Whose Connectivism?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I would like to make just one point, that it is not "Siemen's 'Connectivism,'" that he gave a name to a theory and approach a number of us had been working on for some time. I don't mind saying I borrow the name from him, but I would certainly say this is as much my theory (and that of numerous other people) as it is his.

Our New Website. What Took So Long?

Adaptive Path

The site you saw before Tuesday afternoon, except for a few homepage tweaks here and there, was pretty much the same site you’ve been looking at since 2004. On Tuesday, we giddily launched a new adaptivepath.com. That’s like 900 years in internet time. Don’t think for a minute we didn’t know we needed a new website before now. It’s been a constant topic of conversation since I got here in 2007 and others tell me that was the case long before.


creative desperation for desperate times

Harold Jarche

The inspiration came from Lilia Efimova in 2004. My personal knowledge mastery framework was a result of creative desperation. I had just lost my job. My wife was a stay-at-home mother, we had two young children, and we live in a remote economically depressed part of the country.

workplace learning — yesterday, today, tomorrow

Harold Jarche

Anyway, PKM — introduced to me by Lilia Efimova in 2004 — became my sensemaking framework in order to stay professionally current and to connect with a global knowledge network. Ten years ago — workplace learning in 10 years — I wrote that in 2019 much of the workforce will be distributed in time & space as well as in engagement. I also projected that work and learning will continue to blend while stand-up training will be challenged by the ever-present back channel.

These were the questions asked during the The Edinburgh Scenarios in 2004. Will technology empower or frustrate learning and will established powers control individuals or will something new emerge? The resulting scenarios were as follows. Web of Confidence: Technology advances, power shifts to emergent players. U Choose: Technology frustrates, power shifts to emergent players. Virtually Vanilla: Technology advances, power retained by established players.

My morning paranoia: Bernie’s scream moment

David Weinberger

Remember the 2004 Dean Scream? CNN has the nerve to title its posting of this video “2004: The scream that doomed Howard Dean.” My fear is that Bernie Sanders is going to have a bad moment during the upcoming debate, and the media will seize on it to make him look unfit for the presidency. I fear this because I’ve seen it happen before. ” But t’wasn’t the scream that killed Howard Dean’s campaign.

Since first writing about PKM in 2004 , I have continuously worked at improving the model, identifying emergent practices and tools, and promoting the need to let people manage their own learning in the workplace. My conclusions in 2004 remain today: My conclusion for a while has been that knowledge cannot be managed, and neither can knowledge workers.

Nine Shift predicted it in 2004, and two years ago we even wrote it would begin in 2012. Suburbs begin go into decline in 2012. Another big prediction for NineShift comes true! In April, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that central cities are now growing faster than suburbs. The nation's leading housing expert, Robert Shiller, then said that suburbs are in permanent decline. Another housing expert also reported the only suburbs still growing are those with train stations.

#8 Highways Now Unfundable

Nine Shift

The issue is unsolvable because Gen Y is driving less and less, as NineShift predicted in 2004 and proved in 2010. States are now facing the unsolvable problem of how to fund highways moving forward. Added to that is the likelihood that Boomers, like previous generations, will decrease their driving as they hit age 65. Added to that is the current refusal to increase the gas tax, which has paid for highways for the last half century.
