I started to learn about connectivism few days ago.
I read some related materials and my first opinion is that this is important.
I analyse my own experiences and read posts of my classmated.
The more I think about the topic, more questions I got.
Do I know answers right now? Not yet, but I hope that it will come to me soon.
Please share with me your doubts on how to start.
Please read other learning theories, especially socio-constructivism. Connectivism builds from Vygostky's; it emphasizes the skills that the 21st century student needs. That's probably why other people contend it's not even a theory because there is very little that is new about connectivism especially in relation to socio-constructivism.
Look at it from this perspective: there is a lot of information or knowledge that exists with 'nodes'. What is required is a skill to connect to these nodes. There are various communities of practice that exists and from which we can draw the knowledge or information at any given time; what we is to know how to connect to these.
My social network comprises experts in the field of education, curriculum design, ICTs. Depending on what information at a particular time, all I do is to connect with the relevant expert who provides me the information I need.
I hope this helps
Thank you for good advise
