Connectivism as a Digital Age Learning Theory

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view.

The theory of connectivism as social learning that is networked. The framework for flipped classroom approach.

Eva Ramos's curator insight, September 28, 2013 7:45 PM

I will have to include this in my Learning theories module, perhaps.

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom

Blogging in the 21st-Century Classroom | Teaching Tefl | Scoop.it

First and foremost, student writing is improving by leaps and bounds. When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers. Not every post is perfect, but the majority are well written and free of grammar and usage issues that I am so familiar with seeing in their other work. If they become sloppy, all I need to do is politely comment about it on their blog, and I don't see it again.

How time have changed. whats your input on this?

Nalya Ovshieva's curator insight, May 8, 2013 9:03 AM

This is a useful experience of developing writing skills.  As a follow-up activity, writing by way of blogging could enable students to get a feel for the issue studied, and assume responsibity for public writing.

Blake Turnbull's curator insight, May 21, 2013 12:39 AM

First and foremost, I think it is safe to say that student writing is improving by leaps and bounds when it comes to technology. Blogs are a brilliant way to for students to keep an ongoing "journal" where they can write about whatever they want and improve their writing skills as a result. This article looks at a teacher who introduced blogging to her junior students and found huge improvements as a result. "When I read their blogs (which, by the way, are mature, insightful, funny and engaging), I don't find myself pulling my hair out over the careless mistakes they make in formal papers". Blogs are motivational and more interesting than conventional writing assignemnts, and students are consequently more open to learning from them as a result.

Computers and learner autonomy: trends and issues

Computers and learner autonomy: trends and issues | Teaching Tefl | Scoop.it

This paper reports on a study conducted by Huw Jarvis into the perceptions and practices of Thai and Emirati university students in the use of computer-based materials beyond the classroom. It explores how these students use technology to support their English language learning and offers recommendations for institutions that provide self-access centres. The paper concludes that the term mobile assisted language use may better describe how learners use technology.
