Connected Learning

Admittedly, I have been overly excited about this class this semester due to my knowledge opportunities when it comes to the internet and learning. As I’ve gone through the program here at VCU, I have truly come face-to-face with the possibilities that are out there – as well as how much I can use myself. This discovery has led to a revised passion to not only understand what helps adults learn, but to also discover the various ways to get them there. The video that we watched on the Networked Student was a perfect representation of where I’m finding myself and my realizations as I continue to propel forward. There are a variety of ways that students, young and adult, can learn in today’s society. And, as those standing at the front of today and tomorrow’s classrooms, we must realize that we are no longer there to know and provide all of the answers. We are instead there to help guide them on ways to find and understand the quality information that they seek, using methods that will prove most meaningful, useful and helpful to them.

    The web does offer some unique opportunities for learning, and even though we explore several tools in this course the ultimate aim is to think about how we can leverage these tools for learning purposes.

    As educators, I believe that we need to be in a position to guide students through their learning process. We need to reflect on what we do as our practices may hinder student learning. I agree that “we are no longer there to know and provide all of the answers.”
