      21st century skills are more right-brain dependent. And right-brain predominance iterates more easily back and forth between left and right hemispheres.

      • Build relationships with others to pose and solve problems collaboratively and  cross-culturally
      • Design and share information for global communities to meet a variety of purposes

      • Connective knowledge is knowledge that could be described as distributed , because it is spread across more than one entity. A property of one entity must lead to or become a property of another entity in order for them to be considered connected; the knowledge that results from such connections is connective knowledge .
      • Learning is a network forming process
      • Capacity to know more is more critical than what is known
      • Learning rests in aggregating diverse, often opposing, views
      • Content is often the by-product of the learning process – not the starting point
      • Connections, not content, are the beginning point of the learning process
      • Learning can reside in non-human appliances
      • Knowledge can rest within our networks not only internally in ourselves
      • Ability to see connections (pattern recognition) between ideas and concepts critical to learning
      • Currency (up to date knowledge) is the intent of properly created learning networks
      • Decision making is in itself a learning process
      • George Siemens, www.connectivism.ca
    • Ross Mayfield, Oct. 2008 The periphery of this network contains three groups of nodes that are usually tied to the core through looser ties: 1) Those new to the community and working to get to the core 2) Bridges to diverse communities elsewhere 3) Unique resources that operate outside of the community, and may span many communities.
      • “… knowledge embedded in societies or large groups of people”
