2018 review: 21st century knowledge and skills

By . How to develop the knowledge and skills that learners will need in the 21st century was a growing topic of discussion not just in education but in the general media during 2018. As always, though, there is a good deal of nonsense and quite a few misconceptions in many of these discussions. More...

Intranets Look Vainly to Knowledge Management

Intranets Look Vainly to Knowledge Management
Fascinating, the vagueness you get when you attribute human qualities to non-human entities. By 'vainly' does the author mean 'with vanity' or 'in a futile fashion'? No matter. The author, responding to a recent Line56 column, advances the idea that knowledge cannot be captured. It's not an original criticism, but it's nicely put, if overstated. More...

Education Research in the Knowledge Society: Key Trends in Europe and North America

Education Research in the Knowledge Society: Key Trends in Europe and North America
Useful and interesting report looking at trends worldwide in the development of research strategies in online learning and related subjects worldwide. Worth noting is the author's characterization of the very different systems employed in the different countries: the establishment of a national centre in the university system (U.S.), the establishment of a government research agency (France, Germany), and a decentralized pluralist system with no focal point (U.K., Sweden, Canada). More...

Collaboration First, Then Knowledge Management

Collaboration First, Then Knowledge Management
This item has been picked up by a number of writers and seems to be worth sharing. It makes me think of a common criticism of knowledge management systems, that they are a solution in search of a problem. After all, if people simply call up a friend or fire off a fax, how does a knowledge management system helps. More...

Biases and Heuristics in Judgment and Decision Making: The Dark Side of Tacit Knowledge

Biases and Heuristics in Judgment and Decision Making: The Dark Side of Tacit Knowledge
Knowledge management theorists are engaged in the goal of 'extracting' tacit knowledge from people's minds, making it explicit in a knowledge base. Forget about whether or not this can be done: suppose it can. More...

The Knowledge Tree

The Knowledge Tree
Rod sent me this link to the newsest edition of The Knowledge Tree. My flight leaves shortly, there's no neat table of contents, and so I can't really assess it. But according to the announcement it contains "voice technologies, Vygotskian learning for creativity, knowledge management for e-business improvement, employability skills, collaborative community partnerships, digital 'multiliteracies', regional health service transformation, RTO sustainability, games using mobiles - GUMS for 15-19 year olds, ROI from simulation training, change management, and stories of innovative research and good practice in corporate and public sector flexible learning." Yeah. More...

The MIT Press and the MIT Media Lab Launch the Knowledge Futures Group

The MIT Press and the MIT Media Lab Launch the Knowledge Futures Group
MIT Press, 2018/09/26
While I'm sure the people at the Public Knowledge Project (PKP) are supportive of any initiative to get research into the public sphere, I'm sure they would be surprisaed to learn that MIT's new Knowledge Futures Group (KFG)  initiative is "a first-of-its kind collaboration between a leading publisher and a world-class academic lab to transform how research information is created and shared." Maybe MIT means "first in the US" or perhaps "first at MIT. More...

Applying diSessa’s Knowledge in Pieces Framework to Understanding the Notional Machine

Applying diSessa’s Knowledge in Pieces Framework to Understanding the Notional Machine
Mark Guzdial, Computing Education Research Blog, 2018/09/14
A few days ago I discussed the idea that you don't know something unless you have a conceptual understanding of it. This post caught my eye because it captures in some important ways the idea of knowledge as recognition and the role of relevant similarity. More...
