Today’s knowledge climate – why Webfuse approach is better

George Siemens has a online presentation intended to introduce key concepts for a presentation he is giving at Online Educa.

The second slide attempts to characterise today’s knowledge climate. For me, each of these characteristics resonate with the ideas behind Webfuse and why a “LMS” implementation makes better sense implemented ateleologically, rather than teleologically.

The characteristics are

  • Continual suspended certainty
  • Connected specialisation
  • Complexity and co-creation
  • Continual
  • Chaotic

Slide 5 is a nice representation of how life needs to stop for learning and how it no longer represents the current reality.

Slide 7 talks about the problem with plan-driven approaches and its limitations.
