Maybe I just don't get it...

So, here is the thing: sharing knowledge and passing it on has been present in human race for ages. It is in our nature, to question, to solve, to invent, and to socialize; which means this new idea of connectivism, has been present for a long time; not just in the 2.0 era.

“Experience has long been considered the best teacher of knowledge…” (Karen Stephenson) True- but it happens around the world without the need of technology. What happens in a third world country where communities have no exposure to a computer? How do they learn? By sharing experiences and passing on wisdom from generation to generation….is that connectivism then? Building on experience? So, who is “connectivism” aimed to? To which society? To what group of people?
Connectivism exists outside computers and bandwidth…
