Two types of knowledge

Jay Cross

For example, you can know a lot about cooking but until you have tacit knowledge, you can’t call yourself a chef. 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.

Exploring Business Types and Business Models

John Hagel

But I’ve also written a lot about business types/roles, including a popular Harvard Business Review article almost 20 years ago. Many of you have approached me to ask, so what’s the difference between a business model and a business type? And, if there is a difference, what business models should each business type adopt? And, not to keep you in suspense, there is a difference between business models and business types as I use them. OK, I’ve created some confusion.

Leadership by Example

Harold Jarche

Here are two examples. Management and leadership are similar types of abilities. As can be seen by Dr. Brant’s second example, with modelling, the learner is progressively supported. Leadership by example becomes the key. Leadership training usually does not work.

Types and Tokens

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It's a simple comparison, graphing the candidates' word use by tokens and types, as follows: To count tokens, you simply add +1 to the count each time the candidate utters a word. To count types, you add +1 to the count each time the candidate utters a new word. Just what is a type?

Two Examples of Nonprofit Social Media That Will Make You Smile (and learn a best practice or two)

Beth Kanter

Today I’m seeking out examples of how nonprofits use cute dogs, cats, or babies in their social media to feel good, but also extract a social media best practice or two so it doesn’t feel like a “waste of time.”

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. And while I believe that I gave a flavor of what's happening out there through the tour, my gut tells me that it would be helpful to capture more examples. So first question – after participating or viewing the videos for the event: Is it helpful to capture examples?

Social Learning Examples

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Next, Jane details using social media for different types of learning. Here’s an example of what I’m talking about: Thanks, Jane, for making life easier. At DevLearn, many people lamented the difficulty of explaining the benefits of social media to their managers and peers.

Types of Blog Discussions

Tony Karrer

See Five Things Meme as an example. as an example. I've been involved with several different groups of people who are having different kinds of discussions that happen among bloggers. The most common models of blog discussions seem to have turned into a few patterns: Organic Blog Discussions - someone posts something interesting, lots of bloggers post on the topic, distributed discussion ensues. Blog Tag Memes - Someone posts a question and "Tags" five people to give their response.

Types of Meaning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I don't want to spend a whole lot of time on this, but I do want to take enough time to be clear that there are, unambiguously, numerous types of meaning. Consider the classic constructivist activity of 'making meaning', for example. Herewith, a bit of an account of some of the many different types of meaning: Literal meaning - the sentence means what it says. Which types of language is the word used in: letters or reports, spoken or written, biology or business etc?"

Net uncovers new type of cloud

David Weinberger

There are reports of a new type of cloud , one that is not currently in the official International Cloud Atlas. For example, the University of Illinois’ “ cloud types &# page lists four broad categories, and a list of miscellaneous clouds, each of which is categorized under one of the four basic types, evoking a “Huh?&# Missouri-Columbia lists eight types.

Types of Knowledge and Connective Knowledge

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Historically, we have had two types of knowledge: First, 'qualitative' knowledge. What colour the object is, for example. How many things do we see, for example. 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.

Euen Semple

Even the discomfort I often feel when typing can be an example of this. I tend to bash on, trying to type faster than I actually can. But recently I have begun to slow down and notice my typing more, allowing myself that microsecond of awareness, giving myself the chance to notice which key I am about to press and then, most importantly, not getting frustrated or irritated when I miss a key.

Building institutional memory, one story at a time

Harold Jarche

We know that this type of knowledge cannot easily be codified. Finding ways to collect and share both types of knowledge is important for institutional memory. The Ritz-Carlton provides an excellent example with Stories that Stay with You.

The Net: Free infrastructure for speech, enterprise and assembly

Doc Searls

Nothing in human history, with the possible exception of movable type — has done more to encourage all those freedoms. Take radio and TV, for example. For example, when we say the Net consists of “sites,&# with “domains&# and “locations&# that we “architect,&# “design,&# “build&# and “visit,&# we are saying the Internet is a place.

‘Form’ing learning

Clark Quinn

While there are a number of steps to take (including how you work with SMEs, the details you attend to in your content, etc), their internal vocabulary talks about ‘knowledge checks’ and the goal was to do those better as they migrate existing courses to a new platform with a suite of assessment types. First we worked through the different types of assessment types (moving from true/false to more complex assessments like ‘submit and compare’).

For example, many libraries (be it K-12 or public) have setups like the following: . And yes, there are loads of examples out there today … libraries and offices already in positions of strength by already acting on this type of thinking.

Extending Engagement

Clark Quinn

To make a learning experience engaging, you need some additional things: knowing why this is of interest and relevance to practitioners, and putting that into the introduction, examples, and practice. Third, that if you unpack the meaningfulness of the examples, you’ll make the underlying thinking easier to assimilate. The examples are comprehended better, and that leads to more effectiveness. And that strikes me as the type of step one should be taking.

Evolution of the Chief Learning Officer
