Free Learning and Control Learning: On the So-Called Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Text of my presentation to SURF Education Days, 13 November 2007, Utrecht, the Netherlands. Connectivism is essentially, and this is my take on it not necessarily George’s, the theory that knowledge and learning can be described and explained using network principals. There are four major ways in which networks grow. That’s it.

Interview About Learning 2.0

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Tarski's theory (which forms the heart of logical positivism) fixes the meaning of a term in what the term refers to. But the meaning of a word (or sentence) may extend beyond what the words directly refer to. Frege captures this idea by distinguisging between 'sense' and 'reference'. and 2.0 is that in 1.0 It is not.

What I'm Working On

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The combination of resource profiles, syndication, and distributed metadata gives us the model for a learning resource syndication network. Here are the slides describing the network and the paper. But the million dollar question is still this: how does your content network ensure that the right resource ends up in the right hands?

Making Software, Making Money

The project to which he refers, of course, is ELGG. This is a social-network slash content management system written in PHP. And then on the social network side there's Friendster, Orkut, Linked-In and all the rest. If there were 100,000 ELGG networks then it is very likely there would be a revenue stream.

Non-Web Connectivism

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The assembly line, of course, does not have some very important properties of connectivist networks, which means that it cannot adapt and learn. It is important to keep in mind, in general, that not just any network, and not just any distributed knowledge, qualifies as connectivist knowledge. That is related to the size of the network.
