Two types of knowledge

Jay Cross

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. Retention of explicit knowledge is easily measured and graded and for that reason it’s where tests focus, over-simplified or not. We grade recent recall, but people have forgotten 90% of what they learned before they have the opportunity to apply it.

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. then Sanders has uttered nine (9) word tokens, but seven (7) word types (because the words 'sparrow' and 'a' are each repeated twice). A type is, well, a type of thing. Just what is a type?

Types of meaningful processing

Clark Quinn

In an previous post , I argued for different types and ratios for worthwhile learning activities. I know there are other resources that I should know about (pointers welcome), but I’m currently wrestling with several types of situations and wanted to share my thinking. Another type of task is helping people understand applying models to make decisions. I’ve been thinking about this (and working on it) quite a bit lately.

Three Types of Workplace Mindsets

Dan Pontefract

I’d be delighted to hear your opinion on the following definitions of “Workplace Mindsets” I’m toying with in relation to my next book. Job Mindset: Employed to perform transactional duties in return for compensation and nothing else. Career Mindset: Working in an occupation for increased girth, with a fixation on advancing salary, title and/or span of control.

Types of thinking

Harold Jarche reviews Marina Gorbis’ new book The Nature of the Future, finding value in it. I was intrigued by one comment which I thought was relevant to organizations. It has to do with the nature of thinking. In it, this quote struck a nerve: “Gorbis identifies unique human skills” The list of them intrigued me: Sensemaking. Social and emotional intelligence. Novel and adaptive thinking. Moral and ethical reasoning.

Three types of KM

Harold Jarche

In an organizational knowledge sharing framework , I put together several ideas to show how knowledge could be shared and codified. As I explain this to others I realize that these ideas go against many established assumptions about knowledge in organizations. For example, knowledge management is not a software system, but really three processes that are conducted in parallel and support each other; namely Big KM , Little KM and PKM [ Patti Anklam ].

Types and proportions of learning activities?

So let me be clear, I strongly suggest that the types of learning that are needed are not info dump and knowledge test, by and large. Two types, in a simple framework.

Types of Meaning

no male and female brain types

Mind Hacks

It makes sense to talk about there being different male and female types of genitals. Although there may not be categorical types, a follow up analysis showed that it is possible to classify the brains used in the Joel paper as belonging to a man or a women at somewhere between 69%-77% accuracy. What would it mean for there to be a “male brain” or a “female brain”? Human genitals are mostly easy to categorise just by sight as either male or female.

“FLOPS are not Intelligence” The Type Error of the Singularity

There’s a type error there, which is conflating FLOPS with intelligence. In my last post, which recapped a fascinating lunch I had with a bunch of economists and AI researchers at MIT, I wrote. Computers are getting bigger and faster, but not ‘smarter’ in any human sense of the word. Artificial intelligence bears very little relationship to the human variety, and the two are not going to merge.

Touch Typing - Cursive Writing - Why?

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. 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.

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. There are different types of meaning, said some. And there are different types of knowing.
