In this example, a MOOC participant posts on her blog and in the community about her research on the Doppler and RedShift effects from the Outdoor Science week. She develops these ideas through photography and art, and posts the results on G+. The resulting commentary includes a discussion about STEM to STEAM, passing on new ideas and resources, and a sharing of artistic techniques which prompts an intention to transfer to practice from another teacher. These ideas move from the digital to the physical domain and back again. Peer to peer learning occurs naturally, arising out of social behaviour and we can see that the collective learning potential exceeds that of the individual.
