Happy last day of Feb everyone! ;)
Over the past week we have learned about Connectivism and Social Knowledge, since I really didn't know a lot of how this plays a role in learning and teaching so I decided to learn a bit more about it. For those who are or was in the same boat as I... here is the definition of Connectivism.
Social Knowledge is the act of learning, sharing and connecting with people online through technology and online communities (or at least that what I think). :)
I can see how this play a role in the learning especially young children who interact on social networks daily. The amount of information available to the hands to kids is unreal. Related to this the questions are is the information they see accurate information? Do they question information they see online? or do they believe everything they read? Do they have search overload?
I don't know the answers to these questions but I always tell my children don't believe everything you read online. Search a subject more .... don't read someones blog and take that as fact! Anyhow, just some thoughts....
