Networked Learning Explained

We are living in a highly connected and information-rich world.Over the last 20 years or so, technology has reorganized how we live, how we communicate, and how we learn. Old learning theories particularly behaviourism, cognitivism, and constructivism no longer fit in within today's educational paradigm.Our students are not the same students that we were, their learning needs differ and so do their learning styles and priorities.

Students today learn through groups most of which are virtual. They learn and share what they know through social media.Simply put: they network to learn. As teachers and educators we need to  help them thrive in these new learning environments and this can not be done unless we ourselves know and appreciate the concept of networked learning.

To shed some light on this concept, I am sharing with you one of the most popular videos done in this regard and I am also introducing you to a great graphic on connected learning . Check them below and let us know what you think of them. Enjoy
