Week 3 - Connective Knowledge

Dates: January 31 - February 7, 2011

Overview
In knowledge that could be described as connective, a property of one entity must lead to or become a property of another entity in order for them to be considered connected; the knowledge that results from such connections is connective knowledge. Connective knowledge requires an interaction. More to the point, connective knowledge is knowledge of the connection.

Activities
At this point in the course, we've had an opportunity to discuss connectivism broadly (week 1) and network attributes (week 2). In week 3, we'll look at connective and rhizomatic knowledge. Concept mapping is one way to explore how connections produce patterns of knowledge. Explore how course concept are related by downloading a concept mapping tools such as Visual Understanding Environment and begin detaining the connections between course concepts.
