In a world of information overload, Is Organisational Learning about learning with the database?
There are lots of database out in “space” and organisation. They offer learning affordance and opportunities for us. But the learning actually won’t be “activated” unless you interact with them (artifacts, machines) and even human within organisation who are behind those database. If the argument that learning can reside outside of ourselves is true, what does it mean to individuals? The database “learnt” as we “teach” it through Q/A. However, would such be AI based on algorithms and or would it involve human intervention and recurrent updating of the database? Quora is a good example where it acts like a database, where people posts questions and responses there. How does it differ from individual human learning (cognitive & affective) and social learning, and organisation learning? Have we tried to blend all three levels (neuro and biological, cognitive (conceptual) and social) into the connective learning based on connections (George) (Connecting to (adding) nodes and growing the network (social/conceptual/biological), and network phenomena & recognition of such patterns (Stephen)?
