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. Connectivist learning theory, therefore, is based on the theory of how networks learn, that is to say, how networks grow, how networks develop, how networks form structures of connections between neurons.

Stager, Logo and Web 2.0

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

While some continue to argue that tooks and resources should be specifically 'educational', I would suggest that the newer approach (which we are calling 'learning networks' or 'connectivism') stresses continuity between the educational environment and the wider social environment. in edcucation have referred to people like Illich and Freire. I find, for example, a lot of discussion in educational psychology about learning networks. Learning networks.

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.

And the answer is: by the way the network is organized.

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. The only cases like this I can think of are cases like Totem (or as I refer to it, the world's worst media player). 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. It doesn't add value - and this is key in connectivist networks. That these are values because networks that embody them are more reliable, more stable, can be trusted.
