Ken's Key Takeaway:
I like the new term Personal Knowledge Network (PKN)
Here are some quotes directly from the attached article:
Knowledge ecologies are thus self-controlled and self-contained entities.
Knowledge ecologies lacked a shared repertoire and are thus open and distributed knowledge domains.
The result of participation in a knowledge ecology is a restructuring of one’s PKN, a reframing of one’s theories-in-use and an extension of one’s external network with new tacit and explicit knowledge nodes; i.e. people and information (external level)
Knowledge ecology is a more general concept than intensional networks.
In essence, a knowledge ecology is a complex adaptive system that emerges from the bottom-up connection of PKNs.
