Trent: Siemens and Connectivism

30 Oct

This video is rather lengthy, but it gave me a better understanding that Connective learning is completely directed and up to the learner to control.  It was neat to listen to Siemens himself talk about an actual coarse that he is directing and how Connectivism ties into the learning process. 

This week I also learned after critiquing my peers Strategy Application and after receiving my own critiques, that more that one Instructional or Pedagogical approach is needed.  I will now utilize the Instructivist, Constructive, and Connectivist approaches to guide my learners from Action to Activity to my eventual Learning Goal, of having 4-H Agents develop their own PLE, enabling them to do their jobs more efficiently.

    Great video post, Trent, and it was made all the more valuable by your reflective musings and applications!
