Knowledge and Tragedy: Or Why We Shouldn't Share Knowledge

Knowledge and Tragedy: Or Why We Shouldn't Share Knowledge
I wouldn't be citing this paper at all under ordinary circumstances, but it is just so wrong-headed it merits a mention, if only as a representative of a line of thinking that runs deeply against my core beliefs.

The ''Other'' Knowledge

The ''Other'' Knowledge
It's hard to know what to say about this item. One thing is that it taps into some important underlying truths about cognition - that we think in images and symbols, that there are habitual and instinctual elements to intelligence, that these are sometimes manifest as what we would call a 'hunch' or an instinct.

Is the Role of the Teacher as the "Knowledge Authority" in Danger in an ICT-Learning Setting?

The Autism of Knowledge Management

The Autism of Knowledge Management
Today's longish issue has a theme of sorts, though I don't know exactly what it is - something to do with the nature of objects, games and the new learner. And the futility of trying to move from the physical world of artifacts to the virtual world of ideas while keeping all your concepts, parasigms and practices intact. More...

The Knowledge Economy: Learning and Work Integrated
The premise of this paper (MS Word document), which looks at workplace learning, is that "the role of education in preparing individuals with differing interests and ambitions to become responsible citizens in a democratic context, and in creating an adaptable workforce, will continue to grow." But how do we understand this trend. More...

Universities racing to provide lectures on crypto

University Business Magazine logoKnowledge is power, particularly in the Information Age, where an understanding of ‘the new’ can provide an edge over the competition.

Metacademy: a package manager for knowledge

Metacademy: a package manager for knowledge
Roger Grosse, Machine Learning (Theory), February 18, 2014
OK, so the good news here is that some computer science professors (Roger Grosse and Colorado Reed) have determined that course design should reflect more the structure of the discipline rather than a linear model of subjects arranged in the order a professor deems best. More...

KaaS – a New Way of Sharing Knowledge and Experiences

KaaS – a New Way of Sharing Knowledge and Experiences
Kenneth OE Sundin, WIFL, January 10, 2014
