What I Learned on Twitter this Week–A quotable week

Here are some words of wisdom, gleaned from Twitter this past week.


@snowded: Narrative as Mediator:

Without the mediation of narrative there can be no knowledge transfer or learning.
Without the symbolic, learning will not diffuse to broad populations & there will be no advance.
Without embodied knowledge there will be no wisdom.
