight into the original thinking behind MOOCs, connectivist learning and 'meeting the knowledge needs of a complex era' by one of the originators of MOOCs and author of the Connectivism learning theory. Open Badges are mentioned in relation to accreditation in this complex era and for amplifying the value of it through micro-credentialling - targeting specific tasks rather than a broad knowledge system.
