Connectivity, the Answer to Ending Ignorance and Separation: Can You Hear Me Yet?
Although there are several books on the new network science, none have discussed education or content for learning on the Internet until now. Connectivity, the Answer to Ending Ignorance and Separation: Can You Hear Me Yet? proposes that the new network science reveals the natural setting of human learning is a web of nodes and links. The subtitle echoes the book's call for universal mobile connectivity that will include every man, woman, and child in the global community. The hot new network science that explains why we are all separated by about six degrees and why crickets synchronize their evening love songs is directed here by Judy Breck for the first time to education. From the same theories, she describes an entirely new medium of expression platformed in connectivity and now emerging to create compelling new learning assets that are nestling into an online webbed matrix of academic subjects. She argues that standards and grade separation in schools today are network errors and should be abandoned for the natural knowledge context formation arising spontaneously within the Internet. Breck says networks may replace schools altogether and that one of the great boons universal individual connectivity will bring, along with the end of ignorance and separation, is the disappearance of terrorism. Connectivity, she explains, changes everything when we all study on a common virtual ground and when we can all be heard. This book contains parallel discussions of how network connectivity is fundamentally: Diminishing terrorism, Transforming business enterprises, Becoming a new artistic expressive medium, Providing a new and different locus for human knowledge.Connectivity is written for every educator eager to know about networks.
