article by Nicholas Negroponte (Seymour Papert reference)

Project Based Learning? ApprenticeShip? Constructionism?

Does this tend to focus on Tacit Knowledge?

hmm, I think John Holt would say we should just "LearnToDo".

The problem is that this idea is used in 2 very different ways

  • learn to do something by doing it, not by listening to someone talk about it (Intrinsic)

  • learn something abstract (e.g. geometry) by starting from some supposedly relevant application of it (Extrinsic)

also theory in Economics by Kenneth Arrow describing how moving along the Learning Curve creates Positive Returns for market leaders.
