The vertices or nodes of the graph are the learning activities. Learners perform some of these activities individually, some in teams, and others with the whole class. The graph has a geometric nature, time being represented horizontally and social organization (individual, team, class) vertically.

These activities can be inspired by heterogeneous learning theories; a graph models the integration of heterogeneous activities into a coherent pedagogical scenario. The edges of the graph connect activities. They represent the two-fold relationship between activities—how they relate to each other from a pedagogical and from an operational viewpoint.
