Curriculum as Connectivism

Roger Stack brought a recent post on curriculum as connectivism to my attention. He explores how Ken Wilber’s (a name that comes up quite frequently when I speak on connectivism) integral theory of AQAL relates to connectivism as a curriculum metaphor. After reviewing various dimensions of curriculum (as content/subject, discrete tasks, experience, cultural reproduction, currere, and intended outcomes), Roger states that the notion of connectivism “is potentially a richer way of seeing curriculum provision and I’m now interested to see how this metaphor might inform our discussion of how students choose their learning, what structures we might put in place to provide learning ecologies and how we can support students to make the necessary connections.”
