Two types of knowledge

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.

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?

#C2Xmas Day 1 – The Blood Typing Game

Jane Hart

Today we’ll start off with The Blood Typing Game, one my favourites! What happens if you get a blood transfusion with the wrong blood type? Even though a patient’s own blood type is the first choice for blood transfusions, it’s not always available at the blood bank. Try to save some patients’ lives and learn about human blood types. THE BLOOD TYPING GAME. It’s 1st December so I am going to start the Countdown to Xmas #C2Xmas here.

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.

(3) Three Types of Learning Flow

In previous posts in this series I talked about the concept of a Learning Flow, as a continuous stream of social micro-learning activities, and explained how the user experience differs from being on a course or learning from the unstructured knowledge sharing in activity streams.

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.

Aggregation Types

Aggregation Types As I'm thinking about this, there's likely a few different forms of aggregation implied by looking at systems like Social Media Today , OLDaily , Communities and Networks Connection , Techmeme , Sphinn and Digg. Great article in Wall Street Journal - Information Wants to Be Expensive (found via Big Dog Little Dog ) suggests that more people should be charging for content online.

Types of thinking

Clark Quinn

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.

Harold Feld presents the legal argument against AT&T’s claim that if the FCC reclassifies the Internet under Title II of the Communications Act (so that the FCC can once again have the authority to regulate those who provide access to it), the FCC will be legally required to allow AT&T to take money from big companies to move their bits faster than yours. Waiver: yes, I’m putting this prejudicially.

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.

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. Herewith, a bit of an account of some of the many different types of meaning: Literal meaning - the sentence means what it says. Cope and Kalantzis) Type meaning - the sentence's meaning is related to what it doesn't say, to the range of possible words or sentences that could be said instead (Derrida).

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.

Types and proportions of learning activities?

Clark Quinn

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. I’ve been on quite the roll of late, calling out some bad practices and calling for learning science. And it occurs to me that there could be some pushback. What does that mean? Let’s break it down.

Types of Blog Discussions

Tony Karrer

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. See Five Things Meme as an example.

Touch Typing - Cursive Writing - Why?

Tony Karrer

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.

Typekit Takes Great Type to the Masses

Adaptive Path

Not only because we believe that type is crucial to design, brand and the communication of our work, but because it could not have happened to better people. You can only go so far expressing yourself with Times New Roman and Helvetica. But those lame old web constraints are disappearing, thanks to Typekit , and now (surprise!), their parent company Adobe. We were so excited to hear about the acquisition of Typekit by Adobe yesterday.

BBC World Service has an excellent radio documentary on the history and practice of terrorist profiling. Unlike many pieces on the psychology of terrorism, which tend to take a Hollywood view of the problem, it’s an insightful, critical and genuinely enlightening piece on the false promises and possibilities of applied psychology in the service of stopping terrorists.

Types of Knowledge and Connective Knowledge

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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.
