Each Learning Community comes up with their own data, facts, conclusions, recommended actions, and Learning Tracks.

As each Learning Community comes up with new data, facts, conclusions, recommended actions, and/or Learning Tracks, they will can choose to make that information available to other Learning Communities.

Every time the Personal Learning Community learns something they believe can help others they “Push” the packets into the Cloud.  Then each learning community can monitor the Cloud and determine, based on the Meta-data, to download the information to their learning Community, for further analysis or storage.  Then the Learning Community puts notices to the members of the community that there are new data, facts, conclusions, recommended actions, and/or learning tracks.

The key here is that along with data, facts, conclusions, and/or learning tracks, is the “meta-data” that provides the transparency to the information so each Learning Community can determine what to do with it.
