Vragen, questions #cck11

Near the end of the MOOC some questions remain:

  1. What does a teacher see of  connectivism? What will change in education as a result of connectivism? What does a connectivist  lesson look like?
  2. What are the implications of connectivism for the school? If New Brunswick wants to change education, and introduces connectivism, how will education of New Brunswick going to be?
  3. Can a teacher (in a non-connectivist school) teach in a connectivist way?
  4. Connectivistisch teaching is it only  for higher education?

I will try to get an answer for these questions. The main question is: What is the difference between connectivist education and other forms of education?

In http://leahgrrl.wordpress.com/2011/03/11/cck11-educurator/ I do find some answers.

Nu de MOOC bijna afgelopen is blijven er nog vragen over:

  1. Wat merkt de leraar van connectivisme? In hoeverre verandert connectivisme het onderwijs?  Hoe ziet een conenctivistische les eruit?
  2. Wat zijn consequenties van connectivisme voor het onderwijs voor de school? Als New Brunswick het onderwijs wil veranderen, en het connectivisme invoert, hoe zal het onderwijs van New Brunswick er gaan uitzien?
  3. Kun je als leraar aan een gewone niet-connectivistische school verbonden op connectivistische wijze lesgeven?
  4. Is connectivistisch lesgeven alleen iets voor hoger onderwijs?

Ik ga deze vragen beantwoorden, indien mogelijk.
De centrale vraag is: Wat zijn de kenmerken van connectivistisch onderwijs?

netwerk is een kenmerkend aspect.

  1. Hi Jaap,

    I’ve been thinking a lot about a connectivist-based practice of teaching/curating a lot. I’m not sure that it would work in traditional schools, at least here in the U.S. and not now.
    I like the idea of a classsroom being more open to the world and getting connected into different conversations and ideas. But some schools, like my husband’s, actually limit what you can get to on the Internet. They claim it is because they are “protecting” students, but it also confines teachers, of course.

    But maybe we need to ask your question: What would be the different things that a connectivist education would do? Do you see it happening in a space like a classroom? Is it really happening with very young children or do we still think there are things to be “taught”–perhaps reading, math, spelling, art–first before we let them loose to discover information on their own?

    Thanks, Jaap.

  2. Leagrrl, I did read your blogpost on despair. Most children really want to learn when they go to school first day. Most children loose that appetite for learning. I wonder if the school is a means to make love-learning-children to not-liking-to-learn-children?
    I did view this vimeo vimeo, it is a lesson to cope with chaos and unpredictability, the teacher says that lesson is needed because nobody knows what the future of the students will be. We want to protect children to a future we do not know, and perhaps we not learn to cope with their own future.
    Regards Jaap
