This last week of cck11 is a week of saying goodbye to all we met in this MOOC. Meeting you has been very valuable, I thank you for sharing. Some of you will go on with mobiMOOC , we will meet again.
In this blogpost some remarks on connectivism and MOOC and of the next things to do.
This last week is a time of reflection. The MOOC was an adventure and an exploratory expedition. Explorations to Screencast and video, Pingback, Portuguese language weblogs and French tweets. Meeting people from all over the world.
In the mobiMOOC I will try to use connectivist principles to mlearning. This blog will continue as a mobimooc blog.
The average learning theorist is a topdown thinker, writing about “…Principles of connectivism:…” . (like most philosophers are) The theory for these theorists is of more value than the daily work in learning and teaching. This discussion on the status of connectivism as a real theory is an example of that top down thinking. “… -While it is not a serious learning theory (or let say a well-established learning theory) …”
In real sciences most people think bottom up, the daily problems are the start of thinking and looking for solutions. I would like connectivism to be a bottom up science. (Who wants to discuss the value of computer science as a theory?). So I do like a starting point in “.. the big 3 questions ..”.
