More on Connectivism: a response to Stephen Downes

Jon Dron, , May 08, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Jon Dron has replied to my earlier response to him. There may be some good in it, but it is buried in layers of rudeness, pedantry and continued misunderstanding of my work. I don't have to respond to claims that my work is  "more of a specious attempt at sophistry than a serious attempt to further understanding," especially from the same person who commented he only "skimmed" my work, rather than reading it. I hope others find use in Dron's post; meanwhile I direct Dron to Connectivism and Connective Knowledge where he will learn what I actually think (for example, that the 'Groups versus Network' distinction has nothing to do with strong and weak ties).
