I have enroled in the online course CCK08, "Connectivism and Connective Knowledge", organised by George Siemens & Stephen Downes (Canada) wich will start September 7.
It's "a twelve week course that will explore the concepts of connectivism and connective knowledge and explore their application as a framework for theories of teaching and learning".
People that, like me, don't require a final certification can enrole freely.

This is the program:

  • Week 1: What is Connectivism?
  • Week 2: Rethinking epistemology: Connective knowledge
  • Week 3: Properties of Networks
  • Week 4: History of networked learning
  • Week 5: Connectives and Collectives: Distinctions between networks and groups
  • Week 6: Complexity, Chaos and Research
  • Week 7: Instructional design and connectivism
  • Week 8: Power, control, validity, and authority in distributed environments
  • Week 9: What becomes of the teacher? New roles for educators
  • Week 10: Openness: social change and future directions
  • Week 11: Systemic change: How do institutions respond?
  • Week 12: The Future of Connectivism
The first aim of this blog has to be a tool for my partecipation in the CCK08 course.
