Museums and Web 2.0: Connectivism

Last week, I attended a roundtable discussion called “E-Learning in Museums” held by the Canadian Heritage Information Network in Ottawa. One of the other speakers, George Siemens gave an interesting presentation entitled, Connectivism: Museums as Learning Ecologies. For those of you in the museum field and in education, George’s blog elearnspace is a great resource, dating back to June 2002, practically ancient history as far as blogs are concerned. He also maintains a site on Connectivism, so if you’re interested in this learning theory, it’s the place to go.

My earlier post with a link to my presentation, Museums and the Web 2.0 at the CHIN roundtable is here.
