    1. Five types of wayfinding behaviors exist in PSKNThis study identified five types of wayfinding behaviors in PSKN for learners: creating nodes, finding important nodes and forming cognitive maps, connecting important nodes, and finding and filtering information. Our findings verified the diversity of wayfinding in the PSKN. Previous studies have focused on wayfinding difficulties, such as information evaluation (Kammerer et al., 2013; Kiili et al., 2020), resource disorientation (Wang et al., 2022) and technical difficulties (Kop, 2011; Li et al., 2016). However, few studies have examined technological factors influence the ways learners access resources in connectivist learning, such as the PSKN. Four wayfinding behaviors were defined in this study based on a connection-forming model (AlDahdouh, 2018). We further defined a new wayfinding behavior, creating nodes, in the PSKN, with three types of creating behavior: learning communities, knowledge nodes, and course knowledge bases. Consistent with previous studies, the results demonstrated that generating knowledge nodes facilitated learners acting as teachers or content producers (Griesbaum, 2014), contributing to more connections (Duan et al., 2019; Yu et al., 2019).Furthermore, we revealed creation of behavior-supported indirect wayfinding for individuals, through which learners can navigate the network and identify diversity nodes effectively (Kizito, 2016). Our results indicated that all learners navigated the PSKN and oriented additional nodes. Compared with previous studies, this study found that creating nodes was an essential wayfinding feature in the PSKN. This may be because, with the increase in network connectivity, resource navigation moved from relying on pre-existing nodes to wayfinding by creating nodes to identify more important nodes and make connections. This reflects a change in the role of learners during the wayfinding process, that is, a gradual move from finding to creating nodes. This also means that indirect wayfinding was a crucial wayfinding feature, and creating nodes was a critical behavior in the PSKN. Moreover, as the connection proceeds, the learner becomes like a teacher, and creating nodes becomes a critical wayfinding behavior in connectivist learning.

      Five types of wayfinding in PSKN: 1) node creation 2) finding key notes, 3) forming mental maps 4) making a connection between nodes deemed important 5) finding/filtering information. Note how these 5 are also, in a different way perhpas, core elements of my [[PKM Personal Knowledge Management 20041004192620]] First mentioned, the creation of nodes is a novel type defined by this study. Three types of creation behaviour are involved: learning communities, knowledge nodes, and course knowledge bases. These there are common in pkm circles too, vgl Discord servers some have started, or DF platform, published notes and vids e.g.

Most interesting to me is the finding that "creating nodes was an essential wayfinding feature in the PSKN." The best way to make connections is to contribute. "As the connection proceeds, the learner becomes like a teacher, and creating nodes becomes a critical wayfinding behavior in connectivist learning."

    1. Chatti notes that Connectivism misses some concepts, which are crucial for learning, such as reflection, learning from failures, error detection and correction, and inquiry. He introduces the Learning as a Network (LaaN) theory which builds upon connectivism, complexity theory, and double-loop learning. LaaN starts from the learner and views learning as the continuous creation of a personal knowledge network (PKN).[18]

      Learning as a Network LaaN and Personal Knowledge Network PKN , do these labels give me anything new?

    1. them build a network of connected knowledge

      'build a network of connected knowledge' this seems to subscribe to the K as object view, woven into a network of connections. As opposed to connectivism (Siemens, Downes) [[Netwerkleren Connectivism 20100421081941]] where the network is the knowledge itself.

    1. Siemens (2002) notes that learner-learner interactions in an e-learning course can be viewed as a four stage continuum:

      Communication People ‘talking,’ discussing Collaboration People sharing ideas and working together (occasionally sharing resources) in a loose environment Cooperation People doing things together, but each with his or her own purpose Community People striving for a common purpose

    1. Characteristics of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): A Research Review, 2009-2012.

      Full article available on EDSCO.

      Article presents characteristics of MOOCs such as varied definitions of "openness," barriers to completion, and structure. Concept of MOOCs is connectivist by design, yet researchers found that pedagogical application typically takes one of two approaches: either directed instruction stemming from cognitive-behaviorist or social constructivism.

    1. digitally mediated networked learning

      It's interesting to make this distinction. While I recognize that networked learning pre-dates the rise of the web, I suspect many students and educators would equate "network" with "the internet" at this point (and the internet means "Web 2.0" - that is, a collaborative space where the user/creator distinction is blurred).

    1. Both of these learning theories have a place in the spectrum of adult learning for the next generation of learners, however, with the increasing influence of social media and other connecting forces, and with the advent of Smartphone technology, communities are emerging where a clustering occurs of similar affinities (areas of interest), coupled with technology that is allowing an open environment of interaction, sharing, dialoguing and thinking together (Siemens, 2005).

      This article provides comparisons and contrasts between andragogy and transformative learning theory. It examines how the next generation of adults will learn, interact and share, therefore creating a more customized learning experience and adding personal meaning to the lives of the learners. 8/10
