Power of Networks

Amazing power of networks, well illustrated with animated graphics.  Earlyz expands his concepts on networks in teaching and learning. He says that: “When students discover those networked connections, they begin to see the real world value in what they learn at school. In other words, authentic learning happens in the network.”  I think networked connections need to go beyond what they learn at school, in order to fully understand how such connections relate to the community, networks, and the ecology.

I could find so much ideas in common with those I have reflected here in my  posts:

  1. I fully agree! Making those real world connections allows the content in school to mesh with our lives outside the classroom. Thanks for the mention!
