Tony Karrer writes, "I'm becoming convinced that folks in the informal learning realm are quite willing to live with 'free range' learning. It's way too touchy-feely and abstract for me. If this stuff is important, then I want to:
- Know that it will work
- Know why it works
- Know that it's repeatable."
He is reacting to George Siemens, who writes, "We have a rough end target (solve this problem, innovate, adapt, etc.)...and we really don't have a clear process (other than teams, meetings, and emerging collaborative spaces)." I don't think Siemens is right, really, but explaining why - and meeting Karrer's challenge - takes a bit of doing. More on this tomorrow.
