Stealing Our Smarts: Indigenous knowledge in On-Line Learning
Tell me what you know….Knowledge and knowing can be a very tricky thing. Reflect on what you are fairly certain that you know. Self-certainty in human knowledge is a function of metacognition primarily. This paper addresses how we know what we know about the most primal and fundamental functions in our everyday lives, and equates the ways in which technology has invaded such spaces as romance to the ways in which technology has begun to infiltrate our own understandings of learning. Through an examination of indigenous knowledge, also thought of as folk knowledge, but meaning that knowledge which is resident within the learner themselves, this paper asserts that we need to move to more of a user-design (Carr, 1997) approach to online learning design and development.
