Knowledge, Learning, Community
Writing from the Middle East, Jay Cross explores the role of conversation in learning. I like this take [my insertions]: "Emergence is the key characteristic of complex systems [like networks]... Emergent learning enables us to push beyond the confines of elearning to explore combinations with informal learning [in other words, collective intelligence]... Imagine that conversation is the core process for accessing collective intelligence and co-evolving the future."
