My students must agree with Dr. Siemens. I teach an introductory programming course using Java as the vehicle. The course is not about Java, but more about how you program, so we don't go into detail. The students this year decided to add JTables and JLists to their coursework despite these being neither taught nor required. They used social media to disseminate their finds, created a mutual support network ... and got the grades their inventiveness deserved. Long live connectivism.
Excellent - however, I still worry that education is something that is being done to students rather than by them. The future role of the teacher would be to facilitate and create a social environment (current schools give much more than just learning) rather than as an authority figure.

We took the family (four children and six adults). There was something for everyone and the children really enjoyed it. We can recommend this theme park highly. As Arnie (and Gen. MacArthur) said, "we'll be back".
