Connectivism: a learning theory or a theory of how to learn?

Jon Dron, Apr 30, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

So Jon Dron wrote a paper he posted yesterday in which he argues, in classic fashion, that connectivism is either trivial or wrong. Not all versions of connectivism - just my own presentation of it. So yesterday I spent some time responding to the article with a fairly detailed criticism, correcting the points where he seems to have skimmed the ample documentation, and clarifying the points he found fuzzy. (That wasn't the reason for the one-link newsletter, though - I had some other articles selected but it looks like my date function needs to be updated to match my new TinyMCE editor).
