Connectivism – My thoughts

Connectivism is knowledge that is grown somewhat like a plant. Imagine that a thought is planted like a seed and its roots branch off to ideas and experiences we currently have in the soil, which link and make connections which are the basis of our learning. Any new thoughts that need nurturing, shoot from the soil seeking further information so that it can create new branches, new networks of knowledge to lay foundation for greater depth of understanding. Like a tree this knowledge has solid foundations (roots) which allows the knowledge to move and grow and change in order to build greater networks of knowledge (branches, stems and leaves).
