Sketching the four quadrants.
In the upper left quadrant, you quickly sketch out a picture of a person deep in thought. This icon in the PERSONAL box represents the invisible interior world of the individual: personal awareness and values, personal style and attitudes.
In the lower left quadrant, you sketch a hand holding a group or family safely within its grasp. This icon in the TEAM box represents the invisible interior world of the collective: shared values, vision and language, the webs of culture and worldview in which each individual operates.
In the upper right quadrant, you sketch a person working. This icon in the PROFESSIONAL box represents the visible exterior world of the individual: personal capabilities and competences, professional behaviours, measurable performance.
In lower right quadrant, you sketch a typical urban environment or any environment with visible social structures. This icon in the INFRASTRUCTURE box represents the visible exterior world of the collective: social system, organizational systems, information systems, technical environments and so on in which people live and work.
I wonder how connective knowledge might match the individual and collective needs through the four quadrants just sketched.
This is my half-formed thought for this week, not really a contribution to the group discussion, I know. It is only an attempt to classify (SOS…need your Help).
P.S. Here is a mindmapping reading of Learning Networks and Connective Knowledge by Stephen Downes.
