Thinking of knowledge as a graph

Jenny Connected

This is a response to the E-Learning 3.0 This is the real challenge, i.e. moving from thinking and seeing knowledge in a linear way to thinking and seeing knowledge as a network/graph. This informs not only what we learn, but how we learn. E-Learning 3.0,
