A list of alternatives to "homework", e.g. instead of setting questions for people to answer, get them to set them. Instead of giving a list of things to memorise get them to make their own memorisation trick
When considering my last two investigations into parenting and cognitive development of children, I found that the innovative method of teaching by use of children needed more exploration and suppo...
Robert Weeks's insight:
An interesting article that explores Edgar Dale's "Cone of Experience", which started as a way of showing how different methods may support learning, but has now had various numbers added with no apparent empirical basis.
However, this doesn't mean that we should completely discredit it, with numerous reasons for peer learning being preferable to passive learning (being in control, constant reflection, relating to others, being empowered). It's not to say that other methods shouldn't be used, but that we should always consider learning experiences as close to the real world as possible.
Our dominant business models are the legacy of military hierarchies. But in a networked world these are inefficient, ineffective, and stifle innovation.
Robert Weeks's insight:
"A core requirement for both knowledge workers, and enterprise tools, is to share what we are learning and doing. Making work more explicit enables the organization to learn. Sharing user-generated content (knowledge artifacts) is how everyone can make tacit knowledge more explicit. Work is learning and learning is the work, when everyone shares. Of course this is more difficult if communications systems do not allow the easy creation and sharing of this content. Tools have to support the work."
"When people share openly, without any direct gain, knowledge networks thrive and the organization benefits. Cooperative skills include sharing openly with colleagues, communicating effectively, and networking to improve business performance"
"Workers need to know who to ask for advice at the moment of need. However, this requires a certain level of trust, and we know that trusted relationships take time to nurture. The default action in emergencies is usually to turn to our friends and trusted colleagues; those people with whom we have shared experiences. Workers have to start sharing more of their work experiences now, in order to grow their trusted professional networks to deal with new and more complex situations. This is called working out loud. It helps build trust"
