Proposing an integrated research framework for connectivism: Utilising theoretical synergies

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningConnectivism is receiving acknowledgement as a fresh way of conceptualising learning in the digital age. Thus, as a relatively new instructional framework, it is imperative that research on its applicability and effectiveness in a variety of educational contexts is advanced. In particular, a high premium should be placed on context-specific research that is aimed not only at developing general principles but also at improving practice in local settings. More...

Dialogue and connectivism: A new approach to understanding and promoting dialogue-rich networked learning

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningConnectivism offers a theory of learning for the digital age that is usually understood as contrasting with traditional behaviourist, cognitivist, and constructivist approaches. This article will provide an original and significant development of this theory through arguing and demonstrating how it can benefit from social constructivist perspectives and a focus on dialogue.

Connectivism: Its place in theory-informed research and innovation in technology-enabled learning

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningThe sociotechnical context for learning and education is dynamic and makes great demands on those trying to seize the opportunities presented by emerging technologies. The goal of this paper is to explore certain theories for our plans and actions in technology-enabled learning. Although presented as a successor to previous learning theories, connectivism alone is insufficient to inform learning and its support by technology in an internetworked world. More...

Emergent learning and learning ecologies in Web 2.0

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningThis paper describes emergent learning and situates it within learning networks and systems and the broader learning ecology of Web 2.0. It describes the nature of emergence and emergent learning and the conditions that enable emergent, self-organised learning to occur and to flourish. Specifically, it explores whether emergent learning can be validated and self-correcting and whether it is possible to link or integrate emergent and prescribed learning. More...

The challenges to connectivist learning on open online networks: Learning experiences during a massive open online course

International Review of Research in Open and Distributed LearningSelf-directed learning on open online networks is now a possibility as communication and resources can be combined to create learning environments. But is it really? There are some challenges that might prevent learners from having a quality learning experience. This paper raises questions on levels of learner autonomy, presence, and critical literacies required in active connectivist learning. More...
