Clark Quinn

That is, not only what activity might  mean learning, but what mean meta-learning?  I started wondering about a vocabulary, but realized that you’d have to have activity that you could actually detect was evidence of meta-learning.

Activities for Integrating Learning

Clark Quinn

I’ve been working on a learning design that integrates developing social media skills with developing specific competencies, aligned with real work.  It’s an interesting integration, and I drafted a pedagogy that I believe accomplishes the task.  It draws heavily on the notion of activity -based learning.

Types and proportions of learning activities?

Clark Quinn

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.  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. What does that mean? Let’s break it down. First, let me suggest that what’s going to make a difference to organizations is not better fact-remembering. There are times when fact remembering is needed, such as medical vocabulary (my go-to example). This comes from model-based reasoning.

Activating Latent Knowledge Capacity

George Siemens

Facebook allowed anyone to start sharing images, ideas, and form social networks and to do so in a single tool with similar functionality across different activities.

Twitter/Facebook, activate multiple latent capacities: sharing, social connections, and images. Once we know what people know, we have a chance to activate latent knowledge through social and technological approaches.
