How do we learn?

“We can know more than we can tell” (Polanyi 1966, p. 4).

Want to take a minute and think about what Polanyi said?

Do we really know more than we can tell? And if yes, how did we learn all that?

We had a few years of formal education, and then each job we took-up came with a few instructions, but then what we learned at the battle-ground (workplace) is something we learnt on-the-go.

How about taking a minute and reflecting on how we became this knowledge body that we are?

They say a picture says a thousand words.

Do you think now we (can) know why we know more than even we can tell?

Let’s talk more soon!
