Networked Student

The Networked Student was inspired by CCK08, a Connectivism course offered by George Siemens and Stephen Downes during fall 2008. It depicts an actual project completed by Wendy Drexler’s high school students. The Networked Student concept map was inspired by Alec Couros’ Networked Teacher. I hope that teachers will use it to help their colleagues, parents, and students understand networked learning in the 21st century. Anyone is free to use this video for educational purposes. You may download, translate, or use as part of another presentation. Please share.

    Excellent Video! I really enjoyed it. If you’re interested in these subjects you may also like the work being done by BEWARE OF IMAGES. It’s a feature-length, animated documentary about the history of visual representation. The movie explores the intricate relationship between the technology, regulation and social effects of mass media. Its aim is to serve as an educational and entertaining media literacy tool that can be enjoyed by everyone.

    I have two seventh grade children. One is high functioning Autistic and the other is an honors student. They both love computers. I wish that the schools here would teach them about RSS feeds, readers, scholarly websites, discerning fact from crap on the web, etc. It would be awesome if they let them be a connected partner in learning. I agree that you should post another video of pitfalls to this approach. Love your video!

    This is great, I have been trying to push this in my high school classes. Think I will use your video to explain it to my students. Well done!

    Great Visualization. Simple yet meaningful. I’m trying to introduce the concepts of PLN to my fellow teachers and students in Indonesia. I hope you don’t mind I use your Youtube video in helping explaining this concept 🙂

    TY so much for this video. I’ve read your paper “The Networked Student Model for PLE’s” in the Australasian Journal of EduTech. I’m hoping to use a very similar format for my InfoTech 9 students. A few years ago, I tried something similar–RSS feeds, iGoogle, blogging, but the concept was too foreign for the students. I believe the time is ripe, and our upcoming students (ie/ gr 7’s) feel much more comfortable w experimenting with tech. Hopefully, we’ll be able to blend iE-Portfolios with PLE’s!

    @bonsarts I understand your comment and recognize that there is considerable discourse around Connectivism as a learning theory. I would not focus just on group process theory, however. The focus here is on a personal autonomy in learning that includes connections with people. But, it also includes connections with content, synthesis of information, and knowledge management that arguably could combine multiple learning theories depending upon the individual learner.

  14. bonsarts says:

    This is not a learning theory but a group process theory. Connectivism is about filtering information and not about actual cognitive or behaviorism. It isn’t even constructivism where new meaning or true consensus achieved. It is like WOW, people sharing a same interest but employing strategies on how to assert their own position in the learning environment. The “concierge” reflects apprenticeship learning models which has some validity.

    Exciting format for network learning. Simple, yet packed with “how to” info for 21st century learning.

    TY for this video. I’m and educational psychology prof & covered connectivism this past week. We didn’t know about this video. 🙁 Students struggled with the theory in abstraction. But… because I have a robust PLN via twitter I was turned-on to your video. Now I can post it to our course wiki to help my students transform the theory into practice. Excellent work. GG
