Crossing the Threshold
Share one new idea you learned about early civilizations with your group. Explain it carefully so that you are sure they understand it and can pass it on to others.
- How did the ability to communicate accelerate the agricultural revolution? What processes would have been impossible without this ability?
- Are you able to compare and contrast this revolution with the technology revolution we are now in the midst of? How is comparing and contrasting an example of the concept of collective learning?
- How is your reading assignment and your website assignment an example of the concept?
Join your group with another group and talk about what you have learned so far about early civilizations. How is adding more people to the group an example of collective learning?
