elearnspace. Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age


Behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism are the three broad learning theories most often utilized in the creation of instructional environments. These theories, however, were developed in a time when learning was not impacted through technology. Over the last twenty years, technology has reorganized how we live, how we communicate, and how we learn. Learning needs and theories that describe learning principles and processes, should be reflective of underlying social environments. Vaill emphasizes that “learning must be a way of being – an ongoing set of attitudes and actions by individuals and groups that they employ to try to keep abreast o the surprising, novel, messy, obtrusive, recurring events…� (1996, p.42).

Learners as little as forty years ago would complete the required schooling and enter a career that would often last a lifetime. Information development was slow. The life of knowledge was measured in decades. Today, these foundational principles have been altered. Knowledge is growing exponentially. In many fields the life of knowledge is now measured in months and years. Gonzalez (2004) describes the challenges of rapidly diminishing knowledge life:

“One of the most persuasive factors is the shrinking half-life of knowledge. The “half-life of knowledge� is the time span from when knowledge is gained to when it becomes obsolete. Half of what is known today was not known 10 years ago. The amount of knowledge in the world has doubled in the past 10 years and is doubling every 18 months according to the American Society of Training and Documentation (ASTD). To combat the shrinking half-life of knowledge, organizations have been forced to develop new methods of deploying instruction.�

Feil læringsmetodikk – adressa.no

I følgje Hermundur Sigmundsson ved NTNU les kvar femte elev for dårleg. Dette skuldast feil læringsmetodikk hevdar han vidare. Brodering skal visst ikkje hjelpa, men meir tilpassa undervising kan hjelpa.

I følgje nyare forsking skal ein heller ikkje kunne overføra dugleik frÃ¥ eit felt til eit anna (Eg saknar dokumentasjon her…).

Vidare hevdar Sigmundsson at læring og kjensla av meistring er spesifikk.

Eg har ein mistanke om kva læringssyn Sigmundsson har, og kan vel ikkje heilt seie meg einig i dette.

Det er vel mogleg Ã¥ bryta opp konteksten og laga prinsipp og reglar av det ein lærer, dÃ¥ kan eit prinsipp i matte kanskje brukast i gymtimen…
