Knowledge, Learning, Community
This post rambles a bit but is probably worth a look for some thoughts - a restatement, for example, of the idea that knowing is essentially 'connecting' (which, in turn, to my mind, is pattern recognition - but I digress). There are also indistinct links to embodiment, affordances, and slow learning (a pretty obvious derivative of the whole 'slow food' movement). The strength of weak ties. In related news, I have edited and (slightly) revised my cornerstone essay on the subject, An Introduction to Connective Learning, which is now available an an MS-Word document.
