Connectivism


This post is written by Viplav Baxi.

Well, it's Week 5 of the Massively Open Online Course hosted by George Siemens and Stephen Downes on a new epistemology and theory of learning called Connectivism. At its core is the proposition that all knowledge is networked and the process of learning is really the process of connecting. I think it is a must for all people interested in learning theories to look at some of the content on the Wiki (http://ltc.umanitoba.ca/wiki/Connectivism) especially as a great learning activity is the comparison with the traditional theories (behaviourism, cognitivism and constructivism).

Also, there are a few posts on the blog I specially created for this "course" at http://learnoscck08.wordpress.com but you can simply search for posts related to this course using the keyword CCK08. Enjoy!
