Connectivism – the knowledge of the connected individual

Connectivism – the knowledge of the connected individual | reading,writing, listening | Scoop.it
It maybe useful to distinguish the types of learner that we are promoting a connectivist model towards. Learners who are experienced in a particular domain can pull knowledge from a variety of sources to interact with existing schema. Having some domain knowledge already allows them to create the interaction independently.

Learner-Centred Education and Communicative Language Teaching – is it appropriate for all contexts? | ELT Consultants | reading,writing, listening | Scoop.it
What is very concerning is seeing these ‘aspirational’ curriculums being produced by developing countries as if that’s all that’s needed! The level of planning for successful implementation seems to get forgotten. The people who will deliver these educational reforms also get forgotten! Another very expensive way to push forward Education Reforms is developing materials, as if the materials on their own will do the job of educating the children.

Learning in the Age of Digital Distraction

Learning in the Age of Digital Distraction | reading,writing, listening | Scoop.it
Digital distraction is a term only those living in our Information Age might know. Being distracted by technology isn’t a new thing, but today’s tech is different. It’s personal—so personal, in fact, that we can’t imagine living our lives without it now. This is especially true of our digital youth, who didn’t inherit digital distraction but were born into it.
