Learning in complex knowledge             spaces         George Siemens        November 15, 2011          Rijeka, Croatia ...
Our education system must map to the   reality of society today, namely:
Abundance of Information
Complexity(dynamicconnectedness)of knowledgeand knowledgespaces                 Barry Kade, 2009
Complex systems:“a set of diverse actors who dynamically interactwith one another awash in a sea of feedbacks.”           ...
Re-balancing of powerFrom organization to individualFrom individual to “the machine”
Abundance has always been with us,          but now it’s,              um,        more abundant
More is different
Complexity is different

If “it” changes how we interact with             information
Or how we interact with each other…
Then it will impact teaching, learning,               education
Or, put another way:       Education systems track the   architecture of information of an era
And, wow, we’re messing with the   architecture of information
(think of these examples not as specific tools,but as new affordances; new action potential)
