'Connectivism': Creating Learning Communities

Balthas Seibold, OLPC, Sept 28, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Short, crisp and well-written article on connectivism connecting it to Albert Bandura’s social cognitive theory and "the early notion of 'Bildung' that sees education as the process of shaping oneself and the world as put forth by German writers and thinkers Wilhelm von Humboldt and Friedrich Schiller in the late 18th and early 19th century." I think, though, connectivism is characterized not by the Brown and Adler quote, but by this variation: "We think, therefore, we am."
