Necessary and Sufficient Conditions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The discussion of 'necessary and sufficient conditions' is well understood in philosophy, and as a result, I sometimes make the mistake of assuming it is commonly understood in the wider community. This post redresses this by sketching the concept and why it is important. The most common example of a condition is a cause. well, you get the idea.

Learning Styles, Brain-Based Learning, and Daniel Willingham

Clark Quinn

I’ve gone off on learning styles before because there’s a lot of fluff and not much substance.  I’d been pointed to Dan Willingham ’s video on brain based learning, and in pointing it to someone else, found his one on learning styles. Hear, hear (and not “see see&# or “feel feel&# :).

Firing Teachers

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to Clay Burrell. One of the myths prevalent in discussions about the education system is that union rule prohibit the firing of bad teachers. This goes completely against my experiences of interactions with actual teachers, who, collectively, respond like a herd of frightened gazelles. Why are they so frightened, if they can't be fired?

Concept Worker

Tony Karrer

Daniel Pink's book A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future contains a description of new age - the Conceptual Age.

Tony Karrer

One of the barriers commonly cited during my presentations around eLearning 2.0 (use of Web 2.0 / social media for work and learning) is that organizations often have not established their policies or guidelines around the use of these tools. Unfortunately, companies sticking their head in the sand doesn't do any good. Companies need a policy.
