What does a theory do l.jpg
What does a theory do?

  • Explains

  • Guides

  • Links knowledge and implementation

  • Builds foundation of its own obsolesce


Knowledge l.jpg
Knowledge

“To 'know' something is to be organized in a certain way, to exhibit patterns of connectivity. To 'learn' is to acquire certain patterns.”

(Downes, 2006)


What does it mean to learn l.jpg
What does it mean to Learn?

“…we suggest that the objects of thought, the very things upon which mental processes directly operate, are not always inside the brain…The cognitive processing that gives rise to mental experience may be something whose functioning cuts across the superficial physical boundaries between brain, body, and environment.”

(Spivey et al, 2004)

“The distributed cognition perspective aspires to rebuild cognitive science from the outside in,, beginning with the social and material setting of cognitive activity, so that culture, context, and history can be linked with the core concepts of cognition”

(Hutchins, 2000)


Internalization l.jpg
Internalization cognitive science from the outside in,, beginning with the social and material setting of cognitive activity, so that culture, context, and history can be linked with the core concepts of cognition”

  • Behaviourism

  • Cognitivism

  • Constructivism


Connectivism l.jpg
Connectivism cognitive science from the outside in,, beginning with the social and material setting of cognitive activity, so that culture, context, and history can be linked with the core concepts of cognition”

  • Externalization

  • Learning is chaotic, not structured

  • Learning is network formation (or pattern recognition)

  • Distributed

  • Networks filter

  • Adaptive


It s distributed l.jpg
It’s distributed cognitive science from the outside in,, beginning with the social and material setting of cognitive activity, so that culture, context, and history can be linked with the core concepts of cognition”


Learning networks l.jpg
Learning Networks cognitive science from the outside in,, beginning with the social and material setting of cognitive activity, so that culture, context, and history can be linked with the core concepts of cognition”

  • Internal (the architecture of a brain)

  • External (the nodes we connect)


Context l.jpg
Context cognitive science from the outside in,, beginning with the social and material setting of cognitive activity, so that culture, context, and history can be linked with the core concepts of cognition”


Learning ecology l.jpg

“Humans create their cognitive powers in part by creating the environments in which they exercise those powers”

(Hutchins, 2000)


Knowledge spaces l.jpg
Knowledge Spaces the environments in which they exercise those powers”


Knowledge structures l.jpg
Knowledge Structures the environments in which they exercise those powers”
