D & G and Connectivism
Matthias Melcher, x28’s new Blog, February 2, 2014

D & G stand for Deleuze & Guattari and relate to a nice comment from Cath Ellis: "The value of critical theory (from my point of view) is that it exposes things that the vast majority of us believe to be 'true' and 'factual' to actually be constructed and mythic." How is this relevant? Matthias Melcher writes "the core of Connectivism is that nodes have long been overrated over ties (or items over relationships). So when the Wikipedia article on Deleuze speaks about “an inversion of the traditional metaphysical relationship between identity and difference." Yes. And another part of connectivism points to the enphasis on content over context (for a lesson on that, see the post on morality).
