    16. 22. Rhizomatic Learning Dave Cormier http://innovateonline.info/index.php?view=article&id=550 A rhizomatic plant has no center and no defined boundary ; rather, it is made up of a number of semi-independent nodes, each of which is capable of growing and spreading on its own, bounded only by the limits of its habitat (Cormier 2008 ). …. In the rhizomatic view, knowledge can only be negotiated , and the contextual, collaborative learning experience shared by constructivist and connectivist pedagogies is a social as well as a personal knowledge-creation process with mutable goals and constantly negotiated premises.
    17. 23. <ul><li>The rhizome metaphor, which represents a critical leap in coping with the loss of a canon against which to compare, judge, and value knowledge, may be particularly apt as a model for disciplines on the bleeding edge where the canon is fluid and knowledge is a moving target . </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Thank you, Dave! </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
