    I thought I would look at connectivism as it’s so closely linked in my mind to MOOCs, and I think there are some echoes of the digital literacies discussion we had last week.

    I’ve blogged about it at http://alicesadventuresinedtech.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/octel-activity-3-1-theories-of-active-learning-connectivism/

    Connectivism is a core concept of Adult Learning; relating our experiences to the new knowledge being presented.  As adults, our pools of experience are deeper and broader than young learners, which could be why MOOCs are better for adult learners than for young learners.  MOOCs rely on self-regulation and self-motivation, but also the ability to relate, or connect, to the content.
