Interesting item. Here's what I would like to key on: "Understanding is built by making connections between as many strands of knowledge as possible." This is significant. The idea is to encourage students to see these connections, to allow them to create their own understanding of reality ('construct' is, of course, the wrong word here). The components of this understanding form a network. The same principles that govern the organization of people (see the 'Bioteams' stuff) also govern the organization of ideas.
