Knowledge, Learning, Community
Links to an interesting back-and-forth on the question of whether connectivism is a (new) learning theory. As usual (which is an interesting comment in itself) I feel the critics have not read widely enough. "If any part of the theory were relevant it would be the recognition of the potential of networking and connecting, but these are ways of learning, the pedagogy. Otherwise, the theory does not describe how we learn, how we make the connections inside of ourselves nor does it describe what we learn." Indeed? Have we been totally silent on these issues?
