1 Learning Technologies Centre Connectivism: A Learning Theory for a Digital Age George Siemens

2 Learning Technologies Centre Whats happening? Decentralizing Democratizing Distributed Changed dynamics of what it means to know Acceleration

3 Learning Technologies Centre Learning theories A model or representation of how learning occurs

4 Learning Technologies Centre Behaviourism Black box Stimulus/Response Theorists: Pavlov, Watson, Skinner, Thorndike

5 Learning Technologies Centre Cognitivism Information processing Input, processing, storage, output Computer-modeled Theorists: Ausubel, Gagne, Bruner, Piaget, Vygotsky

6 Learning Technologies Centre Constructivism Learning is process of active construction of knowledge Learners make sense of their experiences Theorists: Bruner, Vygotsky, Piaget

7 Learning Technologies Centre Whats missing?

8 Learning Technologies Centre

9 Learning Technologies Centre Democratizing Learning In all cases? What about educational standards? Link tool with intent –Facets - Bloom, Fink, Wiggins: Integral Small pieces, anywhere, any tool, any time

10 Learning Technologies Centre Its coming undone… Things fall apart; the Center cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world (Yeats)

11 Learning Technologies Centre Decentralization and distributed representation of knowledge Critical in diverse, rapidly developing knowledge spaces Conundrum: –complex environments, without a filtered center, are overwhelming

12 Learning Technologies Centre Our current solution

13 Learning Technologies Centre Connectivism Learning as a connection-forming process (neural and external) The learning is in the network Diversity Know where…know who Pattern recognition

14 Learning Technologies Centre Learning Theories TheoryLearning modelLearning resides BehaviourismBlack boxBehaviour demonstration CognitivismComputer-modelIn the mind of the individual – processed Constructivism Creation or construction of meaning (Building) In the mind of the individual – constructed Connectivism Networks and ecologies, connections Distributed, in network

15 Learning Technologies Centre Move from creating content to creating space in which content is explored

16 Learning Technologies Centre Connectivism Taxonomy Awareness and Receptivity Connection-forming Contribution and Involvement Pattern Recognition Meaning-making Praxis

17 Learning Technologies Centre What skills are needed? 1.Anchoring 2.Filtering 3.Connecting 4.Being human 5.Creating and deriving meaning 6.Evaluation/authentication

18 Learning Technologies Centre What skills are needed? 7.Critical/creative thinking 8.Pattern recognition 9.Navigate knowledge landscape 10.Acceptance of uncertainty 11.Contextualizing
