Sosyal etkiletişimin önemi, digital çağ ile birlikte öğrenmenin etkisini de giderek artırmaktadır. Digital dünyada, digital vatandaş olmanın etkileri araştırma konularında önemli yer almaktadır. Digital çağ ve bilgisayar temelli iletişim, işbirliğine bağlı öğrenmenin ve tecrübe temelli öğrenmenin yeniden düşünülmesine olanak sağlamıştır. Bu bağlamda, sosyal ağların kullanımı, diyalog geliştirme için grup oluşturulmasında, haberdar olma, sorma ve eleştirisel bakma gib birçok faktörü biraraya getirmesi açısından, bağlantısal öğrenme kuramı kapsamındadır. Bu araştırmanın amacı, bağlantısal öğrenme kuramının uygulamadaki yerini ortaya koymaktır. Diyalog ve görüşme için facebook gruplarının çevrimiçi sosyal öğrenme ortamının sağlanılmasını dikkate alan bu çalışmada 35 stajer öğrencinin kişisel görüş raporları ile bu teorinin ne kadar etkili kullanıldığını elde etmektedir. Bu bağlamda, öğrenme, kişisel liderlik, karar alma ve yansıtma becerileri de değerlendirilmiştir. Eylem çalışması temelli bu çalışmada, öğrenmenin bireysel öğrenme temelli olmadığını ve digital çağda öğrenmenin bağlantısal öğrenme kuramının temellerini taşıdığını görmekteyiz
The impact of the digital age within learning and social interaction has been growing rapidly. The realm of digital age and computer mediated communication requires reconsidering instruction based on collaborative interactive learning process and socio-contextual experience for learning. Social networking sites such as facebook can help create group space for digital dialogue to inform, question and challenge within a frame of connectivism as learning theory within the digital age. The aim of this study is to elaborate the practice of connectivism as learning theory in terms of internship course. Facebook group space provided social learning platform for dialogue and negotiation beside the classroom learning and teaching process in this study. The 35 internship students provided self-reports within a frame of this qualitative research. This showed how principles of theory practiced and how this theory and facebook group space contribute learning, selfleadership, decision making and reflection skills. As the research reflects a practice of new theory based on action research, learning is not individualistic attempt in the digital age as regards the debate on learning in digital age within a frame of connectivism
