Knowledge, Learning, Community
This post is an interesting look at approaches to self-directed learning and an excuse to post an absolutely beautiful photo of an unusual bird (I spend a lot of time photographing birds - I should assemble my bird photos one day - they are hard to capture even with digital cameras, and my experience is that the new equipment doesn't offer any short cuts - you still have to do f-stops and rules of thirds and all that - but allows you many more mistakes). Beth Kanter identifies two major types of learning, illustrated below:
- Product-driven learning - mindful, mostly linear, and focused.
- Process-driven learning - seeing patterns, listening and scanning, serendipity – not pure randomness, but orchestrated.
