Keith Brennan - In Connectivism, No One Can Hear You Scream: a Guide to Understanding the MOOC Novice

Keith Brennan - In Connectivism, No One Can Hear You Scream: a Guide to Understanding the MOOC Novice | Educational Technology in Higher Education | Scoop.it

This article is an attempt to address a possible gap in Connectivist thinking, and its expression in cMOOCs. It’s to do with the experience of technology novices, and unconfident learners in cMOOC environments. It comes from a phenomenon, and experience I identified in a recent MOOC I participated in and the experience is best described like this:
To learn in a cMOOC you need to connect.
To connect in a cMOOC you need to learn.

Russell Waldron's curator insight, January 30, 2013 4:44 AM

Does this article miss a crucial point? The critiques (Verhagen, Kerr, Branon and Downes) argue that Siemens has not said anything new about how an individual learns. But in C21st, it is an interaction of many people and artefacts and situations - not the individual - that produces action, speech, invention. And when we think of that aggregate as an actor, what shall we call the self-organising enhancement of capacity to interpret and use information, if not Learning?

I never found a paradigm. If a set of techniques and strategies that can end up converging on a theory. And an extension of constructivism

"Although my intention is to make things simpler, I want add one more term before tackling the formal and informal divide. I want to distinguish between learning that is intentional and learning that isn't."

Good theories work together in some form of harmony. It is not always smooth. Humans will still construct their learning in social settings and with people who challenge them.
