Narrative as abductive acts of knowing

An earlier version of the diagram on the left first emerged over a couple of days with ad hoc drawing on a paper table cloth in a cafe in Sitges on the coast of Catalonia south-east of Barcelona. The diagram uses two dimensions of the i-Space namely abstraction and codification.

My Professional Learner’s Toolkit

Favorite browser and search engine : I use Safari and Google, by default. I would prefer another search engine, probably DuckDuckGo, but I’m not facile with it, for instance finding images. I use Omnigraffle for diagrams and mindmaps.

Top 10 Tools for Learning 2016

Clark Quinn

So here’re my votes, FWIW: Google Search is, of course, still my top tool. Omnigraffle is as always my diagramming tool, and it’s definitely a way I express and refine my thinking. Obviously, you’ll see my diagrams here, but also in presentations and articles/chapters/books. It helps me turn my ideas from diagrams and/or writing into a story to tell with visual support. It’s that time again: Jane Hart is running her 2016 (and 10th!)

Meta-learn what?

Clark Quinn

What you actively seek really is your searching abilities. When do you google, when do you do an internal search, when do you check out a book? Do you know how to make a good search string? Do you diagram, write, make a video, ? Wondering if I should try to diagram this… meta-learning strategyIf, indeed, learning is the new business imperative , what does that mean we need to learn? What are the skills that we want to have, or need to develop?

Top 10 Tools for Learning

Clark Quinn

OmniGraffle is the tool I use to diagram, one of the ways I understand and communicate things. Google is my search tool. Among the many things my colleague Jane Hard does for our community is to compile the Top 100 Tools for learning each year. I think it’s a very interesting exercise, showing how we ourselves learn, and the fact that it’s been going on for a number of years provides interesting insight.

Site Learnings

Clark Quinn

I reckon these are good things to be consistent, but while I sometimes include diagrams, I haven’t been rabid about including images. See, one of the other recommendations was to be more closely tied to Google’s tools for tracking sites, specifically Search Console. Now, I’d try to do this once I’d gotten all my sites tied into Google Analytics, including searching the WP file folders, and browsing a number, to no avail.

Personal Mobile Mastery

Clark Quinn

And you can use search engines and reference tools just the same. Or even sketching or diagramming. Certainly searching things you don’t understand or, when there’s unknown language, seeing if you can get a translation, are also options. A conversation with a colleague prompted a reflection. The topic was personal learning, and in looking for my intersections (beyond my love of meta-learning ), I looked at my books.

Reimagining Learning

Clark Quinn

However, I was growing through the diagrams that I’d created on my iPad, and discovered one that I’d frankly forgotten. For all I can recall, the origin of the diagram may have been an attempt to contextualize Tin Can in a broad context!).

Cognitive prostheses

Clark Quinn

Also, the format of working memory largely is ‘verbal’ Consequently, using tools like diagramming, outlines, or mindmaps add structure to our knowledge and support our ability to work on it. But external sources like the ability to look up or search for information is far better than trying to get it in the head. While our cognitive architecture has incredible capabilities (how else could we come up with advances such as Mystery Science Theater 3000?),

Sharing pointedly or broadly

Clark Quinn

In a (rare) fit of tidying, I was moving from one note-taking app to another, and found a diagram I’d jotted, and it rekindled my thinking. It should be noted that in the ‘broadcast’ model, not everyone may be aware that there’s a new message, if they’re not ‘following’ the poster of the message, but it should be findable by search if not directly.

You would think this would be a relatively straightforward question, but the truth is that I have to keep changing my answer, because my techniques are constantly shifting as new forms of search or discovery become possible.
