6-A-3 Responding to Connectivism
I had looked at the negatives of connectivism all week long since our group also had the "against" position, so I decided to look at Group A's wiki to find out the positives of connectivism at their wiki site:
Great job, Group A. I agree with the comments you made on the wiki. I loved the video of the connected student. It made the theory easier for me to understand.
The only problem I have with this theory is that it seems to be a LOT of work for the teacher. Throwing away the textbook is very intimidating for those of us who have been around for a while. Am I going to have to create a new lesson every day for them? Will they all work well this way?
I think there are good things and bad things about connectivism. I don't mind using it for some activities in my classroom, but not all students will find this a good way to work. We need to appeal to all of our students learning abilities.
