It is amazing that the essence of ill-defined pedagogical knowledge can be represented with a simple pattern of General Systems Theory. We have revealed such a simple pattern/framework/ontology for systematic representation of content, experience, and knowledge of any complexity on any level of detail. Our approach allows creating so named Fractal Models of content, experience and knowledge.
According to the work of Ed Nuhfer, Director of Educational Effectiveness at Humboldt State University, teaching, learning, and thinking can also be represented by fractal models.
According to Wikipedia, the word “fractal” can be easily understood by analogy to zooming in with a lens that zooms in on digital images to uncover finer, previously invisible, new structure. If this is done on fractals, however, no new detail appears; nothing changes and the same pattern repeats over and over, or for some fractals, nearly the same pattern reappears over and over. People have pondered self-similarity informally such as in the infinite regress in parallel mirrors or the homunculus, the little man inside the head of the little man inside the head…
Fractal models may have beautiful graphical illustration.
