The significant use of electronic media in everyday life requires new considerations about learning, about communication, about being in the spaces of ubiquity. Siemenes (2005) proposed the theory of networks, the learning through networks, the connections between nodes, which Landow (2006), Bolter (1991, 1996, 2001), Cassany (2012) have at different times called even if other terms. The relevance of the theory of Connectivism offers new fields of investigation and experimentation for the area of education, which deserve reflections and insights that enable to validate, based on the need for education and training simultaneous, the applicability of a theory of networks.
