Connectivism, Networked Learning

I stumbled across this article by George Siemens from ASTD that was written last November.  While I’m pretty sure there has already been much discussion about it, it took me back to the Instructional Theories class I took in grad school.

I’m not sure I’ve properly digested what George is saying yet and it will probably take me another reading or two (I’m slow that way) to see where this fits in my understanding of how people learn and what the implications are for my designing.  For now I definitely feel like there is something big in there.  I just can’t claim to really understand it… yet.

    Excuse me, but electronically speaking I have ‘fat-fingers’ and clumsily posted the comment below to the wrong post.
    “Thanks for the post, Paul! I will read the article.”

    No excuse needed. When I created my first ever “nic” on the internet (for a network based game called Bolo, ahhh, ’94 was a good year) I had a case of “slow-shifty-pinky” and ended up as THeBLender.

    Thanx for bothering to post at all (see today’s) blog…
