The way we learn is usually more important than the knowledge we have already gained till now. That is what George Siemens tries to argue. He elaborates on the connectivism between diverse opinions about a topic, the way various learning processes and sources connect to enable knowledge building to occur.
Siemens deals with 5 knowledge types: knowing about, knowing to do, knowing to be, knowing where, knowing to transform. Each of them intertwines the knowledge and skills being build during our everyday experience.
