Unit 2. Principles of Connectivism


Course Progress

In the connectivist classroom, the students rely on their networks for gaining and sharing knowledge. In the connectivist classroom, the ability to learn and find information is more important that what is currently known. Connectivist classrooms are student-centered environments where the teacher guides the student learning. It is the teacher’s job to help students create and maintain networks so they can find and learn new information. Teachers help students connect with and maintain social learning networks and social technology networks. Using social learning and social technologies promotes inclusion by increasing agency, openness, connectivity, and diversity.
