John Seely Brown : Tinkering (or Thinkering) as a Mode of Knowledge Production
"I am what I create" says John Seely Brown addressing the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching - Stanford, CA, Oct. 23-25, 2008. Also see discussion of Brown's ideas at http://www.tcwhq.com/wp/?p=36 , where Tom rethinks the role of authority, learning from open-source movement, culture of continuous learning. Thinkering = tinkering + productive inquiry.

Booki: CollaborativeFutures
"As we began the collaborative process of crafting this book on the future of collaboration, we realized we were all working from a set of assumptions, many of them shared, some of them divergent. We were talking about a specific form of collaboration, specific media of collaboration, and specific goals of collaboration. And we were talking about a specific history of collaboration, and a correspondingly specific set of futures."


Education
Learning Domains or Bloom's Taxonomy
http://www.skagitwatershed.org/~donclark/hrd/bloom.html
There is more than one type of learning. A committee of colleges, led by Benjamin Bloom (1956), identified three domains of educational activities: ◦ Cognitive: mental skills (Knowledge) ◦ Affective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (Attitude) ◦ Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (Skills)

Lorin Anderson, a former student of Bloom, revisited the cognitive domain in the learning taxonomy (mid-90s)

Lisa Suben and KIPP - Washington Post (Dec 2006)
"The core of her method is the workbook she produced last year on the fly. It "lets students build their own notes and create their own examples. It is incredibly active learning," she said. They were encouraged to write down the meaning of important terms and strategies they used that worked with certain kinds of problems."
