The Georgia 6th District Learning Community Can Help You Thrive in Our Hyper-connected World!
The Georgia 6th District Learning Community is the place for residents of the Georgia 6th District to build a better community through education and networking.
It is our resource for exploring and learning about the things that matter to us.
We tackle the big questions, like who to vote for in the next election. And we tackle small questions like what kind of home router to buy.
We look for the best answers to the questions that will help our community grow and prosper.

How do “Learning Communities” Work?
@lantis Learning Communities are built around the belief that there is more very useful information available than one individual can processes.
The parable of the blind men learning about an elephant is a perfect analogy.
The key here is that the blind men must acknowledge they are blind. And they must acknowledge they need help from others to truly understand the elephant. The problem is you really cannot trust the descriptions of others. Sometimes because others intentionally try to mislead. But, but often because of natural Conformational Biases and natural perceptual processes. Thus, we use what Ronald Reagan called, “Trust but Verify.”
By setting up a “Standard Learning Communication Process” whereby small groups of learners process individual pieces of information, called “Learning Nuggets,” and provide the metadata (metadata is a 21st century information concept) about the information the entire community is benefited.
