After looking at the other group’s wiki, I would say that I agree with them that Connectivisim is a positive thing to teach in our classrooms. I took a class this past summer that used Edmodo, and I really learned a lot about it. I had to give a presentation on it with a sample unit, and the other students in my class responded well. Students are able to utilize technology through this resource, and at the same time, they’re learning new material.
Connectivism helps to ensure that students become lifelong learners by facilitating the building of active connections, utilizing intelligent social networking, and encouraging student-generated curricula.
I think the quote the group used above is a good one because it is addressing the 21st century skills that our students need today. There is so much technology in our world today that we, as teachers, need to make sure we are teaching our students how to use it appropriately.
