Progress and Learning in cck11

According to Stephen, if I achieve the following (conventional)

standards of success:

– fluency with and use of a certain vocabulary

– exposure to and familiarity with a standard body of literature

– conduct of enquiry in a generally accepted form of discourse

– acceptance of an underlying set of principles

then I will have become a groupist (groupie? grouper?) rather than a connectivist.

So I guess I should stop trying to talk the language of networks and connective knowledge, ignore the suggested readings, try to make my discourse less acceptable to a serious audience, and deny the underlying principles of connectivism.

Maybe I’m a better student than I thought!
