Change your work to include what you want to know and become. Explicit Knowledge. #1 1 is explicit knowledge. By definition, explicit knowledge can be captured in words. It’s the facts. Answers on Jeopardy. Tree/false tests.

About this change to the site…

Clark Quinn

It had some problems, but I was afraid to change it because of the repercussions. A little background… My ISP, a good friend, colleague, and mentor, was making some changes to how my sites are implemented. It made sense, because if anyone could get access to my admin code, they could not only change the look and feel (easy to fix), they could alter the code and put in malicious stuff. And, I found, it was pretty much click and type to create a new sidebar.

Changing the landscape of health

To manage a complex system we need to changes the dispositions of populations and small level social interactions. People are fundamentally influenced by the micro narratives of their day to day lives, rather than grand narratives of change and admonishment.

The Power of Reflection in an Ever-Changing World

Climate Change, Waste & Festivals: a collective fight needing a common understanding

Dave Snowden

it also has the potential to mobilise momentum and drive change through the sharing of stories about what people are doing to make the world a better place. Building small, incremental change has always been the complexity mantra. When thinking about change and transformation, we were particularly interested in the idea of apathy, simplicity and the importance of time, e.g. are people thinking ahead or are there “more important things to do”?

Touch Typing - Cursive Writing - Why?

Tony Karrer

I'm not sure if it's only our school district, but 4th graders (9 year olds) spend considerable time learning cursive writing and are not taught touch typing. And will it change in the next two years before my youngest becomes a 4th grader This is especially troubling because students certainly are expected to write their assignments on a computer. Oh, that is unless the teacher wants them to write it in cursive just to help them learn how to write in cursive.

Types of Knowledge and Connective Knowledge

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Historically, we have had two types of knowledge: First, 'qualitative' knowledge. These two types of knowledge account for most of what we know about things that there are out there in the world. These two types of knowledge combine the best of human capacities: our ability to perceive, to sense the world, and our ability to calculate, to think about the world. In the 20th century, things changed. There are different types of meaning, said some.
