Week03 Insights:
Connective Knowledge: Learning is a process of connecting specialized nodes or information sources. Capacity to know more is more critical than what is currently known. Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate continual learning. Ability to see connections between fields, ideas and concepts is a core skill (Stephen Downes)
Rhizomatic Knowledge: Learning is fluid with no defined boundary – not located in established patterns from previously accepted ideas or current disciplines. Knowledge is formed from information useful to the community and is legitimized in a distributed negotiation among members. Capacity involves growing, reaping and spreading collaborative knowledge from more involved members. Ability to trace emergent knowledge on the bleeding edge, while acting as core member that carry weight and engaging extensively in the discussion, is a core skill (Dave Cormier)

Week03 Thoughts:
Concept mapping is a graphical representation of knowledge that explores how connections produce patterns of knowledge. I explored “Spicy Nodes” and think it was good and easy to use:

Week03 Questions:
• I think we can tell when someone have expertise in a domain, but how do we explain and describe their high level of knowledge? This is what I want to investigate next week…
