Patterns & significance

Dave Snowden

Another with a colleague frustrated by people talking about the validity of statistical patterns for low volume datasets and not realising that simple visualisation can enable an intelligent person who make sufficient sense to act. An obsession that attempts a substitution for sense-making, rather than as a tool to support it. Polemic

Pattern Learning and the Brain

Expertise at pattern recognition is a very different brain-based process than expertise at rule-based learning or a motor skill.

Share Best Practices - Patterns

Making sense generates cues and allows one to recognize patterns, both in the nature of the problem and response. This really rings true to me.

Capture Examples

Tony Karrer

The primary reasons for doing the eLearning Tour was that it is hard to see examples of what is being done by fellow eLearning professionals and get a sense of the patterns that exist. So first question – after participating or viewing the videos for the event: Is it helpful to capture examples? received quite a few responses.

Pattern Recognition as Skill

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to John Martin : "However I am not sure that it (pattern recognition) is an innate feature as opposed to a learned skill." It is both. Because these connections are sensitive to input, they will reflect patterns in that input. This is not a conscious act; it is not the same as saying we are looking for patterns.

The social enterprise?

George Siemens

We need better analytics that can reveal patterns and connections in information abundance that we may have missed. We need technologies that can automatically detect and raise the profile of interesting patterns within an information stream. An event collapses the information trail into a state of patterns that seem obvious.

Reactivating Learning

Clark Quinn

At a neural level, we’re generating patterns of activation in conjunction, which strengthens the relationships between these patterns, increasing the likelihood that they’ll get activated when relevant.

On the Three or Four Problems of Connectivism

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

This paradox, first posed by Socrates (Plato, 2002), can be applied to connectivism as follows: How do you recognize a pattern if you do not already know that a specific configuration of connections is a pattern? Internally, we can appear to examples of self-organization. For example, consider J.J. would like to do both.
