Prof Downes in Town!

“Learning…occurs in communities, where the practice of learning is the participation in the community..” (Downes, 2006). 

These are the exact words by Prof Downes; the philospher who theorize about connectivism learning theory along with his friend George Siemens.

And guess what??? I get to meet him in-person! How about that???


             Prof Downes and smiling me!

Connectivism learning theory tells a lot about how the current way of learning has to manifest on the technology that we have today.

And that, learning has to take advantage of technology as the human ‘extension’.
