Those who struggle to create an adequate theory of learning must admit that the process is much like stumbling in the dark.

George Siemens John Connell

http://www.connectivism.ca/

The developing structure of technology, neural research, institutional reorganization (from hierarchy to network), and social impact of learning under new ideologies, is evolving too rapidly to be effectively detailed as “this is what it is.”

George Siemens John Connell

http://www.connectivism.ca/

The moment this declaration is made, the environment has shifted. We need to lay aside the desire to know, and embrace instead the desire to continue to learn. Knowing is no longer a destination. Knowing is a process of walking in varying degrees of alignment with a dynamic environment.

George Siemens John Connell

The Nature of Interconnectedness

John Connell

John Connell

Networking is natural; connecting is natural. John Connell

Dissolution of Time and Distance

John Connell

Self-Organizing Networks

John Connell

HyperNetworking: active, complex, systematic John Connell

Network Ecology

Learning Ecology

John Connell

Effective Networks are: decentralized distributed disintermediated disaggregated dis-integrated

democratic dynamic

desegregated John Connell

Smokestack Schooling?

John Connell

The conditions that typified the school...

Information was scarce Key sources of information were controlled by an elite Teachers were seen as the founts of knowledge The economy demanded mass -production of learning

The curriculum was centrally determined Pedagogy meant ‘knowledge transfer’ John Connell

“The great mistake we educationists make is to suppose that schools are about education. It is not so....they are about control...”

RF Mackenzie John Connell

“We want one class of persons to have a liberal education. We want another class of persons, a very much larger class of necessity, to forego the privileges of liberal education and fit themselves to perform specific difficult manual tasks.” Woodrow Wilson John Connell

“Education is an old ramshackle windmill that goes on flapping its great arms long after the miller has left.”

RF Mackenzie John Connell

A place where learning is the focus rather than teaching A hub for educational resources and facilitation

A place for social learning (and solitary learning) A focus for collaborative learning An immersive environment An open-learning environment built on negotation and mutual respect

An extended community resource

John Connell

Derived from the thinking and writing of Stephen Downes and George Siemens

Some Principles of Network Learning? John Connell

Learning and knowledge rest in diversity of opinions

John Connell

Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources

John Connell

Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known

John Connell

Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning

John Connell

Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill.

John Connell

The Purpose of Education in an Interconnected World

John Connell

from “Deschooling Society” http://reactor-core.org/deschooling.html

“A good education system should have three purposes...”

Ivan Illich John Connell

“It should provide all who want to learn with access to available resources at any time in their lives....”

Ivan Illich John Connell

“It should empower all who want to share what they know to find those who want to learn it from them....” Ivan Illich John Connell

“It should furnish all who want to present an issue to the public with the opportunity to make their challenge known...” Ivan Illich John Connell

The current search for new educational funnels must be reversed into the search for their institutional inverse: educational webs which heighten the opportunity for each one to transform each moment of his living into one of learning, sharing, and caring.

Ivan Illich John Connell

What should Education be about? affirmative transformation extending human horizons realizing personal and social potential

John Connell

What has Education too often been about? maintaining the status quo

affirming social station protecting and reinforcing the prevailing economic condition

John Connell

What should Technology be about? affirmative transformation

making the world a better place to live in extending human capacity and capability for collective benefit

John Connell

What has Technology too often been about? killing and controlling damaging our world rendering people (and peoples) passive

John Connell

“The crux of success or failure is to know which core values to hold on to, and which to discard or replace when times change.”

Jared Diamond John Connell

Compassion Respect for Rights VALUES Respect for Others of Non-Humans

Equity

Derived from Jonathan Porritt “Capitalism as if the World Matters” 2005

John Connell

Some Thoughts on Network Learning

John Connell

Criteria for Network Learning...

John Connell

Connectivity Diversity Opennness Autonomy John Connell

http://www.ltc.arizona.edu/pdf/NetworkLearning.pdf Pithamber R. Polsani

Education is being displaced from its traditional confines of institutions to a generalized form of learning that can take place anytime and anyplace

John Connell

http://www.ltc.arizona.edu/pdf/NetworkLearning.pdf Pithamber R. Polsani

...a form of education whose site of production, circulation and consumption is the network

John Connell

http://www.ltc.arizona.edu/pdf/NetworkLearning.pdf Pithamber R. Polsani

...education should be redefined as preparedness for change...

John Connell

http://www.ltc.arizona.edu/pdf/NetworkLearning.pdf Pithamber R. Polsani

...the knowledge economy or the information society is not a stable structure with definitive functions, but a flexible condition where diverse programs can be developed using fragments of knowledge from different fields.

John Connell

Knowledge is created... Knowledge is grown... Knowledge is personal... Knowledge is socially mediated... Knowledge is making connections....

Knowledge is recognizing patterns... Knowledge is perception... John Connell

Pedagogy for Network Learning?

John Connell

Paulo Freire on Pedagogy....

Paulo Freire John Connell

...learners are active participants and co-constructors of knowledge...

Paulo Freire John Connell

...learning should be meaningful & purposeful to the learners...

Paulo Freire John Connell

...learning should have a critical focus...

Paulo Freire John Connell

http://www.downes.ca/

Educators play the same sort of role in society as journalists. They are aggregators, assimilators, analysts and advisors. They are middle links in an ecosystem

Stephen Downes John Connell

http://www.downes.ca/

Knowledge is not located in any given place (and therefore not 'transferred' or 'transacted' per se) but rather consists of the network of connections formed from experience and interactions with a knowing community...

Stephen Downes John Connell

Paul Anderson (JISC) - “What is Web 2.0: Ideas, Technologies and Implications for Education” John Connell

Cult of the Amateur....? ”...instead of creating masterpieces, these millions and millions of exuberant monkeys [Internet users]–many with no more talent in the creative arts than our primate cousins–are creating an endless digital forest of mediocrity.”

Andrew Keen John Connell

Cult of the Amateur....?

“Wisdom of the crowd are internet activists who are stealing our culture from us” .

Andrew Keen John Connell

Everything is Miscellaneous? “I was an academic a long time ago, but I haven't forgotten how isolated I felt in the philosophical community before the Web. Ideas were scarce back then because space, time and the limitations of paper made it hard to hear what others were saying and well nigh impossible to talk with them about it....”

David Weinberger John Connell

Everything is Miscellaneous? “...today I am in contact with people who come up with ideas I'd never have encountered, who are sources of wide expertise, who squirrel away in public on tiny topics, who spew a long tail of speculations with occasional insights that are worth the wait, who take me apart because my logic is wrong or my biases are showing, and who support my good ideas...”

David Weinberger John Connell

Everything is Miscellaneous? “Without any doubt, I am in the richest, most stimulating, most fruitful swirl of thought, knowledge, ideas and feeling ever in my life...far more productive than when I was consigned to talking only with professionals and credentialed experts.”

David Weinberger John Connell

“The Owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the falling of the dusk.”

John Connell

Philosophy...always comes on the scene too late..… When philosophy paints its gray in gray, then has a shape of life grown old. By philosophy’s gray in gray it cannot be rejuvenated but only understood.”

GWF Hegel John Connell
