What I Learned Twitter This Week: On learning and responsibility

Absorbing uncertainty:much HR practice seems focused on abrogation rather than assumption of responsibility” by @snowded

@tonykarrer social learning tools should have 1) obvious value & 2) be the same tools as your work tools [because work is learning & learning is the work]

Good post on learning to learn by @sumeet_moghe People learn iteratively, over time:

It’s interesting how I learnt to use chopsticks though. At one point I decided that eating with chopsticks was cool, since I’d seen some of my friends do it and it was kind of a distinctive thing to do. So I read up a “how-to” for using chopsticks, which since I had no opportunity to use, I forgot in a few days. So when I actually did get the opportunity to use chopsticks, I fumbled for the first ten minutes and actually messed up my shirt! It took me about an hour to finish my meal, but by the end I had found an inelegant way that worked for me. As time passed and I visited more oriental restaurants, I gradually perfected the art — often I’d get little tips and hints from my friends and that helped me get better. Now, I can eat a complete meal with chopsticks and pretty quickly too!

via @fdomon great post by @johnt : The myth of knowledge objects – the gap between knowing and acting:

Quoting Patrick Lamb (PDF) “There is a profound and dangerous autism in the way we describe knowledge management and e-learning. At its root is an obsessive fascination with the idea of knowledge as content, as object, and as manipulable artefact. It is accompanied by an almost psychotic blindness to the human experiences of knowing, learning, communicating, formulating, recognising, adapting, miscommunicating, forgetting, noticing, ignoring, choosing, liking, disliking, remembering and misremembering.”

@tonykarrer A few great comments already around Creative Commons – Fail!

Bottom line is that Creative Commons is failing to really help us. If you have to go and contact each license holder to find out, you are basically in the same boat as with copyright.
