Guerrilla Connectivism: 10 Tips for Taking Control of your Education

Kevin Stranack, Jan 24, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have long been  a fan of guerilla tactics to take control of your own learning and education, so I'm totally sympathetic with Kevin Stranack's post. Stranack writes, "We, as students, don’t need to wait for our instructors to do this for us, and instead, we can take control of our own education by following a few connectivist-inspired tips" and then proceeds to list a number of them. Most of the pointers offered by Stranack involve reaching out and communicating with other students, but I would go further, reconceptualizing the learning activity itself - turning a boring slide presentation, for example, from a passive experience into active learning writing activity summarizing the main points.
