  4. 4. Learning Networks and Connective Knowledge <ul><li>Based on a model of Distributive knowledge </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The the idea that knowledge is not located in any given place and therefore cannot be transferred or transacted by consists of a network of connections formed by experience and interactions with the knowing community. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Requires varying levels of engagement : </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Individual to content, Individual to individual, Individual to Interface, Individual to self </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Understand that Knowledge is: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Sub-symbolic, Distributed, Interconnected, Personal & Emergen t </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Knowledge Community: Characteristics <ul><li>Focused on problems , not topics: knowledge is advanced through discussion and argumentation in the effort to understand concepts and resolve discrepancies. </li></ul><ul><li>Decentralized , open knowledge building, with a focus on collective knowledge : through constructive social interactions with others engaged in similar or related problems. </li></ul><ul><li>More knowledgeable members are engaged in the knowledge-building process, but do not delineate the limits of investigation. </li></ul><ul><li>Less knowledgeable members' participation is valued as it determines the gaps, inadequacies, difficulties in the knowledge being created that can demand a clarification of ideas by the 'experts'. </li></ul><ul><li>Engages a broader knowledge community than that involved in the current local problem, bringing in views from the outside. </li></ul><ul><li>Makes for a &quot;second order environment&quot; (one where the one's adaption to the environment changes the environment itself) where one's contributions can determine what contributions will follow , thus changing the direction of the discourse and the knowledge constructed. </li></ul>
