A model for sense-making : exploring why in the context of learning and knowing
Mason, Jon (2008) A model for sense-making : exploring why in the context of learning and knowing. In ICCE2008 - The 16th International Conference on Computers in Education, October 27-31, 2008, Taipei, Taiwan.
This paper outlines a working hypothesis that models the “problem space” spanning e-learning and knowledge management in simple terms. It does this by placing emphasis on the interrelationships between learning, knowing, and thinking within the context of a set of “primitive” questions: Who, What, When, Where, How, Why, and If. Particular attention is placed upon Why questions. By concentrating on these primitive questions it is anticipated that a certain degree of simplicity can be achieved in the model while not masking the richness and complexity that must be accommodated. It is proposed that such a model might inform the design and implementation of ICT systems that support e-learning and the creation and management of knowledge.
