Shqipe Husaj

Abstract


The rapid development in technology has brought the world to a small village enabling people to meet each other any time they want, exchange their knowledge and experiences being seated at home or office by using just a small equipment. Technology generates new affordances with new pedagogical options. In this sense the technology enables us distribute knowledge over network connections in an uncontrolled way, by being active member and committing ourselves to the whole process of communication and learning.The purpose of this paper is to bring some ideas on learning through technology respectively ideas on connectivism or connective learning, the principles of connective learning at numerous levels etc. As its name suggests connectivism is the knowledge distributed across a network of connections, and therefore that learning consists of the ability to put those networks into progressive use. It means the set of connections formed by actions and experiences .Some characteristics of Connective learning, online courses and knowledge sharing through networks will be compared to traditional classroom learning.
