In the coming weeks, I’ll be discussing issues regarding connectivism and its place within the language learning environment (as well as within education in general).

Here’s a short video with George Siemens, considered a co-founder of connectivism along with Stephen Downes, made three weeks ago.
Here’s a video he posted to YouTube last year.
