On the Three or Four Problems of Connectivism

Stephen Downes, Japan Times, Oct 04, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

George Siemens sent me a copy of a paper by Marc Clarà and Elena Barberà called Three problems with the connectivist conception of learning (it's behind a paywall, sorry). The same authors made the same argument against connectivism in an earlier paper, Learning online (which you can view online). And while Matthias Melcher was good enough to point out some of the problems with the former paper, I felt the argument as a whole merited a response. So yesterday afternoon I posted this article addressing their criticisms. Enjoy.
