    ...
    Networked technologies have changed power and authority. This, networked learning has a great deal in common with approaches to learning that focus on personal empowerment and freedom. The readings (and the Castell lecture) provide insight into how networks alter power and authority. 2011 was a significant year in online, social, and digital networks challenging existing power structures. As you engage in the readings this week, reflect on how networks influence the traditional school and education structure in society.

    In knowledge that could be described as connective, a property of one entity must lead to or become a property of another entity in order for them to be considered connected; the knowledge that results from such connections is connective knowledge. Connective knowledge requires an interaction. More to the point, connective knowledge is knowledge of the connection.

    In terms of research: Since 2004, we've encountered numerous discussions about the status of connectivism as a learning theory and potential research areas. This conversations have occurred in bits and pieces - in academic journals, in CCK courses, in conferences, and on blogs. This week, we will attempt to pull together some of the prominent critiques of connectivism and recast those as potential research topics.
