Connectivism means Sharing

Connectivism happened to ELT before ELT knew very much about it. We were already connected, sharing ideas, resources, and networks. We were doing something without first defining it.

Defining connectivism isn’t really hard to do. Simply sit down at your computer and share – something, anything – with someone else. One word, share.

Now, we can get sophisticated. There are some really great definitions out there. Yet, after all is said and done, what we want to do is help one another.

So, that’s why we share.

Do you know a great website? Yes? Then share.

Do you have any great resources? Yes? Then share.

Do you know any great people to follow on Twitter, to be friends with on Facebook or LinkedIn? Yes? Then share.

What if what you have to share isn’t any good, poor quality, junk?

Share anyway. Share. Why?

One person’s junk is another person’s treasure.

Guess what? I got something for you.

A Handbook for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. It’s an awesome book. It’s free. No charge.

Gratis. Nada. (No, I didn’t write it. I’m recommending it.)

Take a look, you’ll be glad you did…
