inscript -> notes -> knowledge management -> organising knowledge

two key problems for those who want to communicate knowledge:

- the problem of structure

=> each concept is made up of "knowledge elements"1:p2 which are structured in a a way that will best communicate a given idea
-> making sense of a concept requires the reader to understand the structure of the explanation
->> visual representations can help lower the reader's input energy requisite for comprehension

- the problem of multiple knowledge levels
does it though? not sure I buy this

=> "knowledge has hierarchical structure"1:p2
-> "complex explanations need multiple connected levels organised by detail and importance"ibid.
->> differentiated levels of details more effectively helps a diverse range of learning with a diverse range of learning needs/goals

potential solutions:

- providing visual representations of knowledge structures using diagrams, tables, etc. alongside category names and descriptions
- include in those representations explicit differentiation of existing knowledge levels
->> encourages "at-a-glance" understanding, allowing for learners to easily choosee what at content they would like to engage with, and at what level of detail

concept mapping -> a practice where these solutions can be applied
maps of content -> a potentially useful framework for differentiating levels of details
