King William's College “ the College has set an annual general knowledge test, known as the General Knowledge Paper (GKP). The pupils sit the test twice; once unseen on the day before the Christmas holidays, and again when they return to school in the New Year , after having spent the holiday researching the answers. However, the test is now voluntary. It is well-known to be highly difficult, a common score being just two correct answers from the list of several hundred. The best scores are 40 to 50 for the unseen test and about 270 out of 360 for the second sitting. Traditionally, the best scorers were given a half day free from school, while anyone doing particularly badly was given a detention. The quiz is always introduced with the following Latin motto : Scire ubi aliquid invenire possis, ea demum maxima pars eruditionis est&quot;, which translates as: &quot;To know where you can find anything is, after all, the greatest part of erudition.“ (Wikipedia) Erudition = profound scholarly knowledge
Read web became the read-write web in the past 10 years. We don’t search for information alone. We search for people who vet and add context to the information – the second layer of seach

A key to successful Community Facilitation is maintaining focus on the primary elements of intrinsic motivation: Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose. (Daniel Pink) A community facilitator should not look to role as a manager. The idea is to encourage exploration of the tools. To acknowledge successes and “reward” accordingly. As community grows and becomes more self-sustaining, the Community facilitator must recognize this and fade their presence
Symptom of poor community facilitation- River of information, drifting aimlessly, asleep at the wheel
Symptom of poor community facilitation- congested, no individual filter strategies, experience becomes annoying, not inspiring
Good community facilitation – plenty of movement, filters in place, community facilitator outside community no longer needing to be immersed within
Channels, Curation and Community – new role of the org learning professional In the 21 st century innovation is critical as we move from an Industrial Age mode of learning design to the Network Age We’re aren't asking our workers to simply produce widget, we’re asking for them to critically think and improve continuously Metrics get more difficult to measure as an organization moves away from tangible results and into areas of cultural change and agility Innovation Culture: Formal Social Learning initiatives to spawn new ideas around lingering problems
