Open Connectivism Spanish Course

Looks like several educators have taken the connectivism course that Stephen Downes and I have been running for the last few years and are now offering a Spanish version: TIOD10 (Google translation). Whenever I see initiatives like this – an adaptation and an augmentation of an open course – I’m reminded of the tremendous potential openness has for generating unintended learning opportunities. When Stephen and I first started with CCK08, our focus was on sharing our ideas in as open a format as possible. The decision for openness has generated many unintended adaptations of both the course content and model. I’m convinced that openness is largely about distributing creativity.

A Spanish translation of Knowing Knowledge is also available.

    I´m now part of TIOD10, was both in CCK09 and CCK08, mostly a lurker, amazed and mouth agape at the virtual realities growing and developing in front of my eyes.You don´t know how much you´ve contributed to my knowledge acquisition and how being connected has made the trick.Now I´m ready to use my virtual voice and take an active part in this on-line workshop.I´m delighted, thank you George.

  3. Thank you very much for your support. Since I started CCK09 with Luz Pearson I knew that she was really open to connectivism and although I wanted to learn as much as possible about Network Theory we were both interested to organize a MOOC open online course similar to CCK in Spanish
