Collectivism and Connectivism

Terry Anderson, Virtual Canuck, Feb 29, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Terry Anderson and Jon Dron's take on the groups and networks distinction now explicitly includes four elements: individual learners, groups, networks and collectives. I consider groups and collectives to be two flavours of the same thing: groups are a tightly bound aggregation of individuals, while collectives are less tightly bound ("non personal" writes Anderson). That said, it makes sense to clearly delineate individual learning - far too many people confuse networks with individualism, which it is not. p.s. Terry Anderson writes to clarify that the topic of the five-journal collaboration mentioned Wednesday is 'right to education.'
