Conceptual Clarity

Clark Quinn

Ok, so I can be a bit of a pedant. Blame it on my academic background, but I believe conceptual clarity is important ! If we play fast and loose with terminology, we can be be convinced of something without truly understanding it. Ultimately, we can waste money chasing unwarranted directions, and worse, perhaps even do wrong by our learners. Where do the problems arise? Sometimes, it’s easy to ride a bizbuzz bandwagon. Hey, the topic is hot, and it sounds good.

And in a comment, I mentioned that the recent launch of the new Firefox browser was prompting me to switch. And that’s now been put through a test, and I thought it instructive to share my learnings. The rationale for the switch is that I don’t completely trust Google and Apple with my data. Or anyone, really, for that matter. On principle.

Higher Ed & Job Skills?

Clark Quinn

I sat in on a twitter chat yesterday, #DLNChat, that is a higher ed tech focused group (run by EdSurge ). The topic was the link between higher ed and job skills, and I was a wee bit cynical. While I think there are great possibilities, the current state of the art leaves a lot to be desired. So, I currently don’t think higher ed does a good job of preparation for success in business. Higher ed focuses too much on knowledge, and uses assignments that don’t resemble the job activities.
