The questions asked in the Connectivity Theory:
How are learning theories impacted when knowledge is no longer acquired in the linear manner?
What adjustments need to be made with learning theories when technology performs many of the cognitive operations previously performed by learners?
How can we stay current in a rapidly evolving information ecology?
How do learning theories address moments where performance is needed in the absence of complete understanding?
What is the impact of networks and complexity theories on learning?
What is the impact of chaos as a complex pattern recognition process on learning?
With increased recognition of interconnections in differing fields of knowledge, how are systems and ecology theories perceived in light of learning tasks?
What are the principles of the Connectivity Theory?
Learning and knowledge rests in diversity of opinions
Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources
Learning may reside in non-human appliances
Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known
Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning
Ability to see connections between fields, ideas, and concepts is a core skill
Currency is the intent of all connectivist learning activities
Decision-making is itself a learning process
Gather your ideas for the project by collecting pictures and photographs and present them in your Visual Diary
Planning consists of all your preliminary sketches, thumbnail-sketches and all the ideas you had put on paper
Your process should include photographs of how you produced your final project. There should be a summary o what you did where to get where you are
Present your artwork or final project in a manner you should be proud of. Organize an art exhibition or a public showing of your work
Depending on the type of evaluation decided upon by the teacher, you now get the marks for your project.
Using Panofsky:
This level of interpretation in the Panofsky method studies the identification, description, and the interpretation of the content of the artwork chosen.
This level of interpretation is related to the “factual,” elementary, and easily understandable aspects of a work. The learner would identify the pure forms, lines, colors, and volumes represented in the painting.
This level of interpretation is where the learner is interested in identifying those principles which reveal the basic attitude of a nation, a period, a class, a religious or philosophical association.
Two examples for projects in the classroom using the History of Art as a underlying theme:
Using the artists of the Modern Period, their work and the themes seen in Modern art, ask the learners to use a classic artwork (for example: The Gleaners, Millet) and then they have to modify the artwork by adding an element of themselves or highlighting problems in die modern world.
Using the themes that the artists used during the Modern Period (identity, industrialization, nature, truth and accuracy, form), ask the learners to create an artwork using one of the themes and lead the project in such a manner that the learners discover themselves in the process.
