emergent by design Home who’s the architect? Different versions emerged all over the world, but they all had something in common: There was a scarcity of resources, and so the systems were competition-based. This all hit me like a bolt of lightening, a pattern that emerged out of all the complex information. I agree if I can follow the thinkers with whom I am challenged and or akin then I have a sustainable model for co- creativity.

Wenger argues for a more realistic adoption and expectation of learning, and challenges us to rethink learning, by introducing a ‘new’ social learning theory that is centered around social participation, being active participants in the practices of social communities and constructing identities in relation to these communities (p.4).
