Personal knowledge is comprised of a network, which feeds into organizations and institutions, which in turn feed back into the network, and then continue to provide learning to individual. This cycle of knowledge development (personal to network to organization) allows learners to remain current in their field through the connections they have formed.” George Siemens Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/connectivism.htm
