Slide: Stephen Downes: Future of e-Learning

I’ve been doing some interesting reading lately on new learning theories… and stumbled upon a new word, connectivism,through a paper (and powerpoint) on e-learning by Stephen Downes.

Although the topic itself isn’t one that you can easily browse while soaking in a warm Calgon bath, it does make some interesting reading. More can be found on connectivism learning theory here.

Yup, try and say that three times fast. :)
