Harold Jarche

“Perhaps the most central thrust in KM [knowledge management] is to capture and make available, so it can be used by others in the organization, the information and knowledge that is in people’s heads as it were, and that has never been explicitly set down.” — KM World.

Human Learning is Not About to Change Forever

Clark Quinn

In my inbox was an announcement about a new white paper with the intriguing title Human Learning is About to Change Forever. So naturally I gave up my personal details to download a copy. There are nine claims in the paper, from the obvious to the ridiculous. So I thought I’d have some fun. First, let’s get clear. Our learning runs on our brain, our wetware. And that’s not changing in any fundamental way in the near future.

Being human vs. rating people

I’ve hated rating people ever since I first encountered the practice. That was where everybody else does too: in school. Because rating people is what schools do, with tests and teachers’ evaluations. They do it because they need to sort students into castes.

How We Know

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

In my view, knowledge is a subjective feel, but there's a nice story behind it. The subjective feel appears circular: I say that I know when I can't not know. The story lies in the cause of this subjective feel: to know is to recognize. Recognition is involuntary, hence the modality of 'can't not know'. It is also non-grounded. The subjective feel is the knowledge. It's like recognizing a person. Your mother walks through the train station and you pick her out of the crowd.

What you learn not as important as how you learn!

Clark Quinn

I’m going a bit out on a limb here, with a somewhat heretical statement: what you learn is more important than how you learn ! (You You could say pedagogy supersedes curricula, but that’s just being pedantic. ;) And I’m pushing the boundaries of the concept a bit, but I think it’s worth floating as an idea. It’s meta-learning, of course, learning how to learn! The important point is to focus on what’s being developed. And I mean this at two levels.

Classical and Rigorous

Clark Quinn

A recent twitter spat led me to some reflections, and I thought I’d share. In short, an individual I do not know attacked one of my colleague Harold’s diagrams , and said that they stood against “everything classical and rigorous” My somewhat flip comment was that “the classical and rigorous is also outdated and increasingly irrelevant.
