Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is a rich source of ideas. I've spent enough time exploring this item without knowing exactly what I'm looking at to decide it's worth passing along to you to see what you make of it. The core concept being explored here is 'enaction' - "There’s a significant difference between enacting and acting. Acting is following a script and taking on a role, a character that is different from your own. Enacting has no script and you do not take on a performance or play a character. You are playing yourself, and, as the expedition progresses, you enact more and more of your true self." Obviously there's a relation between this concept and those of learning design and learning environments. This post takes work - there's no linear thread and you have to dig around. There's a corresponding Facebook discussion as well which is worth a visit.
