I found this thanks to CogDog. It is a simple, really easy to understand video about “connectivism”. Use it to promote network learning in school.
The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler’s high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros’ Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century.
It was a sobering moment when, after watching the video, I reflected on the level of (in-school) networked learning that has happened in my school.
