The most significant thing I learnt from the readings and blog post for Week 1 of NGL is the connections of previously learnt knowledge to NGL. Networked and global learning has existed all along even without the internet.
The question that remains uppermost in my mind is not the creating of more networks, but the harnessing of information, sense-making. There is no shortage of information, it is an overload, an assault – why on earth would I contribute more or do I even have something more to contribute? As I have written these posts (only for the course!) I add more bit rot that will not be of use to anyone beyond this course.
