Connectivism in context

Mark Smith, in his entry on learning theory1, presents a table of 'four orientations to learning' which compares Behaviourist, Cognitivist, Humanist and Social / Situational orientations of learning theories.

This does a lot of the work of adding the aspects of 'Communities of Practice' in to George Siemens' comparison table which is something I wanted to work on.

So I have posted it as a Google Doc with some additions.
