Diagramming

Clark Quinn

So yesterday I talked about the value of diagrams , but I thought I’d add a bit about the process of actually creating diagrams. Naturally, I created a diagram about it. I created this diagram for a session I ran on diagramming a number of years ago. In that session I talked about our cognitive architecture, why we need models, how diagrams work, properties and design issues, and more. It captures an ideal picture of how diagramming could work.

Example Diagram

Clark Quinn

No, not a diagram that’s an example, a diagram about examples! I created this because I needed a diagram to represent examples. I’ve written about them, and I have diagrams for other components of learning like models.

Diagramming Microlearning

Clark Quinn

And, as part of my usual wrestling with clarity, I created a diagram. The post Diagramming Microlearning appeared first on Learnlets. I’ll be giving an upcoming webinar where I make my case for defining microlearning. I thought I’d share it with you. What, you want me to walk you through it? Microlearning is a portmanteau (technical term: mashup) of micro and learning. Thus, it implies small bits of learning. Here I’m mapping it out in several ways.

Diagram!

Clark Quinn

One of the things that I feel is a really useful tool in my ongoing learning, in my ‘making sense of the world’ is diagramming. I find diagrams to be a really powerful way to understand not just elements, but relationships. And yet it doesn’t feel like diagramming gets enough respect. So I want to make a case for the diagram. My PhD advisor kindly pointed out that actually parsing this was hard, and recommended a diagram instead.

Practicing the Preach

Clark Quinn

I usually use Omnigraffle as a diagramming tool, to represent my conceptual understandings. But I started with a diagram, and took the elements out and mindmapped them, and threw in other bits. In short, the ‘diagram’ has become a visual place to store bits and pieces of different diagrams, representations, mindmap, prose, or more. I haven’t done this before (I’ve used storyboards and diagrams), but I find it interesting.

Besides writing, two ways I sort out my understandings are to diagram and to outline. I use OmniGraffle as a general purpose diagramming tool because, well, it largely works the way I want to think about it. Diagrams, mind maps, even recently as sort of posterboard.

Modelling

Clark Quinn

I had to submit my deck for my DevLearn workshop on Cognitive Science for Learning Design last week, but oddly, for every thing I was recommending I had a diagram, except for the notion of using models. This is ironic, since diagrams can be used to convey models. And then I remembered that I gave a presentation years ago specifically on diagrams. Moreover, in that presentation I had a diagram for a process for creating a diagram (Department of Redundancy Department).

Cognition external

Clark Quinn

And I’ll talk it out first here, and maybe a diagram will emerge. I shared Jane Hart’s diagram yesterday, and I know that it’s a revision of a prior one. The diagram is capturing her framework, and such externalizations are a way to share; they’re a social as well as artifactual sharing. I was thinking a bit about distributed cognition, and recognized that there as a potentially important way to tease that apart.

In this third post I want to consider the L&D roles for enabling this, so in the diagram below I’ve plotted them onto the diagram I have been using in the last two posts. From this diagram, three broad roles become apparent to support the multitude of activities that were described in my second post.

A very insightful framework

Clark Quinn

And I’m not sure there’s what I call ‘slow’ innovation there, creating a culture and practices about experimentation and exposure to the ‘adjacent possible’ But it’s hard for one diagram to capture everything, and this does a great job. But as an advocate of diagrams and frameworks, I think this is truly insightful and useful. Jane Hart has just come up with something new and, to me, intriguing.

Unpacking collaboration and cooperation?

But this has bugged me, so I naturally tried to make a diagram that helps me think about it. My colleague, Harold Jarche ( the PKM guy), has maintained that cooperation is of more value than collaboration.

Useful cognitive overhead

Clark Quinn

As background, I diagram. A famous cognitive science article talked about how diagrams are representations that map conceptual relationships to spatial ones, to use the power of our visual system to facilitate comprehension. Now, what I realized (as I was diagramming) is that the way I diagram actually leverages cognitive overhead in a productive way. I can use a whiteboard, but usually to communicate a diagram already conceived.

Contexts By Cognitions

Clark Quinn

I generated the first diagram several days ago and had been iterating on it, but not today. The resulting diagram appears similar, but also some differences. So, in my last post , I talked about exploring the links between cognitions on the one hand (situated, distributed, social), and contexts (aligning with how we think, work, & learn). I did it one way, but then I thought to do it another, to instead consider Contexts by Cognitions, to see if I came to the same elements.

Curious about Curiosity

Clark Quinn

He had a nice diagram (my revision here) that distinguished various forms of motivation. When you’re looking into motivation, particularly for learning, certain elements get mentioned again and again. So I’ve heard ‘relevance’, ‘ meaningfulness ‘, consequences, and more. Friston suggests that we learn to minimize surprise. One I’ve heard, and wrestled with, is curiosity. It’s certainly aligned with surprise.
