Response to Connectivism

My response to Connectivism Wiki – Group B – 6-A-1

 

I think one of the biggest problems with connectivism is the danger of having a narrow knowledge base. Connectivism could allow for people to only study things which interest them with very like-minded people, therefore never allowing for different perspectives to debate their beliefs and knowledge. I believe that connectivism is a way of life for the net generation. They learn to do things through connectivism. I see it daily with my own students as they check google, wikipedia and other sites to build their knowledge. However, I don’t believe it to be a learning theory on it’s own and I don’t believe that it is a way to learn everything. I agree there is little evidence that it actually works as a learning theory. I also agree that it would take someone very mature to handle learning this way only.
