Hello again,

I just finished Siemen’s “Connectivism” article and a few points struck me. First, I believe that much of what Siemen said in this 2004 article is even more relevant today. With Facebook, twitter, email, smartphones, etc, there is no doubt that we have reorganized the way we learn, communicate, and live. Siemen also discussed the importance of informal learning as opposed to formal learning. What do you think the difference is between “formal” and “informal” learning? Would our Museum Technologies class be considered “formal” or “informal” learning?
