This past week I researched connectivism as a learning theory. It was interesting readingGeorge Siemens and Stephen Downes the gurus of connectivism. In short, connectivism believes that “learning is ubiquitous” and that in order to “learn you must connect to a network”(Siemens, 2004). In other words, “knowledge exists everywhere and can be accessed by the learner”.
I am a sucker for a cool concept and grpahic. I've read a little on connectivism before and this article helped. Cool concept that reminds me of the Sun Microsystems quote, "The network is the computer." More and more we are the network and the network is the computer.
