  4. 4. ConnectivismConnectivism:a theory of learning based on the premise that knowledge exists in the world rather than in the head of an individualOne aspect of connectivism is the use of a network with nodes and connections as a central metaphor for learning. In this metaphor, a node is anything that can be connected to another node within a network such as an organisation: information, data, feelings, images.Connectivism sees learning as the process of creating connections and developing a network.
  5. 5. Curation....... the process of establishing and developing long term repositories of digital assets for current and future reference by researchers, scientists, historians, and scholars.Enterprises are starting to utilize digital curation to improve the quality of information and data within their operational and strategic processes..• ..... is expression, action and passion!
